Halloween is so sneaky. As soon as the rush of Back-to-School ends, it's time to deck the halls for Halloween! It gets all of September and all of October to celebrate it's spooky nature. Poor Christmas.

I love Halloween...can you tell? My husband and I met on Halloween...and I liked it before, but that definitely sealed the deal. I don't love gore and spooks...I scare so easy! But I love costumes, dressing up, decorations and of course, the candy!

Begin by setting the backdrop for the spooky Halloween scene. I used a roll of plastic tablecloth to create a Victorian swag curtain on the front porch. This is key for hiding some surprises on the front porch. Plus, it adds to the spookiness.

From the street it looks decorated simply but perfectly. Cut the bottom of the tablecloths into strips that look ragged.

This year, we are upping our scare game with this scarecrow. He's terrifying! Sure, he looks simple and unassuming...holding a bucket of treats and toys. But he holds a dark secret.

Spooky, right!?


Crows are such ominous birds. Every year around October, flocks of crows settle in my neighborhood. I love them. They have often been thought of as a bad omen, but I love to see them in the 100's!

Use sidewalk chalk to mark safe distances for trick-or-treaters...or just to keep the scarecrow on the porch a surprise for the next guests.

Notice the other creepy dummy on the porch? My husband made him with 2x4's and foam pool noodles. He's life size too and super creepy...he scares me all the time.
