I wanted to share with you a door I recently did for a client that I haven’t done before in the Fall. I texted her and asked if we wanted to do Fall or Halloween for her door and I was so excited when she said Halloween and knowing her I knew I had to work purple into the color scheme. I decided to go with Purple, Lime Green or Chartreuse and Black for the base and achieved that by using Mesh Ribbon in those colors and to use those colors and Orange to decorate around the door. I headed out to At Home to find decorations for the door and went with several of the pieces from their Halloween tinsel collection, I chose the cats and witches boots and added a couple of tombstones, spider webs, and big hairy spiders. My client and her husband are thrilled with the door and before I left we decided it needed a couple of wreaths. Again, I turned to Mesh Ribbon and At Home, this time using Orange, Purple and a little bit of Black for the wreath itself and hung a tinsel witches boot in the center. I’m very happy with how this turned out and even better so is the client. Halloween is fun because you can use crazy color combinations and it works, I can’t wait to show you what we do for the rest of the holidays. Enjoy!!!
As you can see this is a tall front door, we leave the grapevine base up all year long and change out the decorations to go with the different seasons and holidays.
My client loves shoes, so I knew the witches boots in three different colors were a must.
These tombstones are made of styrofoam and come in several different sizes.
Earlier in the season, these cats came in different colors, these Orange ones were the perfect hit of color I needed without using pumpkins.
My client already had the witches legs and shoes so my color scheme worked perfect.
I added spider webs from the top and down each side, and if you have webs then you need spiders and these two creepy critters certainly fill the bill.
I want to think Brenda and Randy Granzow for letting me photograph their front door and for being my clients and all the great projects they throw my way.
