I don't know about you, but I love to display a festive wreath on my front door. Whether it's for a holiday, or for every day, nothing sets the tone for your front porch, quite like door decor. 

Creating this haunted themed wreath was a lot easier than you might think! Let's go through the steps to see for yourself.

First I started with a simple door wreath. I spotted a pretty wreath on clearance and knew it would be perfect to transform into something spooky! I gathered a small skeleton, and a few other supplies that I thought would look good.

I started the transformation process by spray painting the entire wreath with black spray paint. After the wreath was dry, I brought it inside and started my project.

In order to secure the small skeleton onto the wreath, I used black twine around it's neck and pelvic bone to attach it to the wreath. 

After little bones was securely fastened to the wreath, I hot glued a bow on the top center, added a small vintage paper fan, and some paper ravens. 

Sometimes just a few decor pieces in enough to make a big statement. I love how the wreath turned out! It looks so pretty on the door, don't you think?

Next up is a wooden sign! A simple decor piece can be a fun way to display a simple word, such as "Boo"! I took an old piece of wood that my husband had in the garage, gave it a nice coat of black paint, and added the word Boo with white vinyl - so easy!

I used my cutting machine to cut out the letters B, O, O, in white vinyl. I transferred the letters onto a transfer sheet and applied them to the painted piece of wood. 

For a little festive addition, I hot glued a darling ghost garland that I bought online. Once my "Boo" sign was finished, I set it out on the porch!

When your porch decor is looking spooktacular, you need a festive bowl to hold all the candy for those eager trick-or-treaters! Instead of a regular candy bowl to hold my Witch bag variety of mini Chocolates, and the SKITTLES® Candy and STARBURST® Fruit Chews Variety, I wanted something a little different and unique! 

I transformed a mini wheelbarrow into a festive candy holder! It was perfect for holding large amounts of candy, and easy for hands to grab... even the boney ones! 


Here is how I easily transformed a wheelbarrow into a candy-totin' bowl for the trick-or-treaters.
purchased an inexpensive wheelbarrow and spray painted it black.

Once the wheelbarrow was dry, I brought it inside and started to decorate it! I hot glued the same ghost garland as I did on my "Boo" sign. 

So cute, right?! The wheelbarrow has just the right amount of spooky.

Be sure to head to Walmart for all your spooky needs! Don't forget the MARS candy mixes, and anything you might need to create the best Halloween themed porch on the block!
