Welcome October

I love to decorate for Halloween in October. This year I decided to add two pumpkin topiary to the front porch utilizing the flower pots from the summer. The boys helped pick out the right sized pumpkins and then we stacked and fixed them together. Then I applied some of Stampin' Up! seasonal Decor Elements to the pumpkins. After Halloween I can remove the spiders and still keep the pumpkins for November.

I thought I'd go with a snake and spider theme this year. I like the Spiders crawling up the pumpkins, they are kinda creepy. I also found some larger spiders at the dollar store to hang above the pumpkins. They are attached to wire and they sway nicely with the wind.

Some of you may remember the snake wreath I made from last year. I touched up the paint on the wreath an hung up the creepy thing and then topped off the door with another Halloween decor piece applied to the door. We had our carpets cleaned the other day and the carpet cleaner guys really liked the wreath and so I'm considering that piece of decor a WIN.

I couldn't resist adding the crow silhouette to the bottom of the double garage door. It's a small detail and at first glance looks pretty real. I do a double take every morning and a few neighbors have as well. The dogs in the neighborhood are also fascinated with this addition. I might have to remove it!

Inside I've kept it fairly simple with pumpkins in jars and dishes.

We are loving this fall weather and now that it's not so hot spending much time outdoors. Happy fall!
