Dress up your front porch with scary Halloween decorations in black, white and orange. You’ll find lots of inspiration to spook up your place!
Welcome to my haunted house.
As they say, turn back now — or risk being inundated with lots of photos of scary Halloween decorations!
Our large front porch is one of my favorite spaces to decorate every holiday season, especially Halloween. When decorating for Halloween, I try to use what already have in new and unique ways because the number of holiday bins in our attic is getting a little scary!
Still, I usually add a few new spooky elements each year to keep things fresh. But I always try to buy things I can use again, perhaps elsewhere in our house.
When trick or treaters climb our porch steps, they’re greeted by these spooky tombstone luminaria bags and mini pumpkins.
Know what I love best about these? That Wayfair correctly calls them luminarias, not luminaries! (Grammar nerd!)
I flanked the front door with two Cinderella pumpkin topiaries in black urns.
Be careful, or they might attack!
Every year, I put skulls in this lantern beside the front door because Pinterest loves it!
Whenever you have the chance to put a skull in a lantern, do it! Maximum creepiness for very little effort!
When it comes to decorating for Halloween, you can never have too many bats, skeletons or creepy crawlies!
Of course, the toddler next door wasn’t frightened at all by my scary Halloween decorations. He giggled when he saw the skeleton and all the witch hats hanging along the porch.
But then, toddlers are fearless!
This end of the porch is giving me all the “Haunting of Hill House” vibes thanks to the creative backdrop I hung over the window.
It’s a haunted house shower curtain! It’s going to be a staple of my Halloween decorating for years to come. There are lots of other photo-realistic Halloween shower curtains available on Wayfair; I had a hard time choosing just one.
It looks so spooky as you approach the house. Our overgrown camellia bushes just add to the scary ambiance, right? (I think Halloween might be my favorite holiday because you don’t have to clean up any dust, spiderwebs or disrepair.)
As I do every year, I dressed up the black buffet I painted with some scary Halloween decorations.
Of course, I had to put out the smoky crystal balls I made last year. These might be my favorite Halloween craft ever.
And you can’t get much scarier than a warty pumpkin!
It’s the stuff of nightmares!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this tour of the scary Halloween decorations on our front porch.
