When I was younger,  I knew that when my Grams covered her porch light with the big, plastic, vintage Santa face,  that  the Christmas season had officially begun!  🙂  Today,  you can create that same excitement for almost any holiday season, especially Halloween!  Below are some ghoulish ways that I have found to announce that the spooky season has come to your house.  Check out these lawn, walk-way, and front door Halloween decorating tips to share with your neighbors, friends, and family!    




Halloween Inflatables

If  you’re not crafty, but you would still like to make a statement, then go big in your neighborhood with these cool Halloween inflatables.  I love the expression on this Black Cat’s face, because he’s ready to pounce at any moment, and the Halloween Camper below is super fun & not too scary.  





And if you really want the WOW,  check out this Haunted Tunnel !  It’s a little pricey, but you can get $10 off on a $45 or more and free shipping over $50 at Halloween Express!

I actually want the little ones to come to my door, so I try not to make it too scary for them to get a treat!  🙂  Here’s some cool Halloween door decor ideas.

What I like about these Monster Doors is that you can use bright, colorful, materials and when see them when you turn on the porch lights!   Click on the pics for the step-by-step instructions on how these doors were created.

Here is a video on how to make a Pumpkin Porch Light!  It’s so simple, inexpensive,  and fun craft to do with kids of all ages.   I have seen these plastic pumpkins go for .25 cents in the thrift stores, plus they come in all kinds of bright colors.   You could dress it up with some spray glitter, clothes & hats, or use a Pumpkin Foam Decorating Kit like this one below.   





Boo-T-Ful Walkways

I love when I see illuminated Halloween walkways that lead trick-o-treaters to the door.
