Transition from Halloween to Thanksgiving Decor - By Stacy


 Halloween is my least favorite Holiday. I am not one for all the gore. But I have 4 boys. So to humor them I do put out some Frankensteins, skeletons, spiders, bats and things like that. The majority of what I decorate with is pumpkins and fall leaves. It goes up for Halloween and can stay up for Thanksgiving. Here are some of the pumpkins that I have. There is a tutorial for this Toilet Paper Pumpkin on my blog. Yep. There's toilet paper inside! It is EASY. And there is no sewing involved which makes me happy :)



 These Paper Mache Pumpkins were a fun family project. You can read more about them HERE.



I "scratch" pumpkins with words and pictures when they start to turn orange in my garden. They naturally scar over and it looks really neat. You can see more examples HERE.

Happy Fall!!!
