I found this fun hay cart at a close-out store, among the Summer clearance merchandise and priced at only $20.00! But, if you can’t find a bargain, the garden centers of most discount stores carry a version of these carts. Of course, you can also simply use an old wheelbarrow to hold some fall mums.
If you choose the cart design, I added the following items (found at
either craft or discount stores that carry seasonal décor):
2 hay bales
4 artificial pumpkins
2 stalks each of fall-colored, silk flowers and leaves
1 Pumpkin Patch sign
1 small rake
Mr. & Mrs. Scarecrow
Imagine the fun you will have filling your new purchase with different goodies EVERY season, i.e. alpine trees & under-lit snow at Christmas, loads of Easter grass & HUGE plastic eggs in the Spring, patriotic flags tucked in among some pretty summer flowers, etc). The neighbors will be looking forward to your creative displays too… every, single season!

Enjoy the Creativity!

    What garden discount stores can you find the cart?

      I found mine at a family-owned shop in Lake Alfred, FL called The Stable but I’ve seen similar carts in Hobby Lobby. Both ship I believe.
