Kimn at Reinvented
designed and created this stunning decoration for her porch. I love the contrast between the pumpkin colors and the black and white polka dots just really adds a fresh look to traditional orange/black Halloween colors. The faux pumpkins/gourds came from Michaels. I think you can find them at Hobby Lobby too. Watch for the sales! Click on the photo to go to Reinvented

These are Halloween Porch Signs that you can purchase from Country Expressions
. Just click on the photo to go to their site. Again the white pumpkins/gourds. These signs could be made if you're handy with a saw and can do some lettering. Actually, you could make them out of cardboard, heavy poster or foam board and vinyl lettering or free hand lettering. Now, I can't do free hand lettering....but find some ghoulish Halloween font, print the letters words or cardstock and color them in. I can color))) There are SO many projects I'd like to try.....how can one find the time to do it all!

created this gorgeous stack of pumpkins. Again....black and white polka dots.....I think we're on to something here! Love the Spanish moss used for filler at the base of the pumpkin.....adds a ghostly look. Visit her blog to see more photos of this creation and how to instructions.
Pumpkin Man! This photo is from Better Homes and Gardens. Kids would love this sitting on the porch! What a nice way to greet trick or treaters. The instructions are: Start with three pumpkins in graduating sizes. Drill a hole through the center bottom of each pumpkin. Feed the drilled pumpkins onto a thick dowel. Poke stick arms into the sides of the middle pumpkin and drape a scarf of fall garland around base of the top pumpkin. Draw a jack-o'-lantern face onto the top pumpkin and crown with a dapper black chapeau.
It won't be long until time to get your porch ready.......because you never know what kind of scary creatures will turn up at your door!
