A few weeks ago I pulled together this blog post all about my previous Halloween decor for the whole house. And then last week I posted my tutorial on how to make your own DIY Spooky Halloween Trees. So when I finally had the idea solidified for this spooky cute Halloween porch, I knew it deserved its own blog post!
Every year I try to come up with new fall inspiration for my front porch! I actually love doing my fall porch and I never want it to get old, so the new inspiration keeps it fresh and fun. And over the years I’ve learned some great tips for pulling together the perfect spooky cute Halloween porch. So I want to share those tips with you!
Spooky Cute Halloween Porch Tips
My first tip is to always pull together what you already have and see how you can reuse or repurpose it. Assess what you have and then figure out what you need to fill in the blanks.
In my case, I pulled together what I had and my first purchase was the faux mums. Normally I do real ones, but these faux ones look so real and can be reused year after year. Next, I repurposed old door wreaths on top of pots and put in my spooky branches I made.
My next tip is layered door mats. I’ve used the same striped one for 3 years now and layered a newer, smaller witch feet door mat over it.
Woven, natural textures are always great for fall! Things like straw brooms, baskets, and woven pumpkins always look good.
Our family skeleton Coco has been with us for 3 years now as well. At one point Lou spelt with it every night. He had seen better days, aka he lost his head but it was an easy fix and we were back in business. I put Coco in one planter and his friend in the other with some pumpkins and sticks through their backs to hold them up. If you’re having trouble posing your skeletons, I recommend this tip. Depending on the size, the stick kind of disappears and you hardly notice it.
Be mysterious. Sometimes alluding to a character, like a witch like I did, is more fun that just actually placing a character on the porch.
Another tip I have is to place items in groups of odd numbers. Odd numbers are more appealing to the eye! You’ll see I often do groups of 3 or 5.
My festive fall porch is one of my favorite fall traditions that I’ve created. I love getting to pull out the decorations and seeing what I can pull together with what I have. This spooky cute Halloween porch may just be my favorite porch yet. But I say that every year! Don’t forget to look back at my previous Halloween porches for more ideas!
