Easy-Peasy Pumpkin Decorating

I sure haven't gotten around to doing much decorating for the Fall. I'm feeling sort of "Bah-humbug" about Halloween this year.

I did buy some pumpkins. 

And then I put them outside the garage door. 

And that is about all the effort I have put forth so far. 

Last year I was inspired to do some creative chevron painting on my pumpkins and use decorative ribbons. For whatever reason, this year I've been so lazy and wanted something with less effort required. 

Is that bad of me?!

I got my act together today and put some spider web on my now dead bushes in the front of the house (yeah I managed to kill those - I did not consider how much the dirt would settle and the top two inches of the roots became exposed. Lesson learned!). I also put some up on the brick wall by the garage. That stuff sticks perfectly to the texture of the brick! 

Then I put my pumpkins by the door. I had a few pairs of black textured tights, so I put one leg of the tights onto the pumpkin. And...ta dah! Cuteness everywhere! 

I was concerned the tights would not stretch over my jumbo pumpkin; my legs are not that big!

But it worked!

I found some leftover fuzzy yarn from an old craft project and tied it around each stem to look like vines. 

I think the rest of my decorating efforts are being saved up for the Trunk or Treat in a few days. My awkward swing-out SUV door is providing me with quite a canvas for creativity.
