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. Speaking of spiders, you might want to make sure that there aren't any real ones in the house or on your porch before you start decorating! I'm sure people will enjoy a little spookiness, but not in the form of actual creepy-crawlies. So, before you begin with decorations, my advice would be to get in touch with a Spider & Raccoon Removal company so they can get rid of any and all critters/animals lurking about. Anyway, 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!
How did you get the spiders to stick on your house?
Just with a tiny nail! The legs are wire so I wrapped around the nail + it worked perfect!
