I totally forgot to take more progress photos!
Creepy Owl & Sassy Monocle Cat.
Neat, right?! I'm so happy with them!
I obviously based them on my favorite Beistle designs from a couple posts ago. They were super quick and easy-- the most time consuming part of the entire project was having to run back and forth to buy extra paint and wood because I decided to do the pumpkins last minute. I had Lowe's cut the plywood into 4 x 4 pieces for the owl and cat, and the pumpkins were done on individual 2 x 2 squares that you can buy separately. My dad cut them out and Jeremy screwed them onto posts. I always feel like a Big Deal when my projects end up involving wood and power tools! The biggest thing to remember was to seal them with some sort of outdoor protectorate.. I've already put on a few coats, but I think I might do a few more just to be safe.
We're the only house around us with any decorations up, so I'm sure the neighbors are looking at us a bit strangely right now!
