An abundance of pumpkins and gourds stack up and gather round an entryway, casting a welcoming spell for a fall soiree as well as trick-or-treaters.
1. Start with seven pale pumpkins (naturally white varieties include 'Lumina', 'Valenciano', and 'Casper') in graduated sizes.
2. Draw an easily visible letter on each pumpkin using black and silver permanent markers. Set up a galvanized container and a stake, sized to provide a secure base for the totem. Anchor the pot by filling it with sand.
3. Cut small entry holes in the bottoms of the pumpkins and remove the stems to make it easier to stack them on the stake and form the totem.
