Halloween Hay Bales

We’re on our way to Kev’s audition this morning, but I wanted to pop in and wish everyone a Happy Halloween and share these photos we took while we were out and about yesterday afternoon. I had no idea hay bale decorating was such a big deal around here- but I definitely want in on the action next year!

Strong winds must have gotten a hold of this next one’s “handle”, but man is this a cute idea or what?!

The tootsie rolls were made out of chunks of wood, plastic bags and red tape, and the Smart-ies were made out of painted PVC, plastic, and red tape…

The tin foil “Kisses” are my favorite.

A piece of chocolate that’s bigger than my head? Yes please!

    So cute! This makes me miss living in a rural area. I’ll have to think of a substitute for the hay bales. I don’t know where I would find one here in the city.

    Thanks for posting these! We have done a jack-o-lantern bale the past two years (and a happy face for awhile), but I was wanting to try a new one next year. I love these ideas! We farm and have no shortage of bales so we are fortunate. Do folks in your part of the world decorate bales for Christmas as well? I’d sure love to see some of those as well.
    On another note, good luck and safe travels in Peru.
