You may already know, I'm currently on a year's leave from work to recover from burnout and be creative.  It's been truly wonderful! I've got the time and energy to create - which is what feeds my soul.

But this leave is upaid.  This creative energy needs to be directed in really cheap directions.  So when a holiday approaches, my craft ideas for decorating must be affordable.

That's what this list is all about - creative and affordable Halloween decor for your front door and porch.  It's a great area to decorate to welcome the trick-or-treaters and have a little fun.

But a caveat: nothing on this list is especially scary - think Casper, not Freddy Krueger. Because while the really ghoulish stuff looks like a blast for the grownups to decorate - I prefer a lighter touch. I want to make small children feel welcome - not pee their pants.

I blame a neighbour on my street growing up for my scaredy-pants approach.

When I was about 8, my friends and I timidly approached a spookily decorated house - complete with a scarecrow in a creepy mask sitting on a chair on the porch.  It was a bit freaky, but I wasn't overly bothered.

But, the worst was yet to come.  "RAHHHH!" suddenly the scarecrow stood up and chased us to the door. It wasn't a stuffed dummy after all!  It was just a human dummy who scared me so much I was done for the night - my Halloween cut short.  I'm sure the guy thought it was in good fun - but it wasn't for me.

I want a fun and approachable front porch.  This roundup is a collection of just that - fun and friendly craft ideas to decorate your front door and porch for Halloween.  Now I just need to decide which one to do first....
