Looking for vintage Halloween decor for your front porch? I’ve got several ideas for you, including witchy pinup postcards, a giant spider web and ALL THE MOD CATS.
Of course, mod cats are purrfect any day of the year, but they’re extra magical on Halloween. Let’s give your front porch a vintage Halloween makeover.

Witch Decor for a Vintage Halloween
Start with a witchy wreath. I swapped out my usual retro ad postcard display for witch pinup postcards to give my card wreath a Halloween look.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I ordered these pinup witch postcards. Here’s a photo of the whole collection. Some are more pinup-y than others…
If you don’t have a Sputnik card wreath yet, go make one! It’s fun and easy to create this retro wreath with wood circle cutouts, dowels and alligator clips. Here’s the tutorial.
Mod Cat Doormat (and Pumpkins!)
Several of the vintage witch postcards have cats on them, tying in with the witch and cat theme. But I needed more cats.
And since that STILL wasn’t enough cats, I also carved a mod cat pumpkin, along with a Sputnik pumpkin for mid-century modern flair. See more pumpkin pics and get my free pumpkin carving stencils here.
Vintage Halloween Front Porch
For the finishing touches, layer up the pumpkins, pillows and blankets. I found some extra-large pumpkins, added a few funny looking gourds and displayed a bundle of cornstalks.
I slid my outdoor chairs closer to the door and spruced them up with orange pillows, a kitty pillow and a soft off-white blanket. And the best part: a giant spider web. This affordable find makes a big impact.
Should I add a big spider to the web? Still deciding on that one. Here’s how my vintage Halloween front porch turned out.
