Make a pumpkin totem pole (via

One thing I have learned about holiday decorations to use in Halloween crafts at Dollar Tree is that they go fast But there is also something else I have learned about holiday decor:  that you can make it out of almost anything!  Mollie’s Mom made this adorable Halloween Craft — a Jack-o-lantern totem pole out of things that you can find year-round, using items like burner covers and serving platters to create an array of silly pumpkin faces. Turn this into a family project by having each family member paint their own pumpkin face!  [how to make a pumpkin totem pole]
