I bought this bunch of greenery when I lived in Las Vegas - uh, that was a loooong time ago. Probably ten years before I MET Martin. It has traveled with me for a while.
I had been planning on dumping it, but I noticed that the branches were a little "spooky".
Looks like we've found a mate!
This was actually the scariest part. I was not sure what I would find at the bottom of the basket. Whew! No spiders.
I separated them and laid them on the newspaper and sprayed each side with a black semi-gloss.
I entwined them with some orange lights and stuck them in the pot.
The boys thought this was the best part - fog.
It's a little large, but I think it has nice presence.
Caught it just as the sun was going down. Not bad.
OOOh, after dark.
Tomorrow I paint the door and go on a pumpkin hunt.
