Doorstep Decor: Build a Pumpkin Tower
This project is the perfect way to add a little Halloween decor to your front porch and make sure that your friends can find your house on Halloween night. This creative and functional use for jack-o-lanterns is brought to us by Michaels Crafts. It's super simple and looks great.
You'll carve out each number on a medium size craft pumpkin, and top it off with a small jack-o-lantern. You can use any font for the numbers by just printing them out and transferring them to the pumpkin. The pumpkins are held together with a wooden dowel, and placed in a decorated terracotta pot.
They look like they are just barely balancing which is part of the effect, but you'll still need to be careful and they are best kept away from children. While you may have some materials on hand, everything is available at Michaels, and the instruction page walks you through the whole project. The entire project will take about 2 hours.
Everybody will take a second look at your pumpkin house numbers. It is among the most innovative and useful Halloween decorations I've seen this season.
