    Default Where to buy seaweed, netting, other ocean type decorations?

    I am doing an underwater theme for one room for my Halloween party. I want to drape seaweed/kelp over the mirror and curtains but I can't figure out where to buy fake seaweed. I'm also looking for netting that looks like fishing nets. Does anyone know where I could find that stuff, or any other underwater/ocean type decor?

    Hey! Neat idea. I just bought some green jute from Halloween City...it looks great. I'm using it for a swamp theme, so it might do well for your theme!

    Also, I don't know where you could find this prop, but I saw the best prop ever...a dead mermaid looking thing...at Taylor Maid stores in Utah. That would be something for your party for sure!
    I've put more thought into my Halloween costume than my career.

    For small pieces of seaweed, shells, coral, etc. try used aquarium decorations. (I'd say new, but that stuff is awfully expensive for its size at retail).

    The Dollar Tree has the animals that grow in water: shark, turtle, alligator, seahorse, starfish. Seaweed's a tough one, any way you can use twisted green crepe paper? Maybe in low lighting it wouldn't look so cheesy. Or I think Asian markets sell seaweed but I'm not sure of the price.

    I used these types props once and got a lot of my supplies from Hobby Lobby.

    Thanks, I'll try those places guys!
    It's going to be a Bioshock/underwater theme so like a place that has been forgotten under the ocean.

    I am still looking for some long pieces of seaweed/kelp decoration like this:

    I've never found any decent prop seaweed, so I made a mold from real seaweed and cast it in latex :
    Good luck with your haunt
