The Birds Have Invaded for Halloween!

I don’t know if you saw the creepy crows wreath I made a couple of weeks ago, but now it is time for it to take its place of honor on the front door with all of the other creepy bird friends invited for Halloween.  Since this is the first time I have had a front porch like this, I was excited to decorate for the holiday.  I don’t know why I’m obsessed with birds right now, but it seems to be the case.

Welcome to my Halloween Home

I bought quite a number of black crows at the Dollar Tree last Halloween and I ordered another box of 24 for them for this year to decorate my front porch.  I wanted the little “monsters” to be warned, so I found this sign and had my dear friend, Tricia, change the “monsters” to “birds”.  Several yards of black tulle were draped on the railings.

Beware of the Birds

I was so very fortunate to have a branch fall from a neighbor’s tree right before I began my decorating and decided it would be a perfect perch for my birds.

A bevy of birds has arrived on this branch.

My “tree” was so easy to anchor in a heavy crock.  I didn’t even have to scatter the leaves for atmosphere, they were happy to fall and blow around all by themselves.

The Birds Invade

This was a great branch from a sycamore tree, I think the little dried pods add to the creepy feel.

Creepy Rats greet guest for Halloween

The birds have let a few of their rat friends come to join the party!  These guys also came from the Dollar Tree.  I mostly kept them away from the birds and had them staged on one side of the front steps.

Birds and pumpkins welcome you to my Halloween house.

The opposite side of the front steps holds orange and black pumpkins with birds  perched on and around them.

Bats and Birds for HalloweenSome cardstock bats swarm above an old wicker chair draped in sheer gray fabric and perched upon by birds and rats.

Here is what it looks like at dusk! I lined the steps with orange glowing tea lights to guide the way.

Beware the birds should you come trick or treating at Chloe’s house this year!

I hope you enjoyed my Halloween front porch decoration for this year. How will you be welcoming your trick-or-treaters?

  1. Love this! I have a large contorted branch and after seeing what you did, I think I will put some of those crows on it as well. Thanks for this amazing post. Are you not having a line party today as I was going to post something/ Valerie

  2. Love this! I am stealing some of these ideas. We don’t get any trick or treaters and we stopped having our annual party when my son got older, but we still decorate up a storm! Thanks for the ideas!!

  3. I love all of the creepy crows and rats. Those are two of my favorite things to decorate with around this time of year. Thanks for sharing at The Creative Circle. Hope to see you this week!!
