Our Guide to Moody Outdoor Halloween Decor ￼
At Yardzen, we’ll take any excuse to liven up our outdoor spaces with seasonal touches. In particular, there’s always something about fall that makes us turn it up a notch when it comes to dressing up our front entrances.
Whatever you may have – a stoop, a front porch, or just a front door – there’s always room to have a little fun when it comes to Halloween decor. We’re partial to a moody and organic look that draws on all the natural earth tones and textures of autumn and incorporates just enough spook.
Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite outdoor decor for Halloween.
Ceramic Pumpkin Planter
Whether plucked from the patch or a seasonal grocery store display, we love a smattering of real pumpkins and gourds brightening up a front porch. For those whose pumpkins don’t stand a chance against neighborhood squirrels, we’re loving these ceramic pumpkin planters from Terrain. Fill them with fall-favorite mums or a dried arrangement for eye-catching texture.
Dome Top Lantern
These matte black lanterns fit perfectly nestled amongst some pumpkins on your stoop or framing your front door. Fill with candles, fairy lights, or even pumpkin tea lights for a warm glow that will help the costume parade find its way to your door.
Low Chair – Recycled plastic Adirondack chair
This modern take on the classic Adirondack style fits in perfectly on any front porch. A spot for morning tea or coffee, a place to pull on your boots, or the perfect moody black chair for handing out Halloween candy. We also love that this chair is constructed with recycled ocean and landfill-bound plastic, so it will hold up to the weather.
Recycled Wool Throw & Kamala Indoor/Outdoor Pillow
At Yardzen, we’re all-in on social front yards and designing gathering spaces that can be seen (and easily reached) from the curb. Create a warm and inviting seating area by adorning your covered porch furniture with these beautiful recycled wool throws (we’re eyeing the earthy rust tartan and herringbone patterns for fall). Finish off the look with indoor/outdoor pillows in a bold black and white stripe.

Headlands Bell Pendant
One of our favorite pendant lights in any season, the black version of this Serena and Lily classic looks great on a larger covered porch, or above a tall entryway. This handwoven rattan pendant will illuminate your space with natural warmth, drawing in guests and trick or treaters.
Dried Dutch Harvest Wreath
Give your front door the pièce de résistance it deserves. Dress up your door with a beautiful dried wreath like these from Terrain and Williams Sonoma. Not only does a wreath signify an open, welcoming home, but it anchors the rest of your decor – providing a strong focal point from the street.
Night Flowers Iron Wreath
Or if you err on the side of macabre (and year after year use), opt for this floral iron wreath to give your door a bold, black centerpiece.
Plaid Coir Doormat
A small update that will tie everything together, this handsome coir doormat with non-slip backing will fit right in with your Halloween styling. Bonus: the cute plaid pattern will transition just fine into the holiday season.
Halloween Iron Stake
Add these playful iron stakes to your outdoor container plants or dried arrangements on your front porch to finish off your Halloween look.
