Easy Halloween Porch Decor

Tracking Pixel
One of my favorite things to do for each season or holiday is to decorate my porch! I decided to do something new on my porch at the 1905 cottage: I decided to try a bat theme! I got out my chevron bat wreath and my Halloween countdown calendar (with bats!). And then I added some new elements! So, when Command Brand sent me to the new Command Outdoor products, I couldn’t wait to try them out. I was excited to use them on my fall/Halloween Porch!

I used a mix of pumpkins, plants, decor, bats I cut out using my Cricut Explore, and more!

I used the Command Outdoor large hooks  to hold up this lightweight basket planter — with kale and a few mini pumpkins! You can easily make a similar planter. I found kale at the local home improvement store — after some searching — and just grabbed the mini pumpkins from the grocery store. Plus, you can eat the kale!

I added lights and a wreath to the window:

DIY Spiderweb Dreamcatcher

Hi guys! It’s Holly from My Sister’s Suitcase and today I’m sharing a simple Halloween decoration that you can make in less than 10 minutes! And the best part?? The entire project cost me less than $5! A few weeks ago, I saw these super cute DIY dreamcatchers on instagram. Since then, I’ve been thinking about making my own version of a dreamcatcher, Halloween style….

Each month, FloraCraft has sent me a lovely box of foam and craft goodies (and thanks to them for sponsoring the post!).  Inspired by last year’s NOEL letters, I decided to make a Halloween marquee — but do it in an even easier way! You can do this, too — in less than two hours!

Halloween Wreath & Free Printables!

I’m having such a great time decorating for Halloween this year!

I wanted to do something a little different with this wreath. So as I was browsing Shutterfly, I found the metal ornaments — they’re lightweight, printed on metal, and have a pretty glossy finish. (I printed the same image on both sides.) You can do something similar.

I’ll share the free printables below, but first, notice that I chose the printables to complement the raven (“nevermore”) and 31 printables I shared on Monday. And the “enter if you dare” goes with even more printables I’ll share with you soon! You might want to print these on Shutterfly ornaments, but you can print them any way you want as long as they’re fairly small (the images aren’t scaled for large printing). They’re square, so you could print them and trim or die-cut them into circles, too! Here’s what I did:
