Outdoor Halloween Decor: Witch Decorations
These fun witch decorating ideas will cast a spell on your home—both inside and out—this Halloween. We have over 15 creative ideas for spooky Halloween witch decorations.

Bewitching Centerpiece

Whether you're hosting a Halloween party or whipping up sweet fall treats for the family, add festive fun with this witch hat decoration. Simply place a witch's hat on a pumpkin, and voila! Easiest table decoration ever.

Editor's Tip: Stuff the hat with tissue paper, pillow stuffing, or newspaper so the hat doesn't flop over or blow away.

Witchy Door Display

Witch door decorations that are stylish, not scary, are difficult to come by. Luckily, we have the perfect solution. This adorable door decoration stuffs festive fall mums in a witch-hat-shape container. To get the look, halve a papier-mache witch hat, then trace the cone part of the hat onto cardboard. Cut out, fold, and hot-glue onto the halved hat. Paint all pieces with orange paint. Once dry, place a piece of florists foam in the hat's opening. Fill with silk flowers.

Spooky Silhouettes

For easy witch decor, craft DIY portrait silhouettes. Take profile photographs of your family members, enlarge them to desired size, and print out. Cut out silhouettes. Then attach printed and enlarged costume-accessory patterns to portraits. Tape pieces together, then trace onto black cardstock. Cut out, then attach silhouettes to colorful pieces of cardstock (we used hues of orange and yellow) and frame as desired.

Witch and Bat Silhouettes Mantel

Create a fun focal point for your Halloween mantel with this witch broom decor. Get our silhouette print, and have a copy shop enlarge and print the image to the desired size. Cut out the flying witch decoration, and trace onto black poster board or construction paper with chalk; cut out. Cut out the bat images and repeat the same process. Hang the witch and bat cutouts on the wall over your mantel using repositionable mounting putty.

Witch Stockings Fireplace Decoration

Make it appear that an unlucky witch has gotten stuck in your chimney with this wickedly fun fireplace decoration. Give striped socks an aged look by dipping them in a plastic tub filled with black tea; wring out and let dry. Cut black felt into squares for patches; sew patches onto the socks. Stuff the socks with fiberfill, and insert them into black shoes from a witch costume. Using a tapestry needle and embroidery thread, sew the shoes to the socks, stitching along the entire edge of the shoe. Duct-tape the socks to the inside of the firebox so the legs dangle down, or tie each sock to a tension rod and install it in the firebox.

Witch Hat Check Stand

Set up a stand for witches to check their hats as a bewitching Halloween party decoration. Download the hat check sign and claim-check tags, print onto cream cardstock, and cut out. Place the sign in a 5x7-inch black frame. Punch holes in claim-check tags, and attach them to witch hat brims using safety pins. Display the sign and tagged hats in your entryway on an old metal gate, freestanding coat rack, staircase, or closet door (use removable adhesive hooks).

Witch Legs Halloween Urn

This witch made a crash landing on your front porch! To make the witch legs decoration, dress bendable mannequin legs in striped stockings and buckled shoes. Place the legs upside down in a tall urn filled with moss.

Witch Silhouette Drink Bottles

Give plain glass jars and bottles a wicked-cool update for Halloween with these witch silhouettes. Print our witch patterns, available below, onto white paper, enlarging or reducing as needed to fit your drink bottles or glasses; cut out to use as templates. Trace around the templates onto black self-sticking shelf liner; cut out. Peel off the paper backing, and adhere the silhouettes to your drink bottles.

Editor's Tip: Our patterns are free, so print as many as you like and use them to embellish other items, such as vases or decorative plates.

Topsy-Turvy Witch Cupcake Toppers

Add our pointy witch legs decorations to Halloween cupcakes for some party fun. Download our witch shoe pattern and print onto cream cardstock; cut out. Using white chalk, trace the shoe patterns onto black cardstock; cut out. Cut striped straws into 2-1/4-inch lengths. Cut a tiny slit in each straw, and insert the shoe cutouts into the slits, making a pair of witch legs for each cupcake.

Witch Parking Porch Decoration

Give witches a place to park their brooms on Halloween with this designated witch door decoration. Embellish a plain doormat with large adhesive letters, and fill a galvanized bucket with a few brooms. Wrap orange and black tape around the handles to give the brooms a wicked accent.

Outdoor Halloween Witch Silhouette

Create a life-size outdoor witch statue stirring a concoction in her cauldron that is sure to freak out the neighbors. Our Halloween witch is simple to make and will provide spooky scares all season long.

Witch Lane Street Sign

With a street name like this, you know exactly who takes up residence here. Place this sign on your front porch this Halloween as a seasonal change of address.

Wicked Witch Candy Containers

Witch Halloween decorations can be sweet, especially when they are crafted as candy containers. Make the black cat candy container to sit alongside the green-face witch.

Spellbinding Soup Decoration

Making this cauldron bubble takes very little toil and trouble. This witch's brew starts with spray-foam insulation. Once the insulation is dry, paint it green. Kids will have fun embellishing it with rubber toads, lizards, and other creepy-crawlies.

Witch in Storage

Add a little humor to your front porch with a witch who's packed up and ready for a vacation. Get the look with a pair of stuffed boots peeking from one suitcase and two outlandish green gloves dangling from a second travel bag stacked on top.

Witch Silhouette Lampshade

If you're afraid of the dark, turning on this lamp might make matters worse. These bat and witch silhouettes will cast eerie shadows around the room when the lamp is aglow. To craft this creepy decoration, download our free patterns, trace onto black cardstock, and cut out. Adhere to the inside of a paper lampshade with double-stick tape.

Editor's Tip: Use a low-watt bulb (60 watts) in the lamp so the paper silhouettes do not get hot. When the silhouettes are in place, do not leave the lamp on for long periods of time.

Welcome trick-or-treaters with a spooky Halloween home that's decorated with easy outdoor crafts. See how!
