Front Porch

10
Well it’s that time again – The Fall Season! and this is my beautiful Pottery Barn-ish Style Porch – NOT!
Although I would love to stylishly decorate my porch for autumn with fall colors and textures, I just can’t. Instead, I am decorating it fun for my kiddos, even though they are always begging me to decorate super scary.
This is the compromise I came up with…
(actually kiddos had no choice and will like it anyway)
It first started with this old ladder that I purchased from a garage sale this summer for 2 bucks.  I even had to chase down My Love one night as I caught him trying to throw it away because it was “unsafe”  God love him for always looking out for me but I had to explain that we would not be using it to climb on, it was for decorating – DUH!.  Got some weird looks from him but he just went about his own business and moved on.
I originally used it in our church’s VBS as a prop for a safari booth in our Big Jungle Adventure Theme.

This is just a random pic that I included of us in the jungle – because I think it’s cute and it reminds me of VBS and makes me smile  🙂

 

Now back to the old ladder~
I placed it on my front porch and came up with this…

 

Birds from Walmart
Ladder from G~Sale
Plants from Yours Truly
Rat and Ribbon from Dollar Tree
Tombstone from previous years

I then set up a little witch’s cauldron on the other side of the door.  I spray painted an old orange plastic pot that was one of my previous curb finds.  I tweeked and tweeked it until I came up with this…

 

Black Bird from Walmart
Broomsticks from Target
Skull, TrickorTreat, Witch signs from Dollar Tree
Plants from Yours Truly
Black Cauldron – My Curb Alert find
Tombstones from previous years

 

 

So there you have it – our front porch all decorated for Fall Halloween. I am still working on something for the front door after I spray paint one of my Curb Alert finds from Monday.

*Update:  Buttercup keeps rearranging all of the goodies so it’s messed up updated by the hour!  Uggg!  Don’t know where she gets the reorganizing gene from!

Happy October!

  2. Hi,
    Very cute! I have a love of old ladders also. Have two in my garden with climbers growing up. Hubby's request last time I went on a girls get away. "Please don't bring home anymore old windows or ladders". Guess what I brought home, You guessed it, a ladder. Couldn't help it, it was small and a bit unique. I love all of your decor! So fun that the little one got the decorating gene. Now a new follower.
