One of the easiest things you can do is to add bats. This works especially well on siding, windows and doors. It takes just a few minutes to make a haunting Halloween porch! It’s just $5 for 108 reusable bats! You can shop the bats here!
You can easily transition your porch from fall to Halloween by adding a skeleton. There are so many ways to prop them up! Make him/her climb onto your portico, peep out from the bushes, sit on the bench and more!
You can get a life size posable skeleton here.
Add a skeleton to a chair, sofa or bench indoors or out. He’ll definitely take guests by surprise. Give just a hint that something is amiss, like toes peeking out from under the sheet.
The skeletons that can strike a post are so hilarious and it’s fun to change them around to tease your kids and neighbors!
Skeletons are so fun and versatile, don’t you think?
A black bird hanging from a cage or merely sitting on a chair is terrifying in itself! After watching Hitchcock’s “The Birds,” I feel a chill come through the air just seeing one!
Cover mums and corners with spider webs! It’s a hauntingly fun way to update your porch for Halloween!
Dying mums? No problem! Give the illusion that everything is dead and has been left untouched. There’s no better time to have a brown thumb!
Silhouettes are typically cut from black construction paper. It’s an inexpensive way to give a little peek into your home – black cats, bats, haunted houses are all easy to make in minutes! You can learn how to make a silhouette here!
Illuminate using battery operated pillar candles to up the eek factor! The best part about these glowy pillar candles is that they are so easy to transition for holiday decor, too.

This is another charming way to add a traditional, vintage flair to your Halloween porch decor. This cute cauldron is affordable and oh-so-cute for parties and decorating!
If you have a larger porch, you can hang witch hats using fishing line! It’s bewitching! You can also hang them in your yard on trees!
These hanging ghosts look so adorable when blowing in that chilly fall breeze. Hanging ghosts are easy to make yourself but such a cute addition to your fall porch.
Last but not least! Resist the temptation, consider it a blessing. I told you this would be easy!
It just so happens that I’m best at making a mess and I’ll take Halloween and make it an excuse to leave our home a little aloof. Leaves, dead spiders and real webs add haunting appeal.
