The first few photos are the decorations I used last year. It was a relief this year to have some items ready to go -- not doing the first year scramble any more!
These decorations on my front porch are new this year:
I got the greatest deal on those "flat" pumpkins! Hopefully they will remain stacked... I was prepared to pay a lot more but Kroger had a super deal on them.
Then I bargain shopped at a local thrift store and found those light up pumpkins (I also got a single one that isn't in the photo).
And then my favorite?? THE LEGS!!
I saw a photo of those online when I did a search for "planter Halloween decorations" and decided I HAD to have them! I looked for mannequin legs on Craig's List and actually found some, but they were geographically undesireable. Then I searched for "inflatable legs" -- which has probably scarred my Google search history for life. In the end I decided to just make them. Then I bought a pair of tights, went to the infamous local thrift store for boots, make some buckles and glued them on the toes... and ... Voila! They just make me giggle. I still plan to get a dollar store witch's hat and lay it askew on the steps (weighted down somehow) as though she lost her hat before she nose-dived into the pot...
What you can't see -- my brick porch column is wrapped in orange lights, and there is a ground spot light that illuminates the ghost in the tree at night.
I'll carve a couple of real jack'o'lanterns when the big night is closer...
Happy Halloween, everyone!
