Halloween Decorating

Pin It

Scribbit is hosting a Winter Bazaar for which she asks for posts related to a monthly theme. This month it's Halloween. Just yesterday afternoon, I came up with this outdoor decoration. It's not rocket science, but here it is:
  • the planter, previously filled with summer annuals, is filled with soil
  • a couple of bamboo stakes are in the center for support
  • 6 corn stalks are tied around the stakes with twine and stuck into the soil. The twine is hidden by corn leaves
  • a tree branch is also pushed into the soil
  • garlands of leaves are twisted around the stalks
  • the ghosts: small styrofoam balls are covered with plastic kitchen bag (cut into 4 squares) held by twist ties
  • a garden glove stuffed with grocery bags is stuck into the soil by a bamboo stake (Dead gardener just couldn't let go!)
  • finally, gourds and pine cones finish it all off!

  2. This is great! But sadly, I am not crafty and fear that if I attempted this it would look more like the crows had picked apart the scarecrow. I just enjoy others' decorations!
