Put a floating witch's hat or a pumpkin topiary on your porch... or Jack Skellington on your front door

To me there are few things more fun than greeting trick-or-treaters at my front door on Halloween night. My "job" when my kids were young was to man the candy station on our front porch while my husband took the kids around to gather their candy treasures.

I absolutely love the parade of kids (old and young) dressed in their Halloween finest, tromping around the neighborhood.

We always decorate our porch to welcome all the trick-or-treaters. If you're looking for ideas to welcome the little goblins and witches this Halloween night, here are 15 frightfully fun front porch decorating ideas for Halloween.
