Halloween Decorating Phase 1

This year is the first year we have a yard to decorate!!!!! (Not excited really) My big boy is at his dads this weekend and I have gone all out on phase 1 decorating to surprise him when he comes home. Phase 2 is a series of DIY that will happen throughout the next few weeks. So here are some peeks at our yard so far.

I also have been working on the tile DIY. That is turning out pretty swell, I spent most of my day in the yard because the weather was gorgeous. Tomorrow I will start early so I can Finish this DIY for a Tutorial Monday. Have a Great Weekend.
