Have you ever just passed by something in your home town and given it no mind, until one day, you just do? That’s what happened yesterday. A botanical greenhouse that has always been in the middle of Tacomas Wright Park, I have passed by a million times, just happened to be open and this time I went in!
A lovely little tropical oasis that housed some fun plant species and a koi pond, where they let you feed the fish occasionally. And, currently decorated here and there for some fun photos for fall and Halloween.
It was a lovely, quick, little, colorful escape from the grey day and glad I finally made the trip in!
I was ready to do a new door hanging for the Halloween holiday. So, for creativity on a budget I stopped at the dollar store for a few finds.
I got three plastic skulls that were the right cost but, lacked any real pizzaz so, a little metallic paint changed the mood for me. To get my angel of death “look” I needed black wings and happened to find a great deal at a local thrift shop…it was a score!
The trick to hanging these was to collectively get them to hang nicely without bowing out. So, some small drill holes and wiring on the tops and jawlines creating a circle to hang. It still flopped forward so nails in the side added to the macabre. And, held the wire just right.
I went gung-ho with the gold and just painted the pumpkins too! Why not? Do you decorate your front door for Halloween?
When given the choice between traditional pumpkins and the non-traditional ones, which do you choose?
They are all pretty to me and some unusual, which I like as well. What do you prefer? There are so many good ones to choose from!!
