Spooky Halloween Porch Tour
Remember last week and the week before that and the week before that… when I was obsessing over Halloween? Yeah that… so I’m done. Finished. Complete. I can’t show you EVERYthing from my Halloween decorations, but… I am SUPER excited to have fired up my smoke machine to be sharing these twilight pics. I’m joining pals who have equally spooky posts so yay for all things Halloween- head over to see their decor next!
Our Halloween porch has two spaces. The first is this corner occupied by a skeletal fortune teller. She wasn’t always a fortune teller, but then I saw a sparkly dress and got the idea to make a glitzy hat out of a shirt from my friend Rachael.
The crystal ball is a bowling ball I grabbed at Goodwill and then painted with my favorite combo of mod podge and micro glitter. Next to the crystal ball are a pair of candles- you can’t see all that clearly, but I gave them a little makeover by wrapping a dollar store doily around them and then spray painting them black… the lace pattern acts as a stencil and they look a little more interesting!
I picked up an ornate Martha Stewart cardboard chandelier for 50% off at Michaels and hung it over the fortune teller’s table. Behind her are two plain mirrors that I spray painted black and stuck some vinyl decals on.
Moving over to the second ‘scene’ on the porch… I propped up this planter I made last spring and stuck some Irish moss and other creepy crawlies in it.
The trunk was from Goodwill and is home to those skeletons wrapped in a heavy chain I bought at the flea market. Apparently I got a good price for the chain, so who knew I had an eye for that?!
Those eyeballs are a favorite from Grandin Road and are scattered throughout the decor out here. I hung another chandelier over the trunk just to bring the eye up, but I’m pretty sure it’s not pictured in a single photograph. Trust me… it was a genius design move. 😉
Thanks to my pals for being part of this fun twilight tour! Let the stealing of candy from my kids commence! Go check out everyone else’s spooky tours!
