Take advantage of existing exterior details. My sister, who lives in balmy South Georgia, has a vivid green front door which pops against her stucco and brick home. We decided that we would take advantage of the seasonal green and create some low cost details from craft foam and Elmers foam core.
We added a simple spider with some orange wiggle eyes and pipe cleaner legs.
We coordinated the rocking chairs by temporarily stapling black canvas to the front and velcro'd on some canvas bat motifs. After Halloween, she can remove the bats and use the orange pillows in other decorating.
Spotlights placed on fun and friendly ghosts made from foam core make them the true stars of this display. Them and the sweet hanging bats, also made from foam core. I simply drew a simple pattern, traced it on the foam core and cut it out with an xacto knife. Then I painted them black and glued a pair of wiggle eyes on the front and back of them with Aleenes Liquid Fusion.
Here's a look at the entire display, curb-side...
