I’m not really that big on Halloween decorations. I’m more of a “Harvest Party” girl than a “Spooky Party” girl. In the past I may have slightly spookified my mantel decor for Halloween as seen here and here, but I’ve never gone beyond that in the decorations department. My sister-in-law has always thrown a big Halloween party and since we’ve always been at her house on trick-or-treat night, I’ve never felt like I needed/wanted to decorate my front entry. But this year my niece has a volleyball championship game to play on Halloween night……of all nights!………So my sister-in-law’s annual party isn’t happening this year!
SO, I raided the clearance Halloween aisle at Walmart last weekend so I could throw a little something together to greet the trick-or-treaters.
If you can’t tell by our carved pumpkin and painted pumpkins, we’re big fans of The Nightmare before Christmas. That would be Jack the Pumpkin King and his girlfriend Sally.
The witch cauldrons I picked up at Walmart are working as pumpkin stands. I grabbed some big fallen branches from the backyard and spray painted them black then added a few fall leaves to them. They really show up a lot better in person.
I threw this wreath together in about 15 minutes using more clearance aisle items.
Easy and done…….now I just need to buy boatloads of candy to pass out and finish making my girl’s costume (yes, I’m still not done!). Are you ready for Halloween? Do you decorate your front entry for trick-or-treaters?
