Plymouth Couple Create Halloween House Out of Yard Waste
Dave and Judy Eisenreich say they are probably the only people who go to the Maple Grove yard waste site and instead of leaving yard waste, actually take it home. They use sticks, leaves, dried hydrangea, coneflowers, millet and more to create masks and Halloween décor at their Plymouth home.
“Whatever falls to the ground, we assemble it and create something out of it,” said Dave. “The neighborhood loves it. The kids love it, what could be better?”
They started decorating for Halloween, one of their favorite holidays, about 10 years ago. They quickly discovered they could make interesting decor instead of buying it.
“We have so much foilage and trees in our yard we always have branches coming down,” said Judy.”We’re probably the only people who go to Maple Grove yard recycling site and drag stuff home.”
They aim for edgy, not scary or gory, and describe their monsters more like woodland creatures. It gives them an avenue for creativity.
“Whatever falls to the ground, we assemble it and create something out of it,” said Dave. “Once it gets dark, it has a whole different feel. Neighborhood loves it, kids love it, what could be better?
The Eisenreich family loves it when kids come by to see what they’ve created.
Like Rory Daly, who stopped by to say “it’s pretty fun and a little scary.”
