Ready for Halloween

Today I'd like to share some photos of my front porch all decked out for Halloween.

 Here's the before photo. It's looking pretty sad out here but I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on pumpkins like we do most years so I started looking at what we already had.
 Here's what it looked like after I pulled out some pieces from my stash and sewed a boo banner.

The pumpkins are all the light up foam ones with faces that we've had for awhile. For the large two, I just tucked the cords into the mouths and turned them around

We bought the bone lights on clearance several years ago but they're still a favorite. I made a burlap BOO banner and attached it to the screen from our old back door.

I found the wicker chair at a sale this summer. The platter came from a sale a couple of years ago and this summer I gave it a coat of chalkboard paint. The sign is something we've had for years and I sewed the pillow case and tied it closed with twine and some orange tulle. I just rolled up an old beach towel for the pillow stuffing. Since our front porch is not covered and I was pretty sure the pillow would get wet at some point, I figured it would be easier to launder the towel "stuffing" rather than actual stuffing. 

 Here it is at night with the lights on. I love Halloween!

Thanks for stopping. I hope you're having a great day.
