It seems I’ve been decorating my front porch for fall forever. But today, I’m declaring myself officially finished.
All the fall and spooky elements are in place. I’m done, but for watering the mums when they get thirsty.
I love the adorable vintage child’s wheelbarrow at the base of the steps. It’s filled with pumpkins, fall leaves and handpainted Halloween Rocks!
An orange and black burlap rag wreath hangs on the door. It’s adorned with a birdhouse decked out for Halloween and wooden letters that spell out Eek. Probably because of all those creeping spiders on that ribbon.
I’m sure some of my neighbors think I’ve gone crazy and put up my Christmas decorations two months early. Hope they don’t call the homeowners’ association and report me for premature decoration. If they do, I have a defense.
That’s not a Christmas tree but a spooky black Halloween tree decorated with pumpkins, ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, witches, spiders, skulls, crows and other terrifying ornaments.
We also offer free broom rides, but as you can see, the witch is off her rocker and off on her broom at the moment.
So why don’t you just sit for a spell in this rustic handpainted black chair.
From that vantage, you can take a look at the rest of the porch. But be careful of black cats (they’re chalkboards!) and creepy crawly glowing spiders. Those are either some cool lights or some radioactive spiders from Spider-Man.
I have a big porch, so it’s big enough for three wreaths.
My favorite is the ‘Til Death Do Us Part Wreath.
Gotta love those hanging glittered skeletons and that embroidered ribbon.
In fact, I loved it so much I used it on the orange polymesh wreath hanging on the porch wall.
Those pillows you see are made from stenciled drop cloths.
I can’t take credit for them. I bought them last year from Chapman Place on etsy, but these are so do-it-yourself-able. She uses painter’s drop cloths and Krylon glitter blast spray paint. In fact, this etsy seller has lots of tutorials on her blog, including one for an adorable Frankenstein pillow.
I hope you enjoyed your visit to my front porch. It’s getting close to the witching hour, so I have work to do.
