I've seen a few mummy doors around blogland (the first one I saw was at Honey and Fitz) and wanted to try my own. See, this summer we got a new front door and I painted it Buttercup yellow. It's perfect for spring and summer, but it doesn't exactly scream Halloween. I thought turning the door into a mummy was a good way to cover up the yellow. So a few weeks ago I bought a couple rolls of white crepe paper streamers. They sat in the bag until this past week. Finally I decided to get to work on it. And it took a long time. I quit after 45 minutes and thought I'd finish up the next day. Well, the next morning I opened the door to a bunch of sagging streamers.
Thrifty Decor Chick, but I was hoping because I had a storm door, it wouldn't happen to mine. I was ready to pull it all off, but my husband said it looked kind of cool so I left it. When I came home from work that evening, I finished wrapping the door. Because I knew it would sag, I didn't bother covering up every inch of the yellow door.
I also finished up my pumpkin porch display. I usually use a big hay bale (seen in this post), but for Christmas I received a cedar planter that my brother made and I used it on my porch this summer.
