I think is a great decoration for people that get their pumpkins smashed each year or have trouble with decorations in their area. They work great for porches, windows, as garland, for centerpieces, and many other reasons. You can even make these for gift ideas like Halloween boxes filled with goodies like this and lots of candy.
