    I use carbon paper and a stylist ball pen to outline then use the Dremel tool.

    Meltyface - Looks good so far, a black base coat and then the dry brush top coat and you're ready. Berserker - If you have brick you can use brick clips and fishing line to hold them in place. I also place a piece of foam on the vertical sides and use a #8 finish nail to hold them. On my Hardy siding I use cup hooks to attach the fishing line, they also make clips for vinyl siding. You can hot glue the horizontal boards to the vertical ones for more support

    I don't like to do gory either. We get a lot of ToT (2000 plus) of all ages. I go for the spooky feeling which insights a small amount of fear of the unknown in the grave yard. Last year we started singing monsters and that was a big hit. So spooky fun.

    If you just need the wire you could use a 26 gauge stranded wire. If you don't have any lurking in your scrap pile a old cat 5 computer patch cable will work. Strip the jacket off and you have a choice of colors. You will have to untwist them if you need a single wire.

    My fence went up last weekend with the blow mold skellys trick or treating and the corn stalks the weekend before that. Tombstones are this week. Didn't get a chance to work on anything this weekend since I was at halloween horror nights. Will set more during the week. My plan to have most stuff out on the Monday before except for a few items.

    "I just saw that you live in FWB so we have another haunter in the area. I live over by the golf course and would like to visit your haunt sometime. I just started setting everything for the year. So much to do and so little time. "

    Hey, that would be great! I'm actually in Crestview but FWB is just much more recognizable for most. Looks like we'll have a chilly Halloween this year if the forecasts are right. :O)
