Craft Pumpkins

I love Halloween. My husband does not understand my excitement over lit pumpkins and Halloween decor.

I think I have made it clear that I don't like to throw things away - but when it comes to real pumpkins I kind of faint at the price. Each year I buy a few more new craft pumpkins from Michaels when they are on half price. Each year I carve a few more and add them to our little display.

This year we have a few more additions to our own little pumpkin patch. 

A big mummy spider has joined the icky nest of baby spiders. 

Some scary pumpkin bugs have landed on the box woods. 

My favorite still is the pumpkin snake we made last year - he curls his way down the steps.

Every pumpkin you see in this picture is fake. We bag them up into large bin liners every year and store them in the garden shed until the next Halloween. I used to feel ashamed about my love for craft pumpkins until we visited the Pumpkin Garden at the New York Botanical Gardens - all their pumpkins are fake too!!

You can see more of my pumpkins from a post I made back in 2011!

Have a fun & safe Halloween tomorrow.

I want to come to your house and see all those pumpkins. I like the little LED tea lights for pumpkins, too. Candles worry me.
