Extreme Halloween Decorating

As we do every year, we recently decorated the front porch for Halloween. Our version of this involves a trip to the dollar store and spreading out a bunch of fake spider webs and planting a plastic tombstone. Granted, the webs are neon orange and suggest that our spiders are radioactive, but still, I think the kids and I had something a little grander in mind. If you, too, have a lot of Halloween ambition, here are some examples of homes that take their holiday decor to the next level.
