How to Make a Haunted DIY Spooky Forest Porch
Creating a haunted forest porch is so easy. In just a few steps you ca make a cute and spooky porch that will delight everyone who walks by your home!
Create the Spooky Forest Porch
Make DIY Spooky Forest Pots
We had a big wind storm a couple of weeks ago so there were so many big branches all over the ground. You can find trees in your neighborhood for this project. I found four tall branches and took most of the leaves off.
Put Branches in Pots
Put the branches in pots. I had these galvanized containers that were just the right size. To secure the branches, either zip tie them to a railing. If you don’t have a railing, you can put the end of the tree branch in the pot and fill it with rocks to keep it from falling over.
Fill Pots and Cover with Moss
Fill your pots with rocks or even wadded up paper bags. Then put a layer of moss on top to cover up the filling.
I put two branches in pots a the bottom of my porch steps and two branches in pots next to my front door.
Add Cobwebs or Moss to Your Spooky Forest Pots
I added the same moss I used to cover the tops of my pots and glued it to the branches of the trees. I found the moss at Dollar Tree. You can add cobwebs too to make your forest extra spooky.
Attach Crows to Your Halloween Spooky Forest Pots
I ordered two different sized crows to the branches in my spooky forest. I found the Crows on Amazon. I also attached the crows to the corn stalks that I attached at the top of my porch.
Add Additional Halloween Spooky Forest Porch Elements
Other items that I added to my Spooky Forest are fresh pumpkins, my Stacked Pumpkin Topiary and a Skeleton sign!
Make Your Halloween Spooky Forest Porch as Creepy or as Cute as You Want!
I don’t love the scary element of Halloween as much as I love the cute aspects so I kept my spooky forest on the cute side. But you can definitely make your spooky forest creepier by adding more cobwebs, scary creatures and frightening ideas!

You always have the best seasonal decor and ideas. I always look forward to visiting your blog post! Thanks for joining us.
I LOVE your porch Janine. It’s so festive and whimsical!
your front porch is just so lovely, I know probably not the best adjective for a Halloween porch, but I am like you and enjoy the “cute” part of Halloween! And what a great idea to use of the branches from the storm!
Thanks Morgane! I’ve loved Halloween since I was little. So it’s always my favorite to decorate for!
