For the last 2 years we have visited Yesterland Farm for the Fall Festival. We love the rides, food, activities, and the atmosphere. There is plenty to see and do and we have made it our new family tradition to go each year!
This year would have been Robert's 3rd time visiting and we're not sure if we're going to be able to make it or not yet due to the pandemic. The only plus is the activities are all outdoors and there's plenty of space to social distance so we may still consider it but I can't say for certain.
Today's tip is inspired from our visits to the farm. On the haunted hayride we go on each year at the farm the trees are decorated with these half pumpkin heads. I had some foam pumpkins that were falling apart but rather than glue them back together, I left them split in half and cut out faces. To give the pumpkins an extra pop like at the farm I added a quick spray of fluorescent orange spray paint. Added some black lights and a spot light under the tree and it looks extra spooky at night.
A lot of people tend to overlook decorating trees for Halloween, including myself! When I saw this idea at the farm I knew I needed to recreate it in my yard. Cheap and easy!
I usually buy as many pumpkins as I can at the thrift store even if they're damaged or look terrible. They can always be fixed in one way or another and people tend to overlook them at the thrifts during Halloween surprisingly!
