Octopus Trap

This was outside under the deck for years. I thought it was a vase when Jiji first showed it to me. He said rope was tied around it and put in the water. Octopus would go in because they like dark places. It would be pulled up out of the water hopefully with the octopus still inside.

I put dried bay branches in it. We decorated them with spider webs and plastic pumpkins. We used it for a Halloween decoration. We also had a plastic inflatable octopus that was a hoop game. We played it at the party. Guests asked, "Why tako, octopus?" They thought it was funny that we think an octopus is scary.
