Thanks for the kind words Dana. Keep it up and my head won't fit thru any doors.:)
The pumpkin canes I made used LEDs with 2 AA batteries and a 10 ohm resistor hid in the handle. I found the circuit design online. The light is more decorative than useful. It also turns out there isn't enough meat in the handles where they meet the pumpkins. I broke one I was using. A design flaw on my part. I plan to re-drill the handles and add a piece of pipe inside to fix them. I haven't done it yet because I know it's going to be a pain.
Flashlight canes have been around since at least the 1930s in various styles, including one really hideous modern one I remember seeing. I don't know how practical they are as a light source ( I prefer headlamps over flashlights these days) but the older ones are pretty cool. Louie's idea is good.
