    Autumn Decor

    I'm working on my autumn decor, in particular my little wheelbarrow. Last year it looked like this:


    "Hail him who saves you by his grace,
    and crown him Lord of all."

    I'm using silk oak leaves, bittersweet and foam pumpkins and I think it will look better. This way I can save the decor for another year and not have to spend more money.

    Foam pumpkins! I thought those were a bit early! And you can't turn them in to soup as well as carving them for halloween...
    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    There's only me and my husband; he hates pumpkin soup. I always used canned pumpkin in pie. Halloween and carved pumpkins? I never do that, but I do carve watermelon baskets for the Fourth of July.

    So a person can buy a pumpkin for soup without taking away from the wheelbarrow arrangement.

    I've noticed that those "fake" pumpkins that you can actually carve seem to be gaining popularity. I think your wheelbarrow is the perfect "anchor" to the display.
    I love Outdoor Christmas Lights!!

    I had no idea there were foam pumpkins that you can carve - learned something new!

    I bought a set of carving tools and I found out that they are for faux pumpkins (hollow ones?). I wonder if I can use these tools on my watermelons; that's why I bought them.
