Vintage Halloween Decorations
Memorable Ideas for HalloweenVintage Halloween decorations can make any front porch or yard look great for the holiday.
The key to making it remarkable is integrating the right outdoor Halloween decorations to create the effect you desire.
Whether going for an eerie look or fun Halloween appeal, using the features of your porch and yard like columns, steps, railings, trees, and shrubs, easily adds to the overall appeal of your Halloween scene.
Often times, creating a vintage look takes only a few well placed decorations (like in the photo below) along with the right lighting at night.
Special Feature: Kate's Vintage Halloween Front PorchKate from Centsational Girl, decorates her porch with a very whimsical, vintage look.
Her porch looks elegant and soooo fun! What an enchanting porch for trick-or-treaters.
Using pumpkins to create a black cat and witches to cast spells on this spooky night, Kate's porch will give you awesome outdoor Halloween decorating ideas.
Kate's Black Pumpkin Cat Project
Kate used a tall pumpkin for the cat's body and a smaller one (turned upside down) for the head.
You may want to use faux pumpkins as Kate did for this vintage Halloween project. Using black felt, black craft paint, a black boa, and some eyes she created "Whiskers"!
Begin by clipping off the top of the small pumpkin before you begin painting as it will need to be turned upside down to form the cat's face.
For the face, simply cut some ears and whiskers, and hot glue them to the face with the eyes. Then attach the boa tail with hot glue as well.
Kate's Adorable Vintage Witch
We cast a witch's spell on the front porch with some lights, globes, witch hats, and a new focal point – a witch on a broom !
She used two bunches of curly willow to make the broom, fastened the witch and suspended it from the porch ceiling. Kate replaced the witches hair with purple plumes using a glue gun.
She added a couple witches hats to the glazed decorated pumpkins already on her porch. Then she strung Halloween lights around the door.
Enchanting Tea Light Globe
Kate hung two tea light globes in front of her windows and fastened some “moths” attracted to the flames.
Kate's vintage Halloween decorations make her porch the envy of the neighborhood and add a real whimsical look to the holiday.
We really appreciate her sharing some great outdoor Halloween decoration ideas with us.

The Lazybones family, of course!
Although quite popular, Mary and I aren't super fond of blow-up Halloween figures as vintage Halloween decorations. We prefer the more classic, and often times spooky, ones!
Remember the TV soap opera Dark Shadows or the whimsical and spooky show The Adams Family? Now those remind me of vintage Halloween decor.
You can create the same ambiance on your front porch or yard by using vintage Halloween decorations. See the fun video below about making a graveyard!

As these are seasonal items, then may not alwasy be available.
When using spooky Halloween decorations to create an entire scene, make sure you use a sufficient amount of decorative items. You can be quite creative and interject other "like" figures into the scene to reduce costs.
For example, if creating a graveyard scene and you have limited skeleton figures, spread them out and place piled rocks or paint branches black and arrange them in between the skeletal figures.
You can also make or purchase tombstones to intersperse between the figures.

Mary and I really like the Halloween display in the photo above. The grim reaper and ghost on the second floor porch really add a lot of appeal.
The graveyard is simple yet interesting and fun. It would really be neat to see this lit at night.
