    Can you describe the space? How much area do you have to work with? one car? two car?. Is the garage attached to your home or detached? We've used our garage before and now have a free standing structure that is 12' wide by 24' long. How many visitors do you normally have on Halloween? This would determine what you need to do for traffic flow (having both an entrance and exit door vs just a space where people walk in and look around. Give some more info and it would be easier to give...

    I have a length of waxed twine that I used for a handle on my latest one. I think it will hold up well. You an easily coat twine with beeswax to give it a protective quality. The twine handle was so much easier than the wire too!!

    It's about 19 inches between the wing tips. I recall these being sold by Big Lots a few years ago but haven't seen them since and not sure who makes them. I paid 10 for this and remember them being about $16.00 when new? Check ebay and also some of the online Halloween retailers to see if they still carry them. Might still be available.

    Stock photos of the three witch masks. I have Swamp Witch from Death Studios, pictured first. I think the other two will be a great compliment to her

    The movement of it reminds me of someone exercising in the gym--pulling on those ropes that lift the weights. I guess it's an alternative to an FCG if someone can't build their own. And hopefully it will last longer than one season of use.

    Well, if he likes them during the day, he'll probably get used to them in the nighttime as he gets older. I hope so. You can do a lot with window silhouettes.

    Really glad you posted this doto! I had thought of using a twine "handle" but was concerned over how it would hold up. For as much use as they'll see I think this might be the way to go and a lot easier than the wire. I still plan to make a few more hanging ones so will def give this a shot. Thanks my friend!

    Thanks! We're doing a witch theme this year so will be using these in place of the pvc candles we made last year. I'm happy with them but will wrap the wire handles in something to make them more organic looking.

    Not sure why the base coat is that color. I like these two masks as they have that old storybook witch look to them. I had Cackle a few years back and sold it to another haunter like a dummy so am getting another of her and also Meg. I have DS Swamp Witch so these will compliment that one nicely. The three have just enough differences between them so they don't all look alike. Can't wait to see them finished. My last copy of Cackle was thick as a tire! lol!

    Still have more to make but have a few done so far. Some will hang in trees and others will be placed in the front yard scene and in the haunt itself. I followed SK Austin's You tube tutorial and they really came out pretty good! Halloween How-To - Witch's Lanterns - YouTube

    Wasn't sure where to put this so figured here was good. These are two new masks being made for our haunt this year. Paul at DSS masks is doing some custom paint on them but he sent me this pic of them before paint and hair work. They are prepped and will soon be done and on their way to their new haunt home. I'll post some finished pics as well but just thought this was cool.

    Scored 8 rolls of jute netting and a neat wooden bowl from another haunter selling off some things. These will see good use in our witch house this year.

    I have 3 sets of (9) spider joints here to sell as seconds. There is nothing wrong with them other than they might have some discoloration or staining from production. The parts themselves are perfectly good, but we cannot sell them on our site. These are normally $3.50 each but I am selling these for $2 each plus shipping. Will be sold in lots of 9 which is the number needed for building a complete articulated body frame. Please PM me if you are interested and please include a shipping...
