Decorating Your Front Entrance for Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner, but it’s not too late to do some last-minute Halloween decorations to make your home stand out for this spooky holiday. Halloween night is full of trick or treaters, so decorating your front entrance is a must!

4 Ways You Can Prep Your Front Entrance for Halloween

Are you interested in spookifying your front entrance for Halloween? Are you searching for the best Halloween decoration ideas? Here are four ways that you can spruce up your front entrance for the spooky season.

1. Give Your Front Door Some Halloween Flair

Your front entrance is one of the most important places to set up your Halloween décor, and there are many ways you can go about it! When decorating your front door, consider using Halloween decorations like:

  • Halloween wreaths and door hangers
  • Fake spider webs
  • Bats and spider props
  • Door stick-ons
  • Jack-o-lanterns
  • Spooky lighting
  • Cauldron, skulls, or other props

2. Give Your Walkway a Spooky Look


Walkway Halloween décor can add to the atmosphere of your front entrance and light a path for kids and parents. Most superstores and online retail giants have a variety of lights and props that can give your walkway a unique and spooky look. Additionally, you can line walkways with archways, tombstones, or animatronics to set a scene.

3. Don’t Forget to Decorate Your Front Yard

Use your front yard to add to the overall look of your entrance and walkway. You can consider props and décor options like:

  • Animatronics
  • Halloween inflatables
  • Lights
  • Fog machines
  • Tombstones
  • Pumpkins

4. Ghosts in the Trees

If you want a really unique Halloween décor idea, try setting up ghosts in your front yard’s trees. Of course, you can commonly find premade hanging ghosts at Halloween stores, but why not make your own? Some of the best ghost designs we’ve seen are made from chicken wire or similar materials. Done correctly, these ghosts really stand out, even in the daylight. In addition, the chicken wire makes them transparent, which is sure to cause trick-or-treaters and parents to do a double-take.

The Bottom Line

A big part of Halloween is getting the opportunity to spread joy to neighborhood kids while enjoying the many costumes you’re likely to see. Sprucing up your front entrance with unique Halloween décor will help you and the kids that stop by make lasting memories.

Of course, improving the look of your front entrance and improving your front yard landscape doesn’t have to stop at Halloween. Making improvements to your front entrance can increase the value of your home and, with the right design, help you decorate your outdoor space all year long.
