Decorating, Wreath & Lil Pumpkin Men

This past weekend, my husband brought down the fall decorations from the attic.  Although I love fall, I really wasn't in the mood for decorating...I have a lot of stuff!  On that particular day, I needed to go out and run a few errands, so my husband & daughter offered to decorate for me...what?! 

Needless to say, when I returned home a couple of hours later so excited to see their work, I was horrified....the house was a disaster!  Apparently their idea of decorating was just emptying the boxes all over and laying things in rooms they thought they should go in.  I was a little stressed, but just said "thank you for laying everything out for me to see, it should go a lot quicker that way".  So what happened next....the stuff layed there for three days (sorry I didn't take any picts..ugh).

Yesterday, I finally got around to putting my things out and cleaning up, I just couldn't look at the mess anymore!  Here are a couple shots of my entrance way to the house....and yes I put up most of the Halloween items too;

Here is a quick wreath I made & put on the front door.  The first shot was without the flash, the second shot was with the flash...doesn't the second shot look as though it is on fire?!
Very easy to put together, took no time at all:)
As you can see I have a ficus tree on my front porch, I also have one inside my house.  I wanted to hang some halloween items in the tree so I came up with these little guys;
They were fun to make, just need a little bit of drying time for the decoupage & painting.
Add twigs for a stem and wrap with floral wire to hang.
Here they are in my tree;
Now all I need are some orange lights!
Enjoy your day:)

Oh I should really start decorating for Fall. That's what I think when I see your pictures and Fall pics on other blogs. I like the Halloween sign and I love the white Shaker bench in your hallway!!

I guess they were trying to be helpful...which is sweet! I love the big tree with the pumpkins. I have some candy corn lights that I got at CVS that I could put in mine. Thanks for the idea! Hugs!
