Fall Decorating and Halloween Art

I've been doing a little decorating around here.  Just little touches here and there.  Fall is my favorite season.  I love the colors, sights and smells of fall. 
No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace
as I have seen in one autumnal face
by John Donne

I had the boys make pumpkins using the pinky-side of their fists
for the pumpkin and then their finger for the stem and their thumb for the leaves. 

These are hanging on a wall in my kitchen/dining room.

I enjoy looking at them whenever I am in the room.

Here's a smiling fellow to grace the top of a stack of books.

I've draped leaf garland throughout the house. 
This is the top of the piano in the living room.

I made some candy corn bottles and have set them around in various places.
It's just acrylic paint on an IBC cream soda bottle.

Baby pumpkins are hanging out in my kitchen/dining room. 
Along with some ears of Indian corn.

And here is my Halloween art.  I finished this yesterday.  This is not a very good picture.  I'll try to take a better one later.  It's a 12x12 canvas that I quartered.  Then I painted each square differently.  Except for the words...that is scrapbook paper and so are the polka dots.  The pumpkin, Frankenstein and black cat are all wooden cutouts from Michael's that I painted using acrylic paint and then covered in Mod Podge.  Before I put them on I covered the whole canvas and the scrapbook paper with Mod Podge and then I used Mod Podge to glue the wooden cutouts to the canvas. 
I'm not sure where I will hang this yet.  Perhaps in the hallway leading into the kitchen/dining room? 

Happy Fall Y'all!
