Quick - Jack o' Lantern


These photos were taken on Oct 30, 2022 at 2:07 PM.


The location was at my home in Beltsville, MD.


The "Take It!" came about as I realized I needed an outside decoration to attract Trick or Treater's.


A visit to my trash brought about the repurposing of an item that was in the recycle bin that I hope will do the job.


The led light came from Harbor Freight and was inexpensive.


I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween.


All my best,

    My daughter LOVED this idea and asked me to buy these tubs next time I go to the store.

    This is adorable, the kindergarten and 1st grade teachers at my school would love this idea.

    We did something very similar with a big Home Depot bucket.

    Thank you to everyone for your great comments. The photo/story was an easy way to pop in a subject that was close to the Holiday. I am very glad - some think they will duplicate the proposal for future years for themselves. The standard Tide Pods containers work very well. I am going to take this basic concept and add some more detailing to it - to make it more stand out.
    Am hoping everyone is setting up for a safe and joyful Thanksgiving.
    Wishing everyone my very best. Bruce
