On Halloween, the slightest touch of imagination can transform otherwise ordinary animals – whether noisy crows in the backyard or peaceful garage spiders – into terrifying, hair-raising monsters. Therein lies the appeal of trick-or-treating. Sure, candy is important. But what’s memorable isn’t so much the candy, but the environment in which it’s offered – especially when trick-or-treaters take to the streets and knock on your front door. Outfit your porch or entryway with beastly birds and oversized arachnids, then watch as the costumed creatures flock. Enchant your entire neighborhood with these 2022 Halloween decorations suitable for porches, backyards, sidewalks and driveways.

Halloween Decoration 2022 – Pumpkin Family
Kids will love creating their own family in the form of stacked pumpkins. Gather some natural items for the decorations and for the facial features: Use almonds, carrots, pear berries, pear leaves, pine cones, oak leaves and more for eyes, ears, noses, mouths and hair.
Botanicals with googly eyes
They’re watching you from every corner – these googly eyes bring plants to hilarious life in every nook and cranny. To recreate this goggle-eyed greenery, paint a few pumpkins or avocado pits with white craft paint and glue the “eyeballs” onto wooden stalks. Stick them in the leaves, and they’ll make everyone look twice.
Set up a few tombstones in your yard and let them do the graveyard work on Halloween. To do this, cut gray paper bags to size. When lit with mini lights, they will look eerily similar to real tombstones.
Halloween decoration 2022 – Free floating ghosts
Using the heads of Styrofoam dolls sold in wig stores, you can make free-floating ghosts that can stand on their own – but if you hang them, the fabric may flutter in the wind.
Wriggling snake wreath
Dark, intricate vines are all you see at first glance. A closer look reveals snakes lying in wait, and the whole wreath comes to life in a frightening way. Craft such a wreath with nothing more than a vine wreath, plastic snakes, wire and black paint.
Halloween decoration 2022 – unlucky numbers.
Some homes ooze charm while your home is dripping with blood in October. This gruesome hemoglobin is a minimal but macabre touch and is really just colored hot glue. Squirt the red stuff directly on the edges of your numbers or on the letters of your name and blow on it to speed up the cooling and control the drips. This deterrent tactic also works on mailboxes and mail slots. When November 1 arrives, simply peel off the marks and leave no trace of evil behind.
Owl Night Watch
Owls have long been fearsome and menacing harbingers in folklore. But they can also be seen in a friendly way – as wise creatures who know many strange secrets. Take two bright white pumpkins and carve out the eyes with a knife. The contrast between the white shell and the orange interior of the pumpkin will make them stand out immediately.
Two brooms wired together make a spooky Halloween decoration 2022 for the front door, which is also edged with small broom heads (raffia bundles). Cut the raffia into 5 cm long pieces and gather them into small bundles. Wrap one end of each bundle with tape to secure it in the shape of a broom. For the base of the garland, cut three pieces of 4 cm thick sisal rope.
Two pieces should be just longer than the sides of the door and one just longer than the top. Then attach a “broom” to the end of one of the long ropes with brass wire on a spool and, without cutting the wire, add more brooms until you reach the end. Repeat the process with the other long rope.
Halloween Decoration 2022 – Witch Cauldron
This wicked witch of the holiday conjures up a steaming cauldron using modern tricks. First, gather long, straight branches from your yard to hang your cauldron. Then, cut off the top of a large pumpkin with a serrated knife. Hollow out the inside of the pumpkin and drill three holes equally spaced, about 5 inches below the opening. Support branches in the shape of a teepee and secure with wire at the top. Thread the wire inside the pumpkin, creating an S-hook. Hide the visible wire with sisal rope.
Then cut three different lengths of sisal rope to hang the pumpkin; tie one end of each rope to an eyebolt. Insert the eyebolts through the holes in the pumpkin and secure them with washers and nuts on the inside. Knot the ends of the rope together and hang them from the S-hook. If you want to create a “fire” effect, cover an outdoor lamp (with a yellow or orange bulb) with twigs inside the pumpkin.
