Yikes, today is Halloween, and its my last chance to show you my spooky porch decor ...
One big change is that I painted my front door black! Eventually all the trim on our house will be black. I love the contrast! I told a friend that its obvious that I love Halloween, because I plan to live in an orange and black house full time!!
Since the look of the rest of the porch is so simple, and so not fru fru, I tried to think of a door decoration that would be unpretentious, but fun.
With that in mind I made this simple wreath out of dollar store skeletons ... I used a hanger wire to hold them in the round form, and wired the skeletons wrists to ankles, then around the hanger wire.
When I was forming it, I felt a little cruel, and had to remind myself they are plastic ... and after all they just kept smiling! ;-)
The pumpkins in the birdcage is a hold over from years past, though I did paint the rusty bird cage black for a starker contrast.
I am still loving my stacked painted bench/stools ... and the new black gingham chair pads. I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween!
