I love fall decorating, and I really enjoy Halloween, but frankly, indoors, my fall decor wins out. But that doesn’t mean I want to 86 the idea of having some Halloween fun! My solution is to come up with some front porch Halloween decorating, so that I can enjoy the “holiday”, but not compromise the indoors. In other words, no spiders allowed inside my house! So this year, Steve and I have gone out and found some great front porch Halloween decorating ideas, and are sharing our favs here with you. Some are tutorials, some are just great ideas, all of them are fun!

First one up is from ‘Chapman Place’. You can learn how to make these glitter trick or treat pillows out of a drop cloth, or you can purchase them at her Etsy store. So cute for a front porch swing!

From ‘BHG‘, these rooftop skeletons are held in place with invisible fishing line… Obviously, how you pose your skeletons is key! This makes me smile and creeps me out all at the same time.

‘Weekly Scrapper’ made this tutorial on their countdown to Halloween project from cedar boards, but I imagine it would look amazing with reclaimed or scrap wood as well! A stencil, some paint and a dollar store chalkboard completes the countdown.

Make this Halloween house (on your house!) with this easy, and inexpensive project by ‘Nifty Thrifty Living’. How fun is this?!!

Make these owl night watchers for either side of your front door, from ‘Martha’… They made these out of poster board (it would have to be a protected porch!) but I’m thinking black craft foam would stand a little light weather… Just print out the template and then trace onto the craft foam… You will have to go to your craft store to get large sheets of craft foam, or I found rolls of it online at Consumer Crafts.

This one is just an inspirational idea, done with discount store spider webs and spiders… Great idea for how to lay out a real spooky front porch! Lighting is key! Now this is Halloween decorating at it’s finest!
