I added Sea salt to my water bottles and they take longer to freeze but they last longer too.
I have a 10 foot 4" pipe and I (electrical) Taped the holes off.
I hide my fogger in a foam crypt. and use 6 bottles in and 6 in the freezer on a rotation. of every 4 hours or so.
I also add a grate to the end of the pipe to avoid finding critters hiding or living in there.
Yes. No problem. Congratulations on taking the first step! What I have learned is that even mistakes can turn out to be the best props. So get in there and pull those ideas out of your head and make them reality!
Your stones look great. The contrasting colors is a really good point. Sometimes also adding a few reddish stones to the white and grey can provide additional contrast. Real graveyards have lots of different styles of stones made with different types of stones with different colors. Also I am in awe of your letter carving skills. The letters are so crisp and well defined. Do you use an exact opposite knife to get those clean edges?
StaceyLynne...the spotlights are from Home Depot. They are Colored LED spotlights that sold as Holiday spotlights. They may have them online. If not, they come out in Sept/Oct in the Christmas section. I believe they are the same as the ones sold by Spirit but cheaper. Also Home Depot had some cheap pose and stay skeletons last year as well. Hope this helps
I use pose and stay skeletons from Costco and 5 foot piece of steel electrical conduit. I paint the conduit black. I pound the conduit into the ground about 8 inches and use white zip ties to tie skeleton to the conduit. At night you don't see the black conduit. It is a cheap and easy solution. The hardest part is cutting the conduit to size. That can be done with a jigsaw or hacksaw. Hope this helps.
