Most people love Christmas. And Easter is always a favorite, too. And while those holidays are wonderful for my family, as well, we REALLY get into Halloween! We are the ones who start planning our Halloween costumes months in advance (and yes, they have to be family coordinated). And decorations? While many try to hit up the after Christmas deals at stores, I am the one out the day after Halloween to stock up on the steals for the following year! So, it’s only natural that I stock up on Halloween front porch DIY ideas. And I thought I would share the wealth for you, as well. Enjoy! And don’t get too scared…
