Last night I decided to pull out some Halloween decorations for the front door. Every year I do something different depending on my mood. Mostly, I let my hands make the decisions when I go through my boxes. I grab things, pull them out, toss them together and it usually gets my creative juices flowing.
This year I’m continuing with my white fixation. I used some black garland, black tulle and white lights around the door. And my Halloween entrance turned into a magical black and white look.
I made a “Welcome” chalkboard out of a small silver tray and put it on my door instead of my usual wreath.
I sprayed my real pumpkins white and plopped them into two old urns with lime green moss.
Everything got a fresh coat of white paint, including my skeleton parts. I filled a big urn with an old drop cloth, then covered it with some dirt and added my skeleton parts on top. It’s so much easier for me to lug around like that.
I brought my black, shiny tree outside and put it up on a wood barrel.
I hung a Halloween sign made with glitter and stars on it…and it looked so pretty at night.
But here’s a closer look in the daylight. Not quite as magical but you can see the details.
Here’s a photo this morning. It’s our first rain of the year and the sky is gray and overcast but you can still see my urns are old and chipped in the light. And if you were actually here, you could see the real cobwebs in the corner.
Oh well, it adds to the atmosphere, don’t you think?
But I like it better at night. Even with that glaring porch light.
If I get energetic, I might hang some witches hats overheard with fishing wire, along with lights. I think that would be a perfect touch.

In the meantime which front door do you like the best, orange and black
or white and black?
