Halloween is my favorite holiday and it’s during my favorite season. Here are some great ways to decorate your home for Halloween with that farmhouse chic look. Check out the list below for some Halloween decor ideas:

Halloween Decor Ideas : Outside Edition

This is where your neighbors, passersby, and trick-or-treaters will get to see how much you are into the Halloween season. These five elements are key for any front porch.

Chrysanthemums, or Mums, are a classic fall flower. They are native to East Asia and northeastern Europe. They come in a large variety of shades from pink and purple to white and red.

Personally, I’ve always been a fan of the deep red, orange, and pink (yellow remind me of dandelions!).

If you are apt to buy your mums early, make sure that most of the buds are still closed up at the time of purchase so you can have blooms throughout the entire fall season. Trust me, it’s worth the wait!

Pumpkins & Gourds

The variety of pumpkins and gourds at this time of year is utterly amazing. There is a color of gourd to match any color of Mum.

Looking for an orange themed porch? Pumpkins! Yellow theme? Crookneck squash! Pink? Moranga squash – aka the pink pumpkin.

Artificial Pumpkins

Not interested in a moldy lump half eaten by squirrels? Looking for something that will last a but longer? Get creative with your pumpkin decorations both inside and out! These porch pumpkins are made from wood, painted and sealed to last you much longer than any traditional pumpkin. Yeah, those are a must, but use these too for a little variety on your steps.

Skinny Black Cats

They may get a bad rap, but Halloween is incomplete without black cats as part of your decorations.

Why do we view these little furballs as suspicious? We can blame the Pilgrims; more specifically the Puritans. As in our friends who lived in Salem and the hosts of the witch trials. The actively persecuted black cats right alongside the men and women suspected of witchcraft.

Add these cute skinny black cats to your front porch.

Black Cat Bums

In addition to the super sweet skinny black cats, your front porch will be even cuter with these black cat bums. The tiny feet are the perfect blend of spooky and adorable. They are a little bit of a different take on your traditional Halloween black cats.

Welcome Boards

Get creative with your fall welcome! Using a welcome board is a great way to mark the change in seasons and the holidays within them.

What better way to say welcome than with a sign featuring a pumpkin in the “O”.

These signs are great because they are made from light pine and are 48″ tall, making them very easy to store in between seasons. It’s one of the fastest and easiest ways to up your porch decor game!
