Halloween Totems front porch

I switched the urns on the front porch to some Jack O'Lanterns totems.
I had one of the larger lanterns for several years, and found the matching one at Goodwill last year.
The 2 smaller ones I found on my shopping trip with Kath.

I used a piece of styrofoam between the 2 and covered it with silk leaves also from the same trip.

I also duct taped some leaves inside the rim of the urn.

Then I added a Dollar Tree tinsel Jack to the inside of my front door wreath.

Candy, your front porch entry looks great and I love the Jack O'Lanterns totems in your urns. The night shot is a pretty picture. The glitter pumpkin looks great in the center of your wreath. Keep on shoppin', I Love It!

Your Jack O' Lantern porch turned out super! Kids coming to your door are going to love it all. Heck, their parents will too! You've inspired me to do my front porch urn with pumpkins next season. (have to buy them on sale after this one ends).

hugs, Karen

Love your pumpkin patch & looks so inviting at night. The glitzy Jack-o-lantern face really makes your wreath sparkle! Love the totems & looks like you even cut a pumpkin to fit over the light! Jan

Punk, Karen, Jane, Jeanne, Luvs, You are all the best!! I really appreciate your comments.

Jan, I used a kids trick or treat pumpkin, split it up the back and cut out the bottom and slipped it over the outside light. I have another post showing a similar treatment on my garage carriage lights, using witch hats on top of the pumpkins. They look really cute when the lights are turned on!

Thanks everyone,
Candy

I love the creative totems flanking the door. The glitter accent to the wreath adds just the right touch.
Very welcoming :).
