In less than ten minutes, transform your outdoor Fall space into an easy and spooky Halloween porch that’s perfect for welcoming little spooks and goblins!
I am beyond thrilled to be joining in on this Halloween blog hop hosted by Ella Claire Inspired today! If you are here for the first time, welcome! I’m Jordan, the gal behind A Blue Nest – a lover of decor, a total history nerd and a Harry Potter junky for life. My family and I just moved into our brand new, builder grade home (in a brand new city, nonetheless!) after losing our previous home in a house fire this past January. Starting over has been daunting, stressful, and yet a total blessing. You can read more about the fire and our journey here.
Our new home is in a small neighborhood that is absolutely chock full of families with little kids. To say that I am so excited for Halloween would be a vast understatement! I decided to keep the focus of our Halloween decor outside so that it would be the most impactful for trick-or-treaters.
With two small kiddos and no decor stock to pull from, sweet and simple have been my go to for decorating this year. Our Halloween porch was no different. For under forty dollars and in less than ten minutes, I transformed our traditional Fall porch into an easy and spooky Halloween space!

What you’ll need:
Try to arrange your skeletons in a normal scene that you would see on someone’s front porch. I placed the human skeleton in one of our chairs with his (My skeleton is a he, by the way. I also feel like he needs a name. Thoughts?!) hand up in a wave.
“Hey there, neighbor!”
Binx, the cat skeleton, is perched on one of our pumpkins like the dutiful, guard cat he is.
For the rest of the porch, I simply used one bag of spider webbing and basically covered everything that wasn’t moving.
Then, I placed the Dollar Tree spiders in a few random spots and called it done!
Overall, I wanted it to look like a normal Fall porch, but one that belongs to a not-so-normal family. Think the Munsters or Addams family, if you will. You could even leave out the skeletons, if you wanted to keep things even cheaper, but I think they are the real showstoppers of our Halloween porch.
This whole Halloween look took me about ten minutes, and its also a great project to get the whole family involved with. Ava loved helping with the spider webbing and posing Mr. Skeleton!
Quick, easy, and spooooooooky?! Check, check and check.
