Easy DIY Halloween Door Decoration

I live on an avenue and don't really have a patio. We have a porch which I've dressed up before but this year, I think being so into my king's birthday, I just didn't. Kids around here don't trick-or-treat anyway so sometimes I think that's why I don't get into it as much as I used to in our other homes.

I think I've mentioned before it's important to know how to use what you've got. It's why I loved these easy Halloween door decorations. I know people like the traditional wreath with a Halloween twist on it and I do too. I think they're super cute! But last time I decorated I didn't have an extra wreath lying around. I have my Christmas one, which is a tradition to put out and I will not sacrifice, and I have one I decorated for Thanksgiving. Remember, "use what you got" not "go out and buy a wreath". (Unless you want to of course).(◠ᴗ◕✿) No wreath meant alternative door decor, which in this case meant...a door monster.

I love love LOOOOOVE Halloween. It's probably my favorite....yeah...definitely my favorite holiday of the year. This may have been something I got from my dad. He loved Halloween, too. I remember one year I was dressed as Elvira (what girl has never dressed up like her?) giving out candies to trick-or-treaters. He was just standing by the door looking off. He had no shirt on and had fake blood all over him. The trick-or-treaters were young but a few of the girls were my age. They were getting there candy but at the same time keeping an eye on my dad. Then...he jumped and boo'd. LMFAO (^ᗨ^✿) One of the older girls dropped her bag and just ran away. It was HILARIOUS! The other kids were dying and made fun of her as they left.

After moving to Puerto Rico, I didn't celebrate Halloween for a while. Maybe because he was no longer with us or maybe because I didn't want to be here. (Maybe a combination of both?) I started celebrating again after being invited to a Halloween party thrown by one of supervisors at work. I remember being asked what I planned to go as. I always answered that I was going as Eve (meaning naked) because I didn't have a costume.(^ᗨ^✿) Truth is, I wasn't sure if I would go because I couldn't seem to get into the Halloween mood and if I DID decide to go, I had no clue what I was going as. The day before the party I decided to go and started to pump myself up. I had to work that day (another job) and had no time to buy a costume. That night I decided to DIY my costume. That was the first time I did so, and I think I have every time I've celebrated since.

Project Runway Scorecard - Season 14 Episode 12: Roll Out the Red Carpet


Roll Out the Red Carpet - Project Runway recap (14x12)

Project Runway Season 14 Designers

"Roll Out the Red Carpet" is the last Project Runway episode before the designers head back home to prepare for New York Fashion Week.

This episode had an obvious winner and I am ecstatic it was that person. The "eliminated" designer, to me, was somewhat surprising because I've been it was going to be someone else for a while now.

Have no idea what I'm talking about? Catch up here::

Project Runway Season 14 Designers


Besides the unconventional and the "show us who you are" challenges, the avant-garde is another of my favorite Project Runway challenges. In order starting at most favorite challenge it would be: avant-garde, unconventional, and "show us who you are".

And (in a Project Runway first) the special element added to "The Runway's in 3D" made season 14's avant-garde challenge even cooler than usual. Check it out:

Did I call it on the last episode recap or DID I CALL IT?! Tsk, tsk, tsk.

Anyway, MAKEOVER TIME! Another Project Runway usual challenge. This time though, Tim, Heidi, Zac, and Nina are a little closer than usual to the clients getting the makeover.

This episode's elimination was so predictable, let's just go right to the vodcast:

Make It Sell - Project Runway recap (14x09)

Project Runway Season 14 Designers

I forgot there's always a challenge where the designer who wins gets to have their look mass-produced. (It always happens, right?) Anyway, THIS is that challenge for Project Runway season 14. The winning look from episode 9 will be available on JustFab.com. I visited the site a couple of times before, but I have to admit I hadn't signed up until after this episode.

The episode was pretty cool but I feel that these Project Runway designers always have an issue when they are told to design for a specific client, or in this JustFab case, a specific "persona". It's like they can't. Like they hear what they need to do with one ear and then half of it goes out the other one. Tsk tsk tsk.
