Watch out for the Witches!

I saw this metal pumpkin at T.J. Maxx a month ago and decided I was going to build on top of it.... soooo.... off I went to Michael's for some  products....
So what I did was I got a large cube of styrofoam and spray painted it a bright orange....
Then I stuffed moss around the sides and a little in the front near the mouth.....

I saw this witch on the Lenox website and decided she would work for this project too....she lights up...see the little twinkle there....
The artificial branches were another item from Michaels....I cut them shorter and played a bit with the branches...
I also added a black raven and a skeleton head
(which has a holder for a candle so he lights up-it was actually a yard stake)



  1. Liz, that looks great. Love how the orange inside makes it look like it is glowing.

  2. Great project Liz! you have gotten very creative.

  3. you are just so clever Liz love this:)

  4. Liz you have the most creative ideas. This looks scary and very pretty at the same time. I love it.

  5. Great ideas! Very creative thinking!!!! Love that witch. I gave all my witches to my daughter and now kinda regret that decision:) Have looked for some this year with no luck. Maybe next year.

  7. That is super cute Liz...I love the glow, and it was very creative thinking on your party.

  8. Love that metal pumpkin -- no wonder it caught your eye, and then spurred you to a creative tableau! Beautiful -- and lots of fun with that darling witch. Nice work. You have a good eye!

  9. Fabulous Liz! I saw the pumpkin cauldron awhile back at HomeGoods and again today at TJ Maxx. I so wanted to get it, but it was large & I didn't want to add to my holiday storage because (hopefully) we'll be moving. I LOVE what you did with it!
