Here, we’ve gathered some of the top ways to decorate your porch for Halloween. So take a look, find the decorations which suit you, and get into the spirit!
Simple Do-It-Yourself Projects
Candy corn is one of the most important symbols of the Halloween season and candles are great too, so why not combine the two? Take an empty hurricane glass, fill it halfway with candy corn, and then add an orange or black candle. Fill the glass up a little further so the candy corn goes around the candle and you’ve got a great, festively scented decoration for your porch. For something a little creepier, consider adding some tattered drapes. You can take some cheesecloth and soak it in tea overnight to create an aged look. Dry it out and staple it in 6-8 feet sections after cutting random holes to create a tattered appearance.
Make Any Home A Fun Haunted House
Fake broken glass? We’ve got you covered. Attach contact paper directly to the window and cut away jagged areas to create an illusion of broken glass! Even easier than most of the other DIY porch decorations, adding spooky, dangling skulls is a great touch for any Halloween porch. You can find plastic skulls in most craft stores around this time of the year, so grab a few and spray paint them. Then group them together with double sided tape and hang them up!
