Pump-kin Up the Volume: Quick Halloween Home Decor Tip
Here's a quick and easy Halloween home decor tip. Most grocery stores like Kroger and Trader Joe's have affordable fall mums. I know I regularly throw one into the cart.
Next time you are at the store, also pick up one of the $.99 plastic pumpkins. My daughter hates these things. (I believe it's because they don't hold enough candy.)
Anyway, I love them. They are so nostalgic to me. I have old photos where my brother Jim and I are running through our lawn in Massachusetts with pumpkins in hand. I believe we played with these pumpkins for months around Halloween time.
Here's the easy way to combine these two fall favorites.
- Slip your mum out of its floral wrapper.
- Remove the pot and throw it away.
- Place the mum back into its floral wrapper. This is very important so you don't water your counter when you water.
- Slide the mum in its floral wrapper into the pumpkin.
The pumpkin looks a little like its wearing a punk rocker (or Pumpkin Rocker) costume for the season. Remember to water your new dude.
