October will be here before we know it, and that means pulling out pumpkins, spider webs, witches brooms and other utterly eerie Halloween decorations, to create a spooky entrance to your home.

Now, whether you're a minimalist.... or prefer a heart-stopping, scary, stop-'em-dead-in-their-tracks entrance up to your house, remember.... you can do it, and the best part, most are inexpensive DIY projects.

But if you're not sure how to go, check out this pretty simple, but chic decorating scheme from Pottery Barn. It's a great look, and not hard to pull of, at all!

Just take all the elements apart....

all kinds of pumpkins, autumn leaves garlands and wreaths, a few candle lanterns and scary crows... and don't forget the ratty curtain in the front door window!

Now, look at the picture and place what you've gathered in a similar pattern. It doesn't have to look exactly like the picture, so don't even try that! You'll only get frustrated if you try to make it perfect. Remember, this is supposed to be fun!

Now stand back and take a look..... you do good work!
