Helen and Jason Bayard say it took an entire weekend to decorate their home filled with LED lights, that are completely environmentally friendly, and collected items.

The Bayards say they enjoy seeing people pass by to view the home as long as they aren’t going onto the property line potentially endangering themselves of any hazardous decorations.

“I make a lot of this stuff, a lot of this stuff is not bought. It’s made with trees we cut down, I painted a lot of stuff, I got sheets and stuff from the ARCH, stuff out of the trash, picked up a bed on the side of the road. So yeah, most stuff is either found or made,” The Bayard’s said.

The Poche family tell us they decorate their house for Christmas and Halloween every year. They say some of their decorations were made 30 years ago buy a family member.

They say decorating their home brings the family together and is all in great fun.

“My little niece says she’s going to be seven in October. If you don’t decorate your house you’re lazy, but if you decorate your house you’re good to go because you’re not lazy.” the

The winner will receive a free professional home photo shoot.
