Halloween Front Door 2013

 My Front Door is all decorated for Halloween ! I participated in Joann Fabrics #spookyspaces event.  What better for a #spookyspaces craft than my front door. The wreath supplies can all be found at Joann Fabrics !
 I started with a round straw wreath ,( I do not remove the plastic covering) and some black and white stripe decomesh. I made 2 rows of loops , gathering the decomesh about every 6 inches. Pinning with floral pins and hot gluing over the pin for security.I started on the inside of the wreath going all the way around . then made another row of the decomesh loops around the outside.
 Here is the straw wreath with the 2 rows of decomesh.
 I then added black tulle bows.. I just made standard floral bows with 4 loops on each side , and glued them in.
 I took orange Haloween wired ribbon , made 2 loops and glued them together , then glued them in next to the tulle. The purple flowers are actually Christmas floral pics. They are super sparkly and look fabulous in the wreath .. they just kind of look like spooky flowers :)
 I bought the word BOO in wood letters , and used mod podge to attach a book page to each. I put the letter on the book page , traced it, cut it out , then used mod podge to both attach it to the wood and as a finish for the top of the letter. I was going to use those little wooden ghosts , but I couldn't find a place to use them ..
 When the mod podge dried , I used hot glue to outline each letter , then added purple glitter to the hot glue. Since thrifting and silver trays are so popular , I added the BOO bookpage letters to this small silver tray I got at the Goodwill for 79 cents. ( If you don't have a silver tray you could also buy a piece of cutout wood, paint it silver and use that in the center.) I used hot glue to secure them to the tray. I took thin wire and stuck it in the middle of the wreath , 3 rows of it , to secure the tray to .
 When I hang our wreaths I use fishing line to attach it to the storm door.
 I made the decomesh garland last year , I think it looks fantastic with my new wreath ! I will be back this week to share my picket fence sign  Hope I gave you some spooky inspiration !
I love how it all came together ! I think my front porch looks pretty spooktacular !

My little helper :) He is getting so big !

Such Spooktacular fun Priscilla! You always made fab deco mesh wreaths. The kiddies will be flocking to your door! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

You'll be the most popular house on the block Halloween night! So cute and clever.

You mentioned using 2 rolls of mesh, how many yards were on each roll, if you don't mind sharing.

Thank you!

Halloween is one of the best times of the year that allows you to challenge your creativity and style. It gives you the opportunity to revamp your home into something spooky. I like how you decorated your front door! The area looks eerie and fantastic at the same time. Now, I can’t wait to see how you will decorate it for Christmas.

Great display! I guess this year I'll be trying out some DIY styled decorations. The past few years my wife has been putting up the same string of lights and fake spiderwebs that her mom used when she was a kid and it's getting pretty tacky. I think we'll both be a lot more excited to try some DIY decorations!
