So, the other day my wife says, "Hey, I think it would be really cool if we could board up those extra windows on the house that are too small to really put props in! That would look awesome for Halloween!) and of course, I agreed. So I started looking around and I haven't found too much in the way of tutorials on how people do this. I found one about making boards out of foam, but I'm worried about the Kansas winds tearing those down really easily.
I also read about making them out of fence pickets, and making a frame for it and hanging the frame in front of the actual window, but I assume that would get really heavy.
So I know a lot of you out there do this...so what are your methods for attaching the boards to the windows? Do you make frames to just cover the windows? Do you just screw pallet wood to the window frames and actually board them up? Just looking for some creative options out there from people who've done this.
