A Few More Decor Pictures

We also decorated some on the outside of our house this year.

This is the porch.
I can't believe my flowers are still alive! Crazy warm weather!

And the door.

A close up of my pumpkins.

I just love this sign and witches boots. I was so excited because I wanted these boots last year, but I was strong and waited until Halloween was over and I got them for a steal!
And now I can use them this year!!

I've seen all these pumpkin topiaries all over the Internet and I wanted to do them in my outside pots. So, last week I went shopping to find the cheapest pumpkins I could find, so I could make these for cheap. I got my pumpkins at Roberts for 50% off and at Michaels for way cheap.
These were super easy to make. I just took off the stems of the middle pumpkins and then stuck a dowel down the middle of all three pumpkins and wrapped a fall leaf garland around it. I used the dowel so I could stick it down in the dirt and the kids wouldn't take off with my fake pumpkins :) Oh yeah, the garland I got for only $2 a strand. I'm always lovin the good deal!
Hope you enjoyed that Mom!
