I want to share with you these wonderful yummy candy corn pretzel rods.
Next dip the pretzels in the orange candy melts covering about 1/2 of the white. Then immediately sprinkle the colored sprinkles on top.
Let these cool and dry again and you are done!
Store in a container.

Hi there! I just wanted to share my fall outdoor decorations today.
Here are some close-up's.
The wreath is from Hobby Lobby.
This scarecrow came from Hobby Lobby.
I got this pretty orange mum and owl planter from Wal-Mart.
This is another fun sign that I bought years ago from Hobby Lobby.
The other thing that I love to do every year is fill up my bird bath with small pumpkins. I love this look!!
Here is an overview of the front lawn.
For my backyard, I have these fun pumpkins and mum on my patio table.
Here she is hard at work painting the pumpkins.
We have never painted pumpkins before but I kept seeing all of the cute painted pumpkins on Pinterest. I grabbed a couple of small pumpkins from Wal-Mart while grocery shopping and then we raided my stash of paints and stencils and Emily got busy. It was a fun project and hopefully a new tradition in our house.
I also have a flag pole that comes off of our pergola and you can see the flag inside the house so I always love changing out this flag. This is my pretty fall flag from Michael's. I will change it out next week for a fun Halloween flag.
Here is inside looking out at the flag.

I decided a couple of lanterns that were on my fireplace needed some color love.
I decided to spray paint them with some Rust-Oleum Satin Colonial Red spray paint.
Don't you just love the difference a little spray paint can make? Wow!
Before painting, my husband carefully removed the glass.
Then we got busy spray painting and then I used some 220 grit sand paper to sand the edges for a more distressed look.
I love the pop of color that they add to my fireplace this year.
Don't be afraid to change up your decorations with spray paint. You can always go back over it with another color if you don't like it.
