Happy Halloween! I am a bit behind so I am combining Halloween Decor posts 3 & 4 into 1 post…Outside and Other Spaces.
This year the Crawling Eye is attacking our front porch again, with a few changes. I added the blow-up eyes I had around the yard last year around the eye like “babies”, added a black backdrop (heavy black plastic sheeting with white string lights poked through to resemble stars), 2 wierdo “planets” (a neighbor’s science project they were throwing out that I sprayed with florescent paint), and a new color-changing water-type light that makes it all oh so spooky at night.
We did the rest of the yard and porch a bit more refined this year…
We changed things up just a bit in the front yard this year for our favorite holiday, Halloween! Inspired by my new “Crawling Eye” prop (see the DIY here) we went with creepy eyes. I found some blow-up eyes online for about $3 each and put them in the plant pots and on the porch on top of our old fake fall leaves and orange lights. I also made the silly big-eyed monsters in the upper windows from black poster board and colored tissue paper. (Inspired by these amazing monsters: http://fashionnaction.blogspot.com/2011/10/googly-monster-house-halloween.html ) The eyes on the porch wall were left-overs from a party years ago (just eyeballs printed out on gloss paper from google images) I only spent about $40 for this year’s update, everything else (black fabric, fake pumpkins, black lights) are all things we’ve had for years, just moved around. Enjoy!
