Halloween Decor: Doin’ It Up Right, Part 1

When I lived at The Penthouse, I hosted an annual H’ween party. Thus, I came to have quite the collection of Halloween decorations (which included printouts of Stephen Gammell’s nightmarish illustrations from the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark series and heaps and heaps of cobwebs, which really go a long way to transforming a room). But I didn’t take any of it with us when Honey Bear and I moved, and now each year we make our decorations, and by that I mean we carve half-priced pumpkins on the first weekend of November and belatedly put them on the stoop just in time for TomHanksGiving.

Not only are we putting jack-o-lanterns on the stoop in November, we don’t even know what thyme is

But some people really know how to do it up right when it comes to Halloween decorjust take a peek at these fine examples, and try some of the tutorials and become the town’s toast!
