Halloween is more than just passing out candy for Jennifer and Junior Owens. They chose to display their creative side by building an addition to their front porch.


Using recycled materials, scrap and some necessities purchased from local hardware stores, they crafted a giant spooky clown to display across the front of their home.


By spending nearly $200 and countless hours of work on their creation they have built something that even neighbors from adjacent neighborhoods can view from their homes.


This has become a labor of love for them.


Jennifer said she has plans to sew clown costumes for their yard zombie apocalypse to transform them to match their clown theme for the season, while Junior wires the lighting and artistically paints extras by hand.


“Neighbors have been really supportive and give encouraging words while we’re out building and they drive by. I think there are some people that are looking forward to seeing it finished other than us,” said Owens.


They got this idea from a neighbor who elaborately decorated their home and with some tweaking and creativity the Owens family was able to put their personal spin on the decorations. They don’t have a set date for completion because as quickly as they dream up a spooky addition they begin to craft something new for their yard.
