Halloween Fun

The kids just love these, we have used their pails as each one grew out of trick or treating stages.

Now they have kids of their own and make these fun covers for their own home.

It' s a really nice tradition to set.


Purchase two Pumpkin trick or treat pails, that have a handle these can be removed or left on for hanging. (I remove them and just snap them on)

They can be found at most dollar stores.

Any color pumpkin you like is fine, we always choose the orange color but they have them in various colors.

On the back of the pumpkin, cut down the center from top to bottom, with the tin snips and remove the bottom,.

They will slip right on when you open it up side ways to slip over the porch light.

If your porch lights are extra-large you may have to cut more off  the bottom  to fit.
