While many people carve a creative design into a pumpkin for their doorstep, Stephanie Lee took it a few steps further this Halloween.
Stephanie’s home in Kesteven Road, Stamford, certainly attracted the attention of passers-by as she went all out to decorate it for the spooky occasion.
Decorated with cobwebs, trick or treaters were also welcomed by witches and talking skeletons as they stepped onto the driveway and pressed the doorbell that called: “Enter if you dare”.
Smoke from a witch’s cauldron drifted up into the air and the atmosphere was made even more scary with the addition of blood and gravestones.
The display has been Stephanie’s pride and joy for more than three years and is growing bigger every year. She was inspired after seeing videos of an American man decorating his home online and gets many of her ideas by surfing the web.
This year Stephanie estimates she has spent around £300 creating the masterpiece but says it’s worth it to see the looks on the faces of young trick or treaters. She and her mum spent the afternoon filling 300 bags for youngsters who dared to stop by.
Stephanie said: “It’s just for the fun of Halloween and it’s really nice for the children who come by.”
