How to Dress Up Your Front Door For Halloween

Amy Buchanan

Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year! Although I don’t dress up and go out trick or treating like I once did, I love dressing up our home for the holiday for some spooky curb appeal.

The decorating starts at the front door. Do you dare venture onto the porch into our haunted boneyard to claim a Halloween treat?

You’ll have to get past lots of creepy creatures to claim your candy prize….

And before I show you how I transformed our front door into a spooky Halloween scene using skeletons, ghastly creatures and other decor, I should probably show you what the space looked like before, decorated for fall.

A serene scene, yes?

I made the scene more spooky with Hanging Angel Ghost, a Vulture on Perch and the Classic Hanging Skeleton and the Los Muertos Reversible Indoor Outdoor Rio Floor Mat, then layered in lots of other scary details.

I decorated the area above the front door with some white painted branches and Spider Web String Lights.

I added spider webbing to the door glass and dressed up a black wreath with another mini lantern, Ivory Paper Roses and Black Daisy Stems with Skulls.
