Each October 31st, I hand out 500 pieces of Halloween candy. Two hours of constant trick-or-treaters can be a little overwhelming, but my neighborhood has embraced the celebration by going all-in on outdoor Halloween decor to make the night even more fun for the kids. Some homes have classic Jack-o’-Lanterns and pumpkin lights, while others lean into the Halloween inflatables, and—to my own delight—some homes have groups of skeletons scaling their house or climbing in windows.

If you too are delighted by creative Halloween decor—whether you want to be inspired to attempt a spooky scene yourself or just appreciate the effort some people put into decorating, keep scrolling. We’ve gathered some of the most fun Halloween outdoor decorations that are more spooky than scary for the littlest of trick-or-treaters, and included links to shop if you want to recreate the look yourself.


Classic Halloween Front Porches

Add Halloween details to your fall front porch to welcome treat-or-treaters this year. Pose skeletons, spiders or crows among and fall essentials like pumpkins, hay bales, and corn stalks.

Straw Hay Bales

This faux hay bale is made from straw but can be used year after year to display fall decor on your front porch or steps.


Creative Skeleton Scenes

My personal favorite Halloween decor trend over the last few years is using poseable skeletons! Decorating with skeletons can unleash creativity, as shown in these examples with skeletons doing unexpected everyday tasks like watering plants and taking a “hot” yoga class.

For homes with covered porches, floating witch hats are competing with decal bats for the best minimalist Halloween decor—thanks to social media. And we can’t help but love the eerie look they create.

Cute (Not Creepy) Scenes

For the littlest ones this Halloween, choosing an outdoor Halloween display that’s more cute than creepy might be best—like this DIY-scene from It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. Scatter pumpkins and choose your favorite Peanuts character(s) to feature.
