“For it is in giving that we receive." – Francis of Assisi
Spooky Front Door
There’s nothing scarier than welcoming people into your house with a dose of spooky fun. Decorating your front door is by far one of the best ways to do it. There are of course many Halloween wreath ideas, but ultimately, you simply want something that’s unique from everybody else in the neighborhood and spooky enough to make your heart skip a beat.
Outside Halloween decorations don’t need to be complicated to be fun and exciting. They can be as simple as it gets and still have a huge impact. On the image above, you can see simple “planks made from cardboard and ripped cheesecloth to create a very creative effect.
We all know that pumpkins and candy are two of the most important things when it comes to Halloween decor and fun. So how about combining both of them for a spooky and enjoyable experience for the kids?
The only thing you need to do is cut open a large gourd or pumpkin. Drill two holes on either side and put in a collection of twigs to act as the handle. Fill the basket with candy and greet all those neighborhood kids as they come to trick or treat.
But in case you don’t want to add candy, you can still use smaller pumpkins instead. It’s still a beautiful Halloween themed decor that everybody will love.
If, for some reason, you don’t think all the outdoor pumpkin decor ideas are enough, you can take things up a notch by adding a few balloon spiders. Just think about it. Is there anything spookier than giant black spiders hanging from your exterior walls?
The great thing about balloon spiders is that they look scary and can bring a new spooky dimension to Halloween decor without going away from the theme of the day.
Retro Candy Wreath
A retro candy wreath is built using old fashioned candy in autumn colors glued to a foam wreath. If you want to take a ride back memory lane and bring those nostalgic moments of Halloween growing up, then this is the best decor to go for. It’s also easy to make and should add a Halloween themed feel to your entryway.
Spider Web Doormat
Welcoming guests with a dash of scary fun doesn’t have to end with the wreaths only. For instance, you can consider placing a neat spider web doormat at the front door and scare those little ones as they come to treat or trick. In some cases, you may add an accompanying spider to the mat just to make things a bit interesting. But everyone will enjoy it no doubt.
To make it, you’ll only need to purchase a black doormat and draw the lines using white paint and a thin bristle paint brush. Cutting the edges is optional, you can also just leave the piece in its original shape and it will still look awesome.
Vintage Halloween Mask Wreath
While spooky will always be on the menu while creating Halloween porch decor, it’s also important to add a fun and exciting element to all this.
One way to get that done is by putting together a wreath with retro Halloween masks attached. This is one of those decor ideas that can grab the attention of anyone and bring out a great feeling of nostalgia.
Scary Crow Wreath
There’s just something about crows that creeps the hell out of people. Well, you can mash them up into your Halloween outdoor decor by incorporating a nice crow inspired wreath on your front door. You will require some twigs here and a few black faux crows, which you can easily cut from cardboard.
- Wrap the twigs around to create a simple rounded shape, and spray paint it black.
- Once you’re done, attach the spooky crows onto the wreath and proceed to hang the entire ensemble on the door.
Although this decor idea looks simple at first, it does have a unique feel to it. Besides, this is one of those DIY projects that you can do with the kids.
Making Halloween fun and enjoyable always comes down to many things. But getting the decor right is crucial. The simple ideas above should help you get that spooky and fun holiday feeling going.
