Front Yard Art for Halloween

This was my front yard for Halloween last year. I made the pumpkin sometime around 1990 so it looks a little faded and one of these days I'll get around to re-painting it to freshen it up.  I made the Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein Trick-or-Treat sign about 8 years ago from some free directions I got from a big craft store. The ghosts and bat I purchased from a crafter at a craft show last year.

And finally the candy corns I made by taking inspiration from some Halloween stickers. The stickers had different faces on candy corn and I thought they were adorable so I had to re-create them for my yard art collection I had going.  I made a triangle shape pattern and then rounded the corners so it would look like the candy corn shape, then painted the candy corn look.  After drying, I then free-handed the faces from looking at the stickers.  I wish I still had the stickers so I could give credit to the designer, but I can' t find them so I'm sorry I can't give credit where it is due. The expressions are adorable.
