How to decorate a porch in just 10 minutes with Halloween decorations
I can’t even count how many times I’ve been asked if I want to decoratively decorate my porch.
It’s been a challenge because it is a natural part of our culture.
My mom and dad both have porch parties and they love it, but the thought of having to do a whole lot of work to create a whole bunch of decorations has been daunting.
We’ve seen it before with kids, too.
They’re always on their feet, running around in their own little world.
I thought that might be the reason why we weren’t as creative as we could have been.
After all, the kids were already there.
But now we’ve gotten them involved and they’re learning and making the decorations.
I’ve tried to share with them that it’s easy to get started, but it takes a lot of planning and patience.
Here are the steps to decorating your porch in less than 10 minutes: Choose a design that is appropriate for your family.
We wanted to include a theme, but you can do anything you want.
Make sure the materials you use are appropriate.
I had to purchase a few things that I had never used before and then spend hours doing it, and they were not very expensive.
We used paper, cloth, paint and foam to create the designs.
Choose a color.
Some of the designs have been decorated with colored plastic wrap, so you can create a festive and colorful pattern.
We did two coats of black paint and one coat of gray paint, but I would suggest starting with the black first.
Paint with a white brush and paint on your favorite colors.
It gives a beautiful effect.
Paint the sides and roof.
I chose to paint the sides with red paint and a white paint to accentuate the white color of the paint.
Paint over the inside.
We chose white spray paint to paint everything on the inside and it looked fantastic.
Paint your porch.
We painted the outside and sides of the porch, and then put a white spray over the whole thing.
This was our favorite part because we didn’t want to paint anything that would be too much of a distraction to our children.
Use a color that looks good on the outside.
We also chose red paint for the porch to give it a little glow and make it more festive.
We had to add some decorations to the porch because the outside of the house was not as covered as the outside was, so we used black spray paint, white paint and some white paint.
Choose the colors and patterns you want for your porch and let the kids decide.
They’ll love it.
Create a lot.
You can create as many designs as you want to create different colors and different patterns.
The more colors and designs you have, the more time it takes to create them.
Let them decide which colors they want to play with and which patterns they want the kids to see.
It really helps the kids.
It keeps the decorations organized.
Kids love having a group of people around them.
It can make a big difference when it comes to their social skills and socialization.
Make your own Halloween decorations.
This DIY project is easy, inexpensive and fun.
