Halloween front porch

So I have to boost a little about my sister. She has got to be the most thrifty person I know. She goes to garage sales, second hand stores, and finds free stuff and makes it awesome. I show up at her house the other day and this is what I found!

He found the table at the local DI (a goodwill place) she made it more distressed. Crates she found at a yard sale. She grew the larger pumpkins. The fence was from my father inlaw, he replaced the fence and was going to throw the old one away!

At first glance you’d think this would cost a lot but now you know it’s doable! Hope you like it!

DIY Spooky tree

This DIY can save you money on decorations this year. Last Halloween I wanted to save as much money as possible. My sister told me of this tree you can paint and put outside for Halloween. This is how it turned out!

This is what you’ll need for this project.
1. A branch (I got one from the mountains and one from my in-laws house)
2. Spray paint (black or white)
3. A black bird from the dollar store
4. A pot

It’s that easy and that cheap. I painted my tree black but my sister painted hers white. Both spooky. Only thing you do for this craft is paint and place in a pot! That’s it! You can also add spider webs and spiders. Enjoy!
