We Sit on Front Porches and Scare Kids Away.

Actually our front porch decor is far from scary. In fact, I would go as far as saying that it's quite friendly and inviting. This is the first year I got to decorate for Halloween, because last year we lived in the Mortuary (for fun, spooky stories of our life living in the Mort visit here.) I have a hard time with Halloween decorations cause I don't want them to be too tacky, so I decided to omit orange completely from my color scheme and use just black, white, and gray. Here is what I came up with.

It's too early to carve pumpkins so I decided to paint them with chalkboard paint and draw on them instead.

I spray painted the other two white, I love white pumpkins!

 I also made the ever so popular triangle banner to string across my front porch. I just cut out triangles from gray fabric and hot glued them to black ribbon.

I even dressed up the wreath with a little black bow! (To learn how to make the coffee filter wreath, click here.)

Now I gotta work on the indoor decor. Happy Halloween!
