Our front porch has a section that is long and narrow. It’s not quite wide enough for furniture, but I still love to decorate it. Last Christmas I hung giant stars from the ceiling of that section of the porch- (click here to see the stars hung at Christmas)
…..and it always made me smile a little bit when I’d drive by at night and find them lit up.
Building on that same idea, this year for Halloween I’ve hung floating Witch’s hats along the porch… btw, is it Witch’s Hat as in a hat that belongs to a witch? Or is it Witches Hat as in multiple Witches with hats?? I’m not sure, I think both so if you disagree I apologize for my grammatical infraction in advance.
The project is really simple and I think adds a fun an unexpected element to our front porch. Let me show you how to do it.

LED light sticks – UPDATE: A reader last year told me they used battery powered tea lights and they worked well. They tied the fishing line around the wick. Someone else also suggested using glow sticks.
