Pumpkins and Jacks on the Porch

I am doing something a little different on the front porch this year.  Instead of spreading out my jack-o-lanterns on the steps like I always do, I decided to group them all together along with a few other things.

I really love the look of tons of real pumpkins all over a front porch.  Only, I've never been one to buy a bunch of pumpkins for fall.  I guess I'm just kinda cheap like that.  

Soooo..... I decided to use what I have!

I also decided to make a few more pumpkins to go with the ceramic jacks.  I found this orange burlap remnant this summer on clearance at Hancock Fabrics.  I simply filled it with paper wrapped around several wine corks to give it some weight, tied it off with twine and painted the ends green for leaves.  How simple was that, right?

The checked pumpkins were on the $1.00 isle at Target one year and this floral arrangement is one I'm sure you've seen before.  The lantern is a new purchase from Ah, at Home this year.

I am so excited about my new sign.  I just made it this morning.  I was trying to make something to put in my booth to sell but I just can't part with it now.  

I still have 5 more blank slate tiles this size that I purchased from a yard sale one day.  Maybe I will make another one to sell....maybe.

What can I say, I am bad like that.  But, I sure do just love how it turned out though!

I guess you could say I'm ready for fall and Halloween now.

I am still searching for a lost box of fall decor.  I am so upset because it has another vine pumpkin, a few of my carved out scroll pumpkins, my pumpkin with words, my fall berry wreath and two of my beautiful blown glass pumpkins.  I have searched this house high and low and cannot find them.  They have to be in the attic still which is crammed full of stuff.  Stuff I need to take to my booth.  Hopefully, I will tackle that project soon. Maybe next weekend.

Thanks for stopping by Y'all!
Have a great week!
