I always get excited when it is time to decoration for Halloween. DIY outdoor Halloween decorations are my favorite. A decked out porch for when the trick or treater's come is a must around here. This year I am so going to have floating witch hats.
I decorated my porch in 2 phases. First I started out with with the swing area. Bats are a great budget friendly way to make a big impact on a front porch. I wanted to add something fun to the bats this year.
My cricut is so handy for projects like this. I used it to cut out bats for a fun sign. I wanted it to feel like the bats where coming out of the sign! This is such an easy DIY outdoor Halloween decoration ideas
To make this sign I used ½" plywood and painted it white. Next, I framed it in with pine which I painted black. Then I cut out black bats out of vinyl and cardstock. I used the vinyl bats on the sign and the cardstock bats to put on the house.
Hanging bats tip: use blue painters tape to hang them. You can also buy plastic bats on Amazon here.
Other DIY Outdoor Halloween Decorations
- Frankie, our 5 ft skeleton always has to make his debut for halloween. The swing was the perfect spot for him.
- Don't forget fake webs I string these webs through my trees, my light fixtures and any other corner I can find.
- Giant spiders add a creepy flair. I love to have them crawling up the wall or hanging off of a light fixture.
Floating Witch Hats
These hats are such a fun way to really add halloween to a space. I just used inexpensive witch hats, fishing line and sticking hooks. I spaced them at random heights along my porch. They are the cherry on top for my DIY outdoor halloween decorations.
