2 Front Porch Guards

Scarecrows are synonymous with farms and fields. They are also a staple of front porches everywhere during Halloween.

You can easily create a scarecrow on the cheap. Buy some pillow stuffing or use leaves from the yard, and stuff them into some of your old clothes around the house. Plop your new scarecrow in a lawn chair on the front step and you’ve got the perfect guard at the front door to greet trick-or-treaters. Create a few scarecrows to draw more attention to your house. Even though it’s a bit messy decoration, especially if you use straw instead of leaves, but who cares about the mess? Halloween is all about fun, not order.
