  • Turn your door or whole entryway into a gaping monster mouth! There are tons of different ideas you can try, but they all look great. Have fun making it with your family!
  • If you have furniture on your front porch, then use that as your decorations! Put skeletons or other Halloween creatures on the furniture to keep your guests warm!
  • Add some sort of illuminated ghost to your front porch to really freak your guests out. You can make it out of cheese cloth, scotch tape, or just a cloth over a pole. Add some light to it to make it look a bit spookier, though.
