We found this old ladder on the side of the road. It was pretty rough but a coat of creamy white paint cleaned it right up. We added a plastic Halloween candy bucket with a potted plant and a pennant flag we created with fabric scraps and cardboard and the words "Boo" were written with a Sharpie.
We created a wreath using a bag of black beans, some fabric scraps, cardboard and LOTS of glue.
We glued the beans to a piece of round cardboar?d we cut. This was a very time consuming wreath because in terms of weight the beans need to be laid out one layer at a time. We used spray adhesive to glue the beans to the cardboard. Then sprayed over the beans with another coat. Then we used plain old Elmer's glue and poured it all over the beans. We waited a day for it to dry and then repeated the process. On the third day, we cut fabric scraps tied it around the wreath, added a bow and then hung it on our front door. It was time consuming but we didn't have to buy anything to make it since we already had everything on hand.
The black chair was a curbside find. We found it just like this and thought it was perfect the way it was. As the season's change we can easily swap out potted plants or add a pumpkin like we did here to fit the seasons. Who knows? Santa might be sitting there next!
We used a Black Sharpie to add stripes to the white Heirloom pumpkins and the large orange pumpkins.
Some fresh flowers in an old crate fill up the space under the chair.
So there you have it. You can create a space using items found at the curb or by using what you already have on hand. The only items we purchased were the two large pumpkins and some fresh mums. Everything else we had on hand. Overall cost was less than $20.00.
Until next time.....
