Witchy Porch

29 09 2008

I had fun getting the Halloween decorations out this weekend! Right now, they are still strung all over my house. I had more fun going through them than actually decorating… I forgot how much stuff I had! 

I did get my front porch nice and witchy though.


Isn’t this wreath adorable? TJ Max people! I added the ribbon which was half off at Hobby Lobby. Gotta love deals:-)


Check out my pumpkin witch!! I love her! I’m sure my kids will rip off the hat, eyes and nose many times. I had to shut them inside while I made this. She might have to go in the garden bird bath, away from toddler temptations.

Inspired by Country Living’s Pumpkin Chic book.


***Don’t forget to start thinking about fun ideas to show at my Halloween Blog Party. It won’t be long until we have those 13 days of frightful fun!!!***


It’s a PARTY:

  • Jen over at Santuary Arts at Home is hosting a Pretty your Pumpkin Party on October 8th!! Head over there and show her your pumpkins and Halloween decorations.
  • Kimba at A Soft Place to Land is having a Halloween Party on October 6th. Join in on the fun!
  • I found my Halloween Soul Mate, Alexa at The Swell Life! She’s a also a graphic designer, unorganized, a Libra, chocaholic and has a black cat. We’re almost twins! ha. I’m excited about her Terrorific Tuesdays and want to spread the news. If you have a fun Halloween project, let her know and she’ll link to it on Tuesdays. Check out her site for more info and some cool crafty ideas.

Aw, that’s so sweet. Thanks. Yes, I love Halloween so much! I actually made a witch pumpkin a couple of years ago. I got the idea out of a BHG mag. It wasn’t very complicted, but I remember my coworker scoffing at it (she was rude). Oh well. Yours looks great! Gotta love the sales at Hobby Lobby!!!

I also enjoyed your design site. I’m going to add you on flickr as well 🙂

Love your WITCHY porch!
I agree with the fun being pulling it all out and seeing it again. I pulled mine all out and it took almost a week to get it all decorated!
Have a great week!
