Hey there fellow Homebodies!
Wanna see something disgustingly good? Are you planning a Halloween party and need that one last gory detail? You have come to the right place!
A few fellow bloggers and I are participating in a Creepy Crawl that Marilyn from The Artsy Girl Connection has put together to countdown to Halloween. Day one is here and Miss Marilyn has outdone herself in the gory goodness factor!

Eeek that's me!
I'm soo nervous!
In case you aren't looking for creepy meet this guy!Pin It
I think he turned out to be a cute little rustic Halloween greeting at the door.
And oh so easy!
Here's what you do....
First take a short road trip with your crew and go on a hunt..
do whatever little stretching or dancing you need to do to prepare
take a good look at each intricate detail
think about your selection
(what is mom going to try to achieve with these?)
there's a good one
and bring em home baby!
What a trooper!
Now really..I had no intention to do this little tower o' pumpkins to this extent. I thought I might put a couple on top of each other but this nope. I just couldn't help myself they fit so perfectly together!
So then I thought if I just added a little spagna moss at the bottom it would be more finished.
Then I decided it needed a little more..
I bought a few of these guys which were 1.49 and then 30% off.
then I had to buy some of this lovely chalkboard paint. This is where we are in life right now...I know I already have some in the garage somewhere...but you should see our garage at the moment! No please don't ...don't go in there..you will never come out! So I just bought more! If it saves a little sanity then I am down with buying it because you can never have enough chalkboard paint right?
I put the wood pennant little guys into one of the gazillion Scentsy boxes that I have laying around to avoid overspray and turned them into a cute little chalkboard bunting.
I didn't get any pics but you know what to do...Write something on the bunting!
Like BOO of course;)
Since the raffia was wired it was super simple to position it around the pumpkins
you can tell here that I just wrapped it around the stem of the top pumpkin to hold it in place
and then just tucked the rest in the back.
oh and you may notice I tucked a little more spagna moss in between some of these beauties!
What do ya think? Have you found a way to display your pumpkin finds? Do you scatter them all around the house or do you come home with a mission to make something! Oh and don't worry we did get a jack o lantern out of them too!
See you tomorrow where my old friend spagna shows up again..
