Decorate Your Door with a Jack-O’-Lantern Arch #ElectronicHalloween

Adafruit halloween2022 blog

If you’re looking to go big but not super spooky this Halloween this doorway arch from gabrielhalloween on Instructabels might be the exact inspiration you need. There’s so much to love about this concept – it’s easily adaptable for apartments and would also make a great wedding arch if that’s your thing.

Happy Halloween! Hello. I was feeling ambitious this year, so I decided to build an arch around my front door using foam craft pumpkins. It took me about eight hours to make by myself. I would highly recommend having someone to help. It was a fun project to build and I was very pleased with the outcome.

Check out the full build here and don’t miss the Adafruit Learning System for tons of Halloween content, pumpkins included:
