I know that for many people, Halloween is about scary monsters (if that’s your thing, check out this horror movie countdown to Halloween). Their houses are all decked out with all sorts of terrifying Halloween decorations.

If you have young kids though (or at least a lot in your neighborhood), you might prefer non-spooky Halloween front porch ideas. These will welcome trick-or-treaters to your door and won’t scare your own kids when they’re trying to get home from school.

Easy Non-Spooky Halloween Front Porch Ideas

Though I like to decorate for the holidays, I don’t like to spend a lot of time doing it. That’s why I love these easy non-spooky Halloween front porch ideas that literally take just minutes to recreate.

Grab the super easy tutorial for this Halloween pumpkin light from Art, Crafts and Family. Front porch, completely transformed and you only need two supplies and a couple of minutes!

Another quick and easy way to create a Halloween-themed front porch is to arrange spiders and/or crows around your front porch. You can skip the spiders if you think they’re too scary for kids. Head over to the Happier Homemaker to find out her secret weapons for keeping the critters from falling over or getting blown away.

One of my very favorite non-Spooky Halloween ideas are these emoji pumpkins. You can grab the complete, easy-to-follow instructions over on Cutefetti.

And what could be more welcoming to trick-or-treaters than a Halloween welcome mat? Even better, it’s a great way to repurpose an old mat.

Speaking of repurposing, these signs made from repurposed shutters do double duty. One side says “Trick or Treat” and the other says “Give Thanks” so you can switch from Halloween to Thanksgiving with a simple rotation. Susan at Organized 31 shares her step-by-step instructions to recreate them.

I also like this “Boo” sign that Vanessa from See Vanessa Craft made from leftover wood she had from other projects. Get the detailed instructions here.

And finally, Living Off Love and Coffee shared this cute DIY Trick or Treat Stump that would be perfect as a sign on your front steps or propped against the base of your mailbox.
