Leaf collecting and a giant lawn spider!

Halloween is here so yesterday we decided to start the preparations by decorating the garden and home ready for some spooky fun!

We headed out to the park nearby and collected a LOT of leaves in various shaped bags...


We tied them up, twisted them, positioned them and pinned them down to create...



...a wonderful spider for the lawn (minus 2 legs) !

What do you think? Do you decorate your garden?

I'm sharing this with The Gallery as the theme is Frightful and with Country Kids for outdoor fun.
