Outdoor Halloween Decor

I got into the car yesterday and my youngest, Amelia said to me “Maman, do you know why everybody is decorating their houses?” and I was about to answer when daddy gave me the look like – don’t do it.  The look that tells me she will have a huge meltdown if I actually respond with the answer because she is the one who wants to tell me even though she asked in question form, haha.  I, of course responded with the required “why?”.  Which she then responded quite loudly “HALLOWEEN IS COMING!!”.

This huge burst of enthusiasm made me realize that I had been so busy decorating the store for the holiday that I had completely forgotten about the home front.  I am usually super excited about decorating and preparing for every holiday and I have now realized that in just two short weeks it will be trick or treat time and my girls have no costumes and I have no plans for decor.  What a horrible mother I am, haha.  So, tonight we begin the Halloween plans and I thought I would share my top 10 Outdoor Halloween Decor inspiration.

I had a hard time finding the original sources for the first few but I am totally loving the vintagey feel of this one.

Outdoor Halloween Decor1

This one may be a little dark for the kids but I thought it was cool (maybe when Amelia is older).

Outdoor Halloween Decor2

Using pumpkins as canvases is such a great idea.


This is also a little creepy but brilliant.

Outdoor Halloween Decor4

I like the natural look of this one which I found here.

Outdoor Halloween Decor5

There were actually a couple I liked in this post, but this was my favourite.  Polka dots – my fav!

Outdoor Halloween Decor6

I love this little cheap and cheerful outdoor decor idea found here.

Outdoor Halloween Decor7

This cute entrance features a trapped witch that I saw here but I don’t think it is the original source.  Now to find those tights.

Outdoor Halloween Decor8

I found this idea of incorporating gourds in a whole new way on the Better Homes & Gardens website.

And last but not least, one from the Martha Stewart website where there is even a tutorial on making the hanging bats.

There is also a section with free Halloween clip-art if you are looking for some inspiration.

I shall keep you posted on our projects and give you the final unveil of our porch shortly.  Wish me luck!!!

    Stephanie B’s Creative Designs here. WOW so much to pick from. My children and I use to do our house up. Now that they are grown and have their own house to do up, mine doesn’t have anything on the porch!! I will have to get out and put up a pumpkin!! BL

  25. Mary Kay Lyons-McDonnell says:

    These are so inspirational. I rarely decorate my front porch. I put the carved pumpkins, and then a plastic scary thing on the front door. I love window clings and I have some rats. But that’s about it. I love the witch in the pot so cool BL
