Good afternoon! I seriously had every intention of taking that basket of pumpkins to the attic today and slowly putting away a few Halloween and Fall items and somehow the ex kinder teacher in me came out and this happened!!!!My A-Frame Display Ladder I purchased a few months ago from Antique Farmhouse has easily become a favorite item in my home that gets moved around quite a bit! I actually just moved it in my daughter’s new room this week…..shhhh…..I promised her I will move it back in there after Halloween!
Here is another wooden ladder that would be so fun to decorate as well!
This is the ladder in my daughter’s room we are are currently making over and we are planning on adding some fun globe lights too. I just love it against the diy brick wall my husband installed! Blog post on that will be coming soon!
I also had this same ladder in my bedroom this summer with mason jars and fresh flowers! I probably should just go ahead and purchase another one because I love it there too and its so fun to change it up with the different seasons!
Alright back to Halloween! I’ve seen a few different porches on Pinterest with ladders on them and thought the idea was so cool! My front porch is really small, so I decided to try it on my back porch instead. I knew I wanted it to have the letters “BOO” going down it so I just searched on Pinterest for printable letters and it led me to DIY Swank’s Free Printable Letters. Quick, super easy and FREE!!!
I chose to print on Kraft paper cardstock since that’s all I had but really any color cardstock would work great or if I had planned ahead I love the idea of printing on these burlap sheets!! I also had some leftover burlap garland from one of kiddos’ birthday parties to attach it to the ladder! I made slits in the cardstock above the letters and placed the burlap garland through it and attached it to the ladder and then added a few spiders and pumpkins and that was it!!
And here it is all put together! I still plan on trying to fit it on my front porch but its definitely going to be tight!
