1. Dead and Breakfast Inn Halloween Porch
From Giggles Galore
Pile pumpkins on your porch and scatter the stairs to welcome guests to a spooky, yet inviting, “Dead and Breakfast” set-up display.
The black and white netting along the banisters and above the front door is a great addition. Lanterns and black crows fit in perfectly for the fall scene and throw in a few spooky additions to transform it for a perfect Halloween setting.
2. Beautiful Fall Front Porch
From Tater Tots and Jello
With this bright and fun front porch, you can keep your decor up for all of fall instead of just Halloween. The pumpkins and black and orange theming sets a Halloween tone in this cute set-up, but the other pops of color such as the blue and white make sure it’s not too focused on the spooky holiday. This lovely porch references Halloween, but the welcoming entrance works for the autumn season.
3. Painted Pumpkins
From Urbanic Paper via Just Imagine
Stripes, dots and chevron patterns partner with a little paint to completely transform the humble pumpkin. Cinderella would be proud.
While carving pumpkins is fun, the mess after isn’t the best. With these elegant pumpkins, you won’t have to worry about them going bad in a few days. This ensures you’ll have pretty pumpkins to decorate your home all season long.
4. Chalkboard Sign
From Rustic Pig Designs
Here’s a fun shape for a chalkboard sign! This would be a fun sign to decorate for fall, but also for Halloween and trick-or-treating.
You can also see fall pennant banners, a wreath and several fall vignettes for the home. With so many cute ideas, it’ll be hard to narrow down your favorites!
5. Halloween Front Porch Ideas
From Creatively Southern
Create a simple yet inviting front porch display perfect for Halloween with some wood crates, pumpkins and a few decor ideas. With the ever classic orange and black for Halloween, this front porch set-up is spot on for the spooky season. Once Halloween is over, take away the scary things and turn it into a simple fall display. Easy and versatile!
6. Giant Wood Tags
From Jaime Costiglio
Oversized wood tags are a unique alternative for a front door embellishment. I like ’em.
Put your family’s name on them, a festive fall saying, or whatever you’d like for an absolutely adorable door hanger. If you’re looking for something other than the regular ol’ wreath, this is definitely the way to go.
7. Neutral Porch
From Taryn Whiteaker
Grey, white and khaki look especially fresh in this season of darker earth tones. With such simple colors, this front porch is clean and easy on the eyes. This gorgeous porch will be easy to decorate over and over again, not just for fall, but for every season! This unique color scheme is definitely worth a try.
8. Vintage Look Sign
From Ella Claire
Like the look of vintage? See how to paint your own seasonal welcome.
Spend less time looking for the perfect fall decor and just make it yourself! With some simple supplies, you can have the perfect vintage fall decor to match your home in no time.
9. Pumpkin Arrangement
From Three Pixie Lane
Since fall is already considered to be all things pumpkin (hello, pumpkin spice latte!), why not focus on that? I love this arrangement with iconic autumn colors. Especially notice the pumpkin “basket” filled with flowers.
10. Wood Pumpkins
From Infarrantly Creative
These good-looking, reclaimed wood pumpkins will never die and leave a mess! In fact, you can put these out year after year for a classic and cute fall decoration. Learn how to make them here. Your hard work that goes into making these will pay off!
11. Cookie Cutter Pumpkins
From Southern Living
Choose a pumpkin and a cookie cutter and you’re in business. Looks great and it’s easy to do. After all, if you can’t skip carving the pumpkins, you might as well make them beautiful, right? This is the perfect way to get a beautifully lit front porch or walkway with little effort.
12. Junk Jack-O-Lantern
From Organized Clutter
Here’s another unique and simple take on decorating Jack. Find old items around your house that you can put towards the making of some new and unique fall decorations for an easy craft. Once fall is over, simply take the magnetized face off and you get your item back! Super easy for a non-traditional jack-o-lantern.
