I almost got some of those! I think I'm going to go back and get them. A few years back, we had all of these "candy" eyeballs that had gone stale (but they were sealed in plastic) so we made an "eyeball tree" - I want to do that again!

Finally got time to decorate a little! This is my front porch and door. I am not done, but it's a start!

I am going to have some "floating" (fake) tealights on the walls (stuck up with command stuff) and spider webs as well. I will also have purple lights around the door.

The door sign and garland are from Dollar Tree
The "swag" fabric is printed with skulls and I got it from Wal-greens on clearance (96 cents!)

the small haunted portraits are from Dollar Tree
the bigger ones I bought on clearance last year at ShopKo and Walmart

I am a photographer and my studio is in my home so I thought it was fitting! 8)
The doorway looks great! The colors of the door and the garland are a great match. I have to say though that the 'enter' sign would vex me. When I first looked at it, I wondered why you didn't have it centered. Then I realized it IS centered to the door. To be honest, I might have to move :P

Putting the pictures there outside is a great idea. The trick-or-treaters and all those stopping by are going to love them.
I love love love the Pumpkins they have at TARGET! and I love my new Versa tool - I did each of these (not counting transferring the pattern) in about 25 min EACH. That's amazing.

The Cat is for my friend - I am sending it to her in New Hampshire as a Thankyou Gift (she bought me a blu-ray player - my dvd player had been broken for like 8 months and I was sad. she's awesome)
