As I've said before my children have complained about the lack of holiday decor at our house.
I don't necessarily go all out anyway during Halloween, but I do like some Fall flavor in the house.
Near my house is a frontage road to the highway. Over the past number of weeks as I drove that direction I wanted to see these weeds (the dark ones in the pic below) up close and personal because I thought they might work for a cool vase display.
These white ones would probably make an interesting display too, but I was after the dark ones.
Finally one day my oldest son and I just hopped in the car with a pair of scissors and cut some down.
I gathered them all up in a vase and set them on our piano.
I like it.
The kids have since added some red leaves from our Maple tree out back.
Here are what those weed things look like up close--those little pods dropped like crazy when we were arranging them. But if we leave it alone they stay put just fine.
A couple other weed options I've noticed around my neighborhood.
And this feather grass something......
I am going to retrieve some of this.
While taking pictures I noticed that I will need something to cut it. Those stems are thick.
And the feather ends are bigger than my hand.
They were awesome blowing in the wind when I took these pics.
I need to plant some of this at my house too.
Hopefully you can find some interesting weeds around your home to use.....for free.
Enjoy your weekend.
