    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.

    jbaum replied to a thread Static: Ships Mast Question in Halloween Props
    Use a pvc sleeve burried in the ground that your mast can slide into. I have a 10 foot mast by my pond and it has been up all year. My pirate flag is now looking well worn. Your sails may have to have slits in it the keep the wind from flying it away. I use the same concept with my 20' Christmas tree.

    I put fiber fill in mine with green lights underneath and got the effect I wanted. Fluff the fill and it looks good

    "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)
