This started out as our Halloween Lawn display…and the theme seemed right to turn the head stones into signs warning not to take too many pieces of candy!!!

The Left headstone says: “Take one—have some fun!”

The Middle says: “Take two and you may feel blue…”

The third says: “Take Three and you may end of like ME!” as in take three pieces and you will end up in this graveyard for ETERNITY…

This became a good contest project because we recently tore out a section of fence and it became a perfect coffin…then I added the grave “stones”...

This will come in handy tomorrow night because we have two young daughters===and my wife and I both love going trick or treat with them…thus we need to leave a box of candy out…

I may also rig up the head on a string…and hide so if a kid takes too many I will pull the head up out of the grade…

Thanks guys!

Blake—-everyone always loves the zuchini…we usually let a few zuchinis grow at the end of the season—-or we miss one and realize YIKES…too big…they dont taste as good grown big…but sure are fun to carve…
