Clowning Around with Color for Halloween
This color-loving designer is very much looking forward to her favorite holiday season. So much so, that I am going to show you how The Home Depot has everything you could possibly need to decorate your front step for the upcoming Halloween holiday!
When I first assessed our front door’s “trick-or-treat” situation, it was something straight up out of a scary story. Complete with a creepy door knocker, a dry wood door, old paint and lots of red brick. However, I knew it was something I could easily fix with bright, bold paint and some fun Halloween decor!
One-Stop Shop for Halloween Decor
And that’s why The Home Depot is my one-stop shop for Halloween! After perusing their new 2020 Holiday collection online, my entire Halloween design quickly came to fruition in my mind’s eye. So I ordered these two scary (yet very colorful) clowns, along with some other Halloween decor items (via The Home Depot mobile app) and then got to selecting some BEHR paint colors for that dry front door.
Add Colorful Paint
Just like the true color lover I am, I ended up selecting 29 different BEHR paint colors for our front entry’s exterior door (all from The Home Depot) and yes, you did read that right, doers. Twenty-nine different paint colors!
That way I could design the door to be both a taste of what to expect inside our rainbow-tastic home, while also helping alleviate some of the frightfulness of the scary clowns with whimsical color. I mean, it is ultimately a children’s holiday after all. I’m not really interested in scaring off those young trick-or-treaters.
Don’t Be Afraid To Think Outside The Box
I then repurposed these battery-operated LED Clown Pathway Halloween Markers by cable-tying them onto one of The Home Depot’s artificial Christmas wreaths and smashing their clown noses with my thumbs; creating a one-of-a-kind, Halloween-themed wreath for our colorfully-improved door.
Always Greet Your Guests
Because of The Home Depot, I have been able to keep my design business afloat with their online shopping, curbside pickup and now their wonderful selection of Halloween decor. We all need something to look forward to right now, and the holidays are where it’s at. Have a safe and Happy Halloween, my colorful doers.
