DIY Halloween Decorating

I've been decorating the house, inside and out, for Halloween. Thought I would share with you a couple of DIY projects I did.

I wanted a mat for my front door, but did not want to spend the $15 or so they wanted for one at the store, so I made my own! I found this black mat at Target for $3.99:

Some orange spray paint and a pumpkin stencil made out of cardboard later, I had this:

I think I like it even better than the ones I saw at Target! 

Next, I had an old plaque that had gotten faded from the sun and had definitely seen better days:

I spray painted it with a coat of orange, then a bit of black, then another bit of orange

I hot-glued on some Halloween pom poms I found for $1 a package and voila

A new "Boo" Halloween sign!

A few photos of my front porch:

Hope this inspires you to create something yourself!
