skeletons in the garden: the beginning

A couple of years ago Lorelai was disappointed that our house wasn’t decorated for trick-or-treaters, so at the very last-minute we improvised. I got some spider webs, cut out some spiders and we put it all up just in time before the door bell started ringing.

Last year, she really wanted a graveyard scene, so we added some tombstones and bones. We also cut out some more spiders and put them on our front windows.

This year, the front garden wasn’t even pulled and she was asking to put our Halloween decorations in the front yard.

To hold her off, we searched for Halloween ideas on Pinterest to add to our display this year. After a covert trip to Dollar Tree and JoAnn Fabric our plan started to come together.

Here is what October 1st looked like in our front yard…

Today, there seems to have been a change of heart…

I wonder what will happen next?!

 camp in idaho}


we’ve been playing with tissue paper, mod podge, and white pumpkins…

why stick with orange and black when you can use the entire rainbow?!

october 4

these are sitting in the middle of our dining room table…not necessarily a corner, but very happy!

we used these tutorials…

but we mainly just cut out our own shapes and modpodged them onto the pumpkins!

baby girl cut out a shape that looked like the shape of the state of oregon, so i added a heart where portland would be.
