Our Halloween Front Porch and 25% Off Lulu & Georgia

For the last couple weeks, my kids have been begging me to decorate our home for Halloween. So, this past weekend we got to work and now our house is inundated with creepy rats, crawly spiders and erry bats. The sight does make one’s skin crawl.

For the front door (the most important area to decorate for Halloween!), we kept it fairly simple and started with a chic orange geometric doormat kindly provided by Lulu & Georgia. The orange instantly says Halloween, but can be used year around. A large pumpkin, magnolia wreath and a family of mice were added to the Halloween front porch to greet our guests. The mice were created using this template and black paper. Frightfully simple to do!

Halloween Decor :: Decoupage Pumpkins

decoupage pumpkin for Halloween

This black and white decoupage pumpkin by County Living has me thinking. To create the eye-catching look, they used a faux pumpkin and over 120 photocopied images from Pictoral Webster’s.  It’s a brilliant no carve solution perfect for kids that could be used year after year. I just might have to try it this Halloween!

Happy Decorating!
