Once the grandest house on the block, this multistory pumpkin mansion now features rickety shutters and boarded-up doors and windows. Cheesecloth ghosts wander the barren yard; lights illuminate the carved details, including the ghoulish residents.
These glimmering oversize ornaments seem to be falling from the sky. Each is made by hand-twisting rope lights, using our template as a guide. Hang them from their cords (disguised with ribbon) at varying heights along a porch or under the eaves of the house.
