Mom put this monster together out of all kinds of materials, including moss from the back yard and old leaves that fell off her plants. He is pretty cool during the day but at night he gets really scary. Some trick-or-treaters make big circles around him to get the candy at the front door!
Mom also has lined the walkway to her front door with branches. We used similar branches at my wedding, but we painted and glittered them silvery white. They have a much spookier look when left natural.
