Halloween is a really big deal in our town. But now that our kids are grown I tend to lean more toward fall decorations for Halloween than skeletons and spiders! Today I am sharing how I decorated our home for fall and Halloween. I also shared my DIY’s to make a wreath for our front door and painted pumpkins for our entryway.

When I mentioned that Halloween in our neighborhood is a big deal, I meant to say that we get about 600 trick-or-treaters every year. It’s crazy but I love it. We try to eat dinner really early on Halloween. We have to eat in the dining room because the doorbell rings at least twenty times during dinner! After dinner, we sit in the living room and take turns answering the doorbell. There were plenty of years that Dave had to race to the grocery store because we ran out of candy! It’s very fun but also kind of exhausting.

I decorated the outside on our front porch and also decorate our entryway. All of the florals, pumpkins, and wreath supplies are from JOANN. In fact, if you haven’t seen the inventory of pumpkins at JOANN you should go today. The selection and prices are unbelievable.

These Blooming Autumn white pumpkins are my favorite and I love how they look on our front porch. I bought them in three sizes, the Blooming Autumn Extra Large Pumpkin-Cream, Blooming Autumn Natural Pumpkin-Cream, and Blooming Autumn Small Round Pumpkin-White. 

I also purchased Blooming Autumn 31” Paper Millet & Leaf Spray an put them in crocks on my front porch. The pop of orange color brings so much color and interest to our french porch. I love them.

In our entryway, I added more florals and Paper Mache Pumpkins which I painted in orange and green tones. Be sure to head to the JOANN app to see exactly how I painted these pumpkins. The DIY is all about adding shading and using lots of colors (which I mixed from only four bottles of paint.)

I also wanted a lightweight but fun basket to hold our Halloween candy. I painted the top rim of a basket and I love how it works for fall and Halloween.

JOANN has a lot of great fall decorations and Halloween themed wreaths. I wanted a large wreath for my front door so I ended up making one. I can’t believe how perfectly it turned out. These are the florals I used for my wreath (in the order they are pictured below):

Blooming Autumn Raffia Spray-Natural & Rust

Blooming Autumn Berry Bush-Orange

Blooming autumn pinecone spray

Blooming Autumn 37” Maple Leaf Spray-Burgundy & Orange

I also found the wreath at JOANN.

To make the wreath, start by cutting off about half the stems and just inserting the stems into the wreath.

Work your way around by adding more of the floral stems. I didn’t even have to glue them because they were so secure.

It only took me about an hour to make this wreath. And I absolutely love it!

I also added some of the fabulous Simply Autumn Medium Woodchip Pumpkins from JOANN in our living room. Aren’t they amazing?
