I have a very long driveway and don't usually decorate because there is no electricity there. I do however, have snow sticks along both sides of the driveway. Since the snow sticks have already been put up for this winter I decided to decorate them for Halloween by turning them into lighted pumpkin stakes.

These stakes are extremely easy to make and very cheap.

Materials: (for 1 stake)

2" x 2" x 4' stake - We have used these stakes for a few years, not sure how much they cost but they weren't expensive.
Trick-or-Treat pumpkin - $1
Solar landscape light - $1 at the Dollar Store
Duct Tape-   couple bucks for a large roll
sledge hammer

Step 1: Step 1

Drill a hole off center.  The hole on my pumpkins was closer to the front but centered from left to right.
I think the night photos are great, especially the ones with the moon behind the pumpkins. Thanks for sharing this idea. I might just have to make one for my yard next year.
This is a good one for the 'I can make that!' contest! I could make this! Thanks for sharing. So cool!
That's such a great idea. :D
