Intro: Jack-o-lantern Driveway Lights

An inexpensive way to dress up your driveway for Halloween. This first photo's a bit blurry due to the long exposure. Night shot with no flash or tripod.

Step 1: Materials

Get a bunch of plastic trick-or-treat buckets. Turns out they're about the same height as most low-voltage driveway lights.

Step 2: Modification

Cut a hole in the bottom on each bucket. These things are usually so flimsy that a sturdy pair of scissors will slice right through them. It doesn't have to be perfect; no one will see it. I cut a semicircle so that the bucket would still hold its shape.

Step 3: Assembly

Shove the bucket over the driveway light. Two photos here: with and without a flash. Sure you could go through the trouble of getting the cap of the light to fit the bucket exactly but it really doesn't make that much difference.

    Clever, easy and inexpensive. I like it. Can also be adapted to many styles of lights.

    I think it would look a bit better if you lift them a little bit to hide the actual lamp post. Nice and easy idea although.

    or couldn't you just push the lamps down further into the ground?
