It’s October again and you know what that means - it’s Halloween. As you get ready to enjoy this night, don’t forget the decorations. Halloween décor can include many things but the goal is often very simple – make it as scary (or funny) and as creative as you can. The best place to start with your Halloween décor is, of course, the front door. After all, you want your guests to get the theme of your party as they step into your home.

To help you out, we have prepared a few front door Halloween décor ideas.

Stick them up carefully on the front door and that’s it.

If you’re looking for something with some creativity and design value then this is the option to go for. You will need a number of cut-out pumpkins. Make sure they come in different sizes too. Use a plant-based archway around the door. Once the archway is in place, start sticking in the pumpkins one by one. Ensure the bigger ones are at the bottom and the smaller ones at the top. See how it was made here.

Your front door sets the mood for Halloween night, so plan accordingly!
