Pumpkin Totem

Stacked in graduated sizes, three carved pumpkins make a spectral lamppost. The rascal on the bottom peers up at the other two.


  1. Cut out the stem end of the bottom pumpkin plus a small hole in back for the light cord to exit; cut out the top and bottom of the middle pumpkin, and the base of the top one.

  2. Thread a string of white lights through the three, and place on a wall or gate (you may need an extension cord).
