Halloween Front Porch

So there's one last stop on my Halloween tour - our front porch. The boys, hubby, and I had a lot of fun putting this all together.

I incorporated lots of garage sales finds I'd been picking up over the fall months, including a $1 ladder, an old chair, a little step stool, and a couple of crates and baskets.

Hubby attached 2 cut boards to the ladder to create a couple of shelves for me, which worked great. We picked up the pumpkins and the corn stalks on our trip to the pumpkin patch.

Just for a little more fun, I made these little spider web vinyl window decals with my Silhouette.


The web is called Spider Web Flourish (spider_web_flourish_1818) and the spider is from the set called Echo Park Halloween Shapes (echo_park_halloween_shapes_C00245_48353). Just cut it out in black vinyl and put them up - very easy.

The long strand for the top left spider I just cut free-hand.

Our new house is wired really well for outdoor lights, so everything plugs into 2 outdoor outlets and then is run off a switch inside the house. Love it! (In our old house, I had to put on boots and a coat to run outside and turn on the lights during the snowy months - so glad I won't have to do that!) Our spooky front porch looks great at night.

I especially love the spider lights I have peeking out of our rose bush.

And the little spider webs on the front windows are very nice. They might be my favorite part.

We are ready for Halloween! On the docket today, pumpkin carving, iced pumpkin cookies, and a trip to the Lincoln Zoo for a trick-or-treating. My favorite time of year.


  1. It looks great! I love the ladder shelf! Hope you have a great day!

  2. How fun!! Ladders and ladder shelves are fun too.

  3. Thanks ladies! I'm kind of sad to take it all down now...
