If you’ve read my fall decor posts, you know I’m a Halloween girl.
I love it.
I live for it.
Well, I live for it and cheap beer.
Oh, yea, and Grunt Labor and the kid.

I believe it started early on with my love for ghosts and scary movies. I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time in my life reading about ghosts and witches and such. I’ll blame it on Mrs. Maxwell, my elementary school librarian who read us a story about the Bell Witch.
I’ve been hooked ever since.
It could also be due to staying up late as a nine year old entranced by Freddy Krueger on USA’s Up All Night show with that Gilbert Gottfried guy.
And I fully embrace it.
Let us begin now.
One, two, Freddy’s coming for you…
I didn’t realize how many Halloween decorations I had on my front porch until I started photographing it.
I created a “witch’s grave” with an upcycled tombstone from the Dollar Tree and by sticking her feet upside down in the flower pot.
For the gravestone, I just spray painted it black and stuck gold glittery cardstock, left over from my DIY cheers banner, behind the letters to make them pop.
The “feet” are actually two chair leg covers I purchased at Pier 1 Imports a few years back. They are designed to go around table legs or chair legs to look like a witch is sitting there, but I like them better sticking straight up on my porch.
The “EEK” pumpkin’s scallop design was used with Shape Tape. See how I made it here.
Beside the grave is the witch’s broom and my chevron pumpkin.
Watch out, he may be waiting for you…
A little closer….
The pumpkin was a find at Kirkland’s on clearance after Halloween. That’s when I make a lot of seasonal decorating purchases. You can save tons of money and if you’re like me, when you open up your Halloween stuff the next year, its a big surprise because you forgot about what you bought!
The skeleton is from the Dollar Tree. He came in a wierd greenish glowy shade when I got him, so I gave him a coat of white spray paint to make him more skeleton-y.
I don’t know that there is any room left to decorate on my front door.
I cut out the “BOO” on my Silhouette.
The orange pumpkin garland came from a local store, Chrysalis, a couple years ago. It has a fun vintage feel.
I made the wreath last year from yarn, a skeleton from an old wreath, and other Halloween decor I found at Hobby Lobby.
Here’s hoping the front porch creeps some trick or treaters out this year…
Shall we continue this fright-tastic Halloween tour inside, now?
Like what you see?
