Our fall porchscape

I wanted to share some pictures of our fall porch-scape. Bean's preschool held a mum sale and this has to be one of the biggest mums I've seen. I can't wait for it to fully bloom. I threw in a pepper plant for some seasonal color.

I found this printable at The Diary of Dave's Wife and made a broom parking sign to go in the mum. Here's how I put my sign together.

I took a piece of a cutup drink carton and coated it with Mod Podge.

While the Mod Podge was still a little tacky, Bean and I sprinkled glitter all over the sign.

Glitter makes everything better.

Once it was all dry, I attached a dowel rod to the back with some tape.  Then we placed it loosely inside the mum and moved the pumpkin up for a little bit of company for the sign.  Of course, then we had to add a couple of brooms so all the witches would know exactly where to park.
