I may have previously mentioned that I loves me some sticks. When a storm blows through and there are sticks and branches all over the neighborhood, I become Crazy Stick Lady. I stop in the neighborhood and grab branches out of the street and embarrass my kids. I am A-OK with that.
Sticks are free and versatile. I use them all the time ( just click here
to see how much ) and today, they are helping me deal with an area that is in the process of being landscaped… all while getting my Halloween on.
I am slowly filling up this bare flower bed with pumpkins and branches that have been spray painted black for Halloween.
Mums, yellow pansies and little pumpkins in a black pot say fall to me. However, shove some black sticks and branches into the middle and I can claim Halloween decor.
Find your sticks and branches, buy the cheapest black spray paint you can get your hands on and paint them. Let them dry and twist them into the dirt in your planter.
I’ve done this with a couple of planters…
This silver pot has a smaller pot inside of it. The pumpkin rests on the smaller pot, while creating a 2 to 3 inch gap to insert more black sticks.
Black sticks and branches on this ledge make a simple Halloween vignette. I like it even more because it’s dirt cheap to put together. Holiday decor shouldn’t cost a lot. Especially when your materials fall right out of the sky.
Or at least from the tree in front of your house…
