Halloween is right around the corner and choosing your costume isn’t the only thing you need to start thinking about this early on in October.
How to decorate your porch is a very important decision to make, so we’ve put together a list of our favourite suggestions to turn your house into the spookiest on the street.
GO FOR NEUTRALS
If you want to keep it classy and stylish this year, why not go for neutral colours and simple plants such as pampas grass? You can go all out with the decorations and still have the decor match your vibe, have a look at the picture above for some inspiration.
FAIRY LIGHTS AREN’T JUST FOR CHRISTMAS
Colourful fairy lights are a fun way to get into the halloween spirit without having to invest too much time or money into decorating your porch. Go for purple, orange and green to create a spooky vibe.
TAKE IT BACK IN TIME
If you have an older-looking house, lean into the history and create a haunted house effect with cobwebs, skeletons and ghouls.
TRICK YOUR TRICK-OR-TREATERS WITH AN ILLUSION
This hanging witch hat idea is a perfect way to create an optical illusion with just paper and string! Make witch hats out of black card (or buy them from a store) and hang them up using invisible string. It will look like there are invisible witches standing on your porch.
WHY NOT TRY… WHATEVER THIS IS
Dolls are pretty scary, but this takes it to a whole new level. If you have lots of dolls lying around why not use them to decorate your yard and make it look like they are dragging a body out of your house like this person did? Or not… this one might be a bit too spooky for us!
TAILOR YOUR DECOR TO YOUR FAVOURITE TV SHOW
This Squid Game halloween prop is scary AND topical… what more could you want?
IF YOU HAVE A YARD…
If you’ve got grass, use props to your advantage. Using fake hands you can make it look like someone is buried in your yard.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
You can never go wrong with pumpkins at Halloween- they’re a classic decoration which never go out of style. Plus, you can bake the middle into a pie for a delicious snack when you’re done carving the pumpkins.
GET SOME LIFE-SIZED PROPS
This one looks like two skeletons are having a chat on your porch. You can also move them everyday elf on the shelf style to confuse the people in your neighbourhood.
COVID-19 THEMED DECOR
What is scarier than a global pandemic? Enough said.
HARVEST THEMED DECOR
You can incorporate harvest into your Halloween decor this year by opting for hay, orange leaves, scarecrows and pumpkins.
