Decorating for Halloween

I have a long post in the works about my parents' visit and how we had to buy a new car and shop at Ikea and celebrate Jane's eleventh birthday (I know, I don't believe it either.) but first, I just had to show y'all our Halloween yard art.


I stole the idea off of Facebook (because theft of intellectual property is totally the sincerest form of social networking.) I am lucky, because, as we all know, I have a prom dress to use as a model...

It turns out that chicken wire is very stabby and as such, made me say words that are unbecoming of a Southerner.  Also? I'm bleeding, but it was totally worth it.
I am particularly proud of the bow on the little one. I might need stitches, but I am proud anyway.
And my friend Rebecca suggested I use them as tomato cages in the Spring.  I'll have the best dressed tomatoes on the PLANET!

Omg those are cute! And way less messy - if you don't count the blood - than my bowling ball eyes.

Fab! You have much more energy and stick-to-it-ness than I, who just liked the look and thought ahead to the stabbing and said, "Ooooo, pretty. No."

Ooh! In the dark those are gonna be super spooky. But with cute bows! Double win!

The ghosts are so clever- hope the bleeding stops soon.

I think you could turn them into angels for Christmas by giving them halos and holly wreath garlands... and then tomato cages!

You did a great job! Now do you have to build a storage shed on your rental property to keep these in till Christmas and then tomato time? Just think of all the fun photos you could take with these--one standing at the stove in front of a simmering pot of brew, in the hot tub, walking a dog, etc.

Tomato cage idea is great, but you'll have to cut holes in them to get the 'maters out, won't you?

I think you could train the tomatoes on only the outside of the cages (ghosts).

Great idea, even if you did steal it, you did an amazing job!

Steal/Inspired. Tomayto/Tomahto. Either way the effect is amazing, especially the bows.
