Autumn decorations for your exteriors

Autumn is here and Halloween is right around the corner! Whether you’re into decorating with witches and ghosts or simply want a simple autumn decoration to brighten your entryway, we have something for you!  Read on to find out some of our recommendations for autumn decorations for your exteriors.

Perk up your front garden with some witch legs: Looking for a fast and simple Halloween decoration? These witch legs are actually garden stakes which means they’re simple to install and can be set up virtually anywhere. They’re a no-fuss decoration that will give your home a festive look without too much time or effort.


Spiderwebs: Another fun October decoration is adding some spiderwebs around your front entryway to give your home that special haunted feeling that will spook and delight all who visit! This is another Halloween decoration that is very easy and fast to use. Add plastic spiders (or a giant spider) to complete the look and get extra scares! As always, make sure your decorations are properly taken down and disposed of when the time comes.

Pumpkins: What makes for a very fun family activity and a lovely Halloween decoration? Carved pumpkins, of course! Pumpkins are everywhere this time of year—from pumpkin spice lattes to pumpkin pies and everything else in between! Now these orange delights can take centre stage in your garden or outside your doorway. Carve pumpkins and add candles for a great Halloween look, or simply arrange pumpkins outdoors for a fresh autumn look that will look great all season.

Fairy lights: Fairy lights are traditionally seen during the Christmas season, but we think they work great in the garden and entryway anytime of year— especially in autumn when the days are shorter and they can get more time to shine! For Halloween, festive string lights like pumpkins, black cats, or witches hats, look lovely draped around the front door or garden area, and are a great way to welcome trick or treaters! When Halloween is over, transition to regular white fairy lights to give your home a soft glow during the long nights.

A Red or Orange Door: Painting your front door is a relatively quick and easy way to instantly transform the look of your entryway, making it appear much more polished and put together. From trick-or-treaters to family and friends, your home is sure to welcome some special visitors during the holiday season. It’s a great time to rejuvenate your entryway and give your front door a new lease on life.  Our wood paints will give your door beautiful, long lasting protection.

An autumnal wreath: In our opinion, there is a perfect wreath for any season. Wreaths are a great way to dress your door and add that special touch to your exteriors. Autumnal wreaths are usually decorated with colourful leaves, mini pumpkins or gourds, sunflowers, ferns, pine cones, and seasonal florals/greens. These wreaths are a quick and easy way to create maximum impact for your entryway.


A seasonal garland: Much like wreaths, there is a garland out there for every season or occasion, and autumn is no exception. You’ll likely find garlands of coloured leaves and seasonal greens and flowers from your local florist or online. This is a fantastic way to perk up the whole look of your exteriors with colour.
