I saw this idea on Pinterest and since I already had the porch rail basket up, I decided this was a must. I just transplanted my succulents out, left the sweet potato vine in and added two sugar pie pumpkins that weren't too heavy, a baby white one, and some real and faux greenery and flowers. I love it. Simple and quick, but a huge impact. The pumpkins were only $1 each. And it will stay all through Thanksgiving.
I really liked the idea of white and green gourds, but these orange ones stack up pretty well, too...
This is a scarecrow on a stick I bought at the Witches Night out last year in Lebanon. Finally found the perfect place for him. I will bring it in if it rains, though. It is handmade.
This is how they turned out.
Here I wanted to put something up across the lattice, but just a string of leaf garland was not enough, so I had the idea to gather some burlap and hang that to add some bulk to it. I just cut two strips and did a simple running stitch and tied it up with twine. It turned out to be just the perfect length.
I tucked these two little guys under the table. They were only $1 and $2.
I wanted to do the same type of gathered burlap on the hand rail, but it was going to take too long, so I settled for just wrapping a strip of it under the leaves.
I tied some leftover glittery ribbon to the shepherds hook holding the outdoor lantern. It has a timer and runs for 5 hours. It's a warm addition to the yard.
I noticed this just as I was finishing up. It's our first official fallen leaf!
