I know...we are all just about 'pumpkined' out. Fall and the advent of Halloween seems to get the pumpkin themes going all over blogland, as well as on porches everywhere. And although I love fall, I'm not one to decorate as much for Halloween. I tend to decorate once for the fall season and be done until I change it up for the Holidays.
Here is a shot of my porch last year...
Lots of pumpkins and dried corn. I bought the ceramic pumpkins years ago from Pier 1 (I think) and have used them every year since. I made the fabric pumpkins from burlap and leftover muslin a couple of years ago.
But this year I found a cute idea for Halloween votives here at Classy Clutter...
so I decided to create some light for the Trick 'o Treaters. They are so easily added and then taken away after October 31.
Our porch this year has many of the same tried and true elements with some new additions that I've gathered from around our house. Isn't that tiger fun? I discovered him at Pier 1 on clearance.
I carry the pumpkin theme indoors. This sits in the entry. The only new addition is the black sequined pumpkin I got for a steal at JoAnn's.
Another DIY from Kelly over at A Soulful Home I just thought these were too cute not to make on a crafty Saturday with the twins.
I was right - the twins loved the project!
And they are so easy to make I made a bunch of them for our Soroptimist's Halloween party today. These will grace the tables along with some bite sized candy bars. Check out my Instagram later today to see the result.
The pumpkin theme is so versatile,
after the trick-o-treaters have come and gone, all I have to do is rearrange a few accessories and I'm ready for Thanksgiving.
How do you decorate for fall?
Halloween and then Thanksgiving,
or are you like me and decorate for the entire season?
Happy Wednesday everyone.
