Front Porch Halloween Decor
So, I seriously do not think I have ever decorated my front door and shown it on my blog.
Especially for Halloween.
I’m not a ghost and goblins kind-of-gal, so I usually skip Halloween.
But this year I decided to give it a whirl and have some fun. I knew the boys would love it because they are always begging me to add lights to the front of our house during the holidays.
Here is what our front door usually looks like. I am dreaming of a new front porch with double wood doors, but that is a loooong way down the road.
To help get me started on my decorating, I added some Outdoor Command light clips to my doorframe.
Command Outdoor adhesive strips are water- and UV-resistant and designed to resist all weather conditions such as rain, snow, and extreme temperatures.
I made sure to clean off the surface before adding the clips.
The instructions are super easy to follow!
Peel off the blue side of the adhesive strip and attach it to the back of the clip…
Next, remove the black side of the adhesive strip and attach the clip to the surface.
Press and hold for 30 seconds…
I waited for over an hour before I added the orange light.
Then I attached the jute string from the burlap bunting right over the lights.
For the wreath on the door, I used a heavy duty Command outdoor hook that can hold up to five pounds.
I followed the same steps as I did with the light clips.
I loved the graphite color of this hook because it is the exact same color as my door.
Now my door is starting to come together!
The wreath and sign are from Hobby Lobby.
The burlap bunting helps to hide the ugly dark green cording on the lights.
I had another sign that I wanted to hang by the door, but didn’t want to nail into my brick, so I used one of the heavy duty Command hooks and applied it to the trim work.
After letting the clip sit for an hour, I just added some jute string to my sign and hung it from the clip.
Now my front porch is starting to show some personality!
I scooted my wicker chair closer to the door and added some pillows and a throw.
This would be a great spot to sit and hand out candy.
For the other side of the door, I moved my black table under the window and added some mums and pumpkins.
I love how easy it is to decorate for fall.
The thing I like most about using Command clips and hooks is that they are damage free, and I can use them over and over again!
With the refill adhesive strips, I can take them down after Halloween and reuse them for end-of-the-year decorating!
I loved seeing Adam and Eli’s expressions when they got off the school bus and saw the door for the first time. They were so excited to see our front porch decorated for Halloween!
And check out what the lights look like at night…
Isn’t that fun?! Eli sure thinks so!
Happy Fall, y’all!

This looks adorable Traci!
Love it, Tracy!
Very pretty Traci. I don’t decorate for Halloween much either, but I love that I can use the pumpkins, mums, etc and they are good thru Thanksgiving.
I love the new look!! I didn’t know there were command light clips… I will be using them this year!!! Thank you for sharing your front porch with us.
Didn’t know 3m command has clips for lights! Yay!
It looks great…like the burlap to hide the cord idea…genius. : )
That is one cute doorway. Not overdone, but just right! I love it!
Your front porch is so cozy and inviting. Too bad I live in TX, I would come over and sit a spell! Unfortunately, I never decorate for the seasons. I don’t have room to keep everything and it gets so stinkin’ hot in our attic that it tends to destroy some of my items (melts glue, that kind of thing). Great job!
Traci, did you make that burlap bunting?
Amazing.. I love the lights on the door So Much..
Your decorations look beautiful. I tried using the same small light clips inside my house to go around a mirror, and when it came time to take them off the adhesive strips broke while pulling and ripped my paint off along with it =[ was very disappointed! hopefully you have better luck come removal time.
Really cute! I was originally thinking the picture was to much, but it totally balances the window on the other side. Just right! Thanks for the info too.
Had to come here from a link on facebook…still no luck on either computer.It started around the time you started posting the adds that look like posts, if that helps.
I love the wreath, the ruffle, the sign, everything!
