This colorful arch display was so easy and I did it in an hour. Okay, Sam did drive the fence posts and fasten the piece of cattle panel to them. (Cattle panel is that flexible but strong piece of fencing that you see here between the two posts.) It's an easy and affordable enough display base, that doesn't take up too much room in my front yard.
See that wooden spool in the background there? Remember when I drove to Kansas to pick up a trailer full of wooden spools of various sizes? Uh huh...that's a lot of spools!!
You can read about that HERE if you like. I have to say, it was pretty easy to select one that fit in the center of that arch, which I then loaded with some pumpkins, squash, bittersweet and a garden owl I picked up at a yard sale. I tied some corn stalks to the front of the arch and added a couple of bales of hay with some more pumpkins, squash, bittersweet and a crow decoy. At the top of the arch I added a little leaf garland that came from the dollars store.
I stood back, took a look at it and said..."Needs a scarecrow."
So I made one!
And that's how I spent a gorgeous fall Sunday afternoon.
Linking up to any or all of the fine parties listed HERE.
