- Light luminaries along the walkway to the front door on Halloween night for a spooky glow.
- Place decorative tombstones in the front yard, piling fresh dirt in front of the tombstone so it looks like a fresh grave.
- Hang a colorful, fall-themed wreath on the front door or create one with store bought leaves, colorful ribbon and Halloween-themed Hershey’s Kisses Brand Milk Chocolates. Adhere the festive materials with a hot glue gun to a foam or twig wreath to make a custom front door adornment.
