Every October it goes a little something like this, hey I think I’ll add just a little bit of fall to my porch… then all of a sudden BAM! There are spiders, webs, pumpkins, and witch hats everywhere. Today I thought I would share my playful Halloween Front Porch I created this year.
I started off inspired by my DIY Floating Witch Hats I did last year inside our home. Our tree in our little front porch area has grown quite a bit this summer, so I thought hanging them from it would be so fun. It was really so simple, just Dollar Spot hats and fishing string around the branches. I think it’s so fun to see them mystically floating and swaying in the wind.
The next little layer of Halloween whimsy I added were the giant spiders on our house. I think they are so fun around our front door. Someday I want to put them EVERYWHERE on the roof, on the garage, everywhere. I added some creepy fabric on our portico for good measure. Literally, that’s what it was called at Target, creepy fabric. It still makes me laugh.
I even wired some smaller spiders into my wreath, because hello spooky fun.
None of the pumpkins I had out there were feeling right, something was missing… I decided to grab MORE pumpkins (obvious choice) and spray paint them white, add some spooky faces, and man… that just REALLY brought it together. Along with some mums I found at our local Nursery.
That’s it! What do you think? I never used to do Halloween Decor, but my kids think it’s the best thing of their lives. I love our house to be a place where my children look forward to being, so if adding some spooky touches helps me along that mission. You can bet I’m going to do it!
