Crows Front Porch
Gather a murder of crows at your door for a spooky Halloween front porch. Use a combination of crows created from black contact paper and artificial crows ($19, Oriental Trading) hung from fishing line to create an immersive experience that even Moira Rose would appreciate. Add a twiggy tree made from contact paper to your front door to give these feathered fiends a place to perch. Fill out the front steps with black lanterns, pumpkins and urns filled with mums.
Fall Festival Front Porch
Capture the charm of a fall festival on your doorstep with a stylish arrangement of dried grasses and white mums in large metal bins. Fill out the look with hay bales and the muted tones of heirloom pumpkins. For a little farmhouse style, paint white pumpkins with black and gray squares to create a buffalo check pattern. String beads and felt poms to create a simple and sweet garland.
Simply Creepy Front Porch
All it takes is a few plastic rats ($3, Oriental Trading) scurrying about to create a front porch display that would make anyone squeamish. Place the rodents around your front door and let them climb a ladder or perch on outdoor furniture for an infested feel. Wrap sisal rope around letter frames to craft an alarming welcome message to your door. After Halloween, swap out the door decor for a wreath and remove the rats to make your front porch guest-ready for Thanksgiving.
Spider Web Front Porch
Giant spider webs instantly give a charming front porch a haunted house vibe. Made with braided yarn, these large webs can be reused year after year. Stretch spiderwebbing along the railing. Fill out the rest of the front porch with a variety of carved pumpkins tucked in wooden crates and large lanterns.
