Here is my entry for the Halloween Yard decorating contest.  I have no idea where I should have posted these, so I hope they get submitted for entry.  We made the fence from scratch, which was a way bigger project than we thought once we started.  The corn stalks in the background came from my parent's garden and the hands in the ground I recently received in a swap.  I added the black birds to the tombstones, they weren't there originally.  I hope you like my yard enough to vote for me!!

Here it is, the whole thing


A little closer


Some dead guy in my cemetery


A pic through the cemetery fence, which me and the bf made from scratch!


Better shot of the fence


Spider and stuff


Hands coming up out of the ground.  Spooooooky


You can't see much at night, but at least you can see the jack o lanterns and the lights in the bushes.


A Halloween wreath I made for the front door.

Can't believe you made that fence from scratch! So awesome and creepy!!! I love the cornstalks, too. I used some huge branches full of fiery colored leaves for my inside-the-house display, and using those natural elements are the best way to get an authentic autumnal look. GREAT job!
