I'm feeling fall! and a little witchy!

I have started decorating outside and I was able to get some of my inspiration from my trip to Florida! We went to Universal Studio's and after visiting Hogsmeade I had to incorporate some of the brooms!
So, I went up my canyon and found some Gnarly old maple branches and made a couple of brooms from the mossy wood. I just wrapped some red thin sticks around the base. I wrapped it with jute and then wrapped some leather around the handle.


 Here is the other broom that I made to go above the front door.
                                            I then added a Welcome Pumpkin sign underneath it!


                            I also had these 3 white stacked pumpkins to add beside the door.
I didn't make this witches shoe but loved it and it was so cheap I don't think I could have made it any cheaper. ( I love finds like that)

I finished the door by adding this wreath I made. I just used a grapevine wreath and added different fall foliage flowers and leaves that I had.  I then hung a spooky sign inside and this can be removed so that later I can use it clear until Thanksgiving!
