I combined a few vintage croquet clubs in the traditional Halloween color scheme and added them to orange pumpkins for a simple display.

Well, anywhoo, you have a beautiful and classy style that I just love. Simple is good! And, btw, I am skerred of some of those power tools too! Posted: 11:36 am on November 4th

Anyway, your non-power tool technique works beautifully!! So, no worries!! :)

Keep us posted with what you use your croquet set for. I have a couple things in mind I'd like to use my other clubs for.

I just bought a vintage croquet set - may have to pull something together too! :)

Thanks for sharing.
