20 Fun and Spooky Halloween Porch Decorating Ideas

There is no better way to give your home the Halloween feel than to welcome guests with anything spooky!

No, you do not need to let them scream in fear. Just make them feel that it is indeed just a few days before Halloween.

How would you do that?

Well, decorating your yard would be a good idea but if you do not have a lawn or a garden, you can actually decorate your home’s porch!

Yes, you got that right.

Your porch will be a perfect way to welcome guests with a big “boo” by using your home decors.

So, if you are looking for ways on how to do that, we have collated some awesome porch designs that will no doubt inspire you to start decorating!

Come take a look:

1. Bat Decorations

Bat Decorations


For a simple porch design, you can try something like this. Just use a simple bat template then cut them out to make realistic looking bats. The two brooms add a bewitching feature while the presence of bats could mean Count Dracula is visiting. Complete your decor with an array of pumpkins on your steps or porch in different sizes and colors.

2. Front Porch Frost

If you want a colorful porch, you can use this one as an inspiration. Aside from the festive banner in the middle, there are other colorful decors around it too like the pumpkins on both sides of the door.

3. Spider and Bat Invasion

Spider and Bat Invasion

One Good Thing by Jillee

This one is all about spiders and bats which is very easy to achieve. All you have to do it to make it look like they are invading your entire home. Use black poster board for the bat and black painted Styrofoam balls for the spider. Then scatter some pumpkins for an orange touch!

4. Ding-Dong


Womans Day

You can copy this style simply by flanking your front door with apple barrels. Cover pool noodles with striped stockings and add pointy heels to achieve this witch-themed porch.

5. Halloween Front Door 2012

The Family Chapters

That sure is an interesting door! But do you know that it is actually very easy to make? Just use a masking tape to form the web. Then add a toy spider in the middle. Be creative with your other decors too.

10. 5 Steps to a Spooky Halloween Front Porch

Design Improvised

I like the idea of adding some framed plants on the wall. This could use real plants but synthetic ones will also work. For a spooky look, crows are added on the porch as well as a large skeleton which appears like taking a rest in the area.

Aside from the pumpkins and gourds here, notice that it features a black and white painted pumpkins stacked on top of each other. Another cute feature are the throw pillows and the gold and black buntings!

15. Enter at Your Own Risk

Two rows of Jack-o-lanterns guide cautious guests toward the door of this home. A soccer goal netting is draped halfway over the roof where webs are attached giving one spider a fun way to greet newcomers.

16. Skeleton Greeter

Similar to the 10th porch idea, this one also used a large skeleton but it looks creepier with its hands chained. Poor thing!

17. Witching Hour Halloween Porch

For this porch, black and white Jack-o-Lanterns were stacked on top of each other for an eye-catching twist both day and night. It is also nice that other black and white decors were added to it like the pinwheels.
