Bethany, I can't wait! I'm going to start hoarding packing material. I've got a bunch of that lying around from props, so might as well break it out and then re-pack the props with bubble wrap. I'm thinking something like this:
I can play with the Dremel and the hot wire foam cutter and then break out the Great Stuff. Then, I want to paint it with UV reactive paints and fire up the black lights!
You guys always have such great ideas!! I love to look at your albums pics for inspiration too... Anyway, I've got (at most) three high unholy holidays left in Cheverly before I move to way-Southern Ohio and will have zero TOTers. So, the themes for the remaining years are blacklight pirates (2015); our tenth wedding anniversary - so lots of dressed up skels(2016) and finally; a blow-out Cheverly Hillbillies (2017).
The only things I need for this year are UV reactive paints and lots of...
Thanks for the post Jersey! I'm going to try the Woodland Scenics Hot Wire Foam Cutter. Amazon has it for $30, including prime shipping. I want to make a background using foam core insulation and scrap white foam for a mermaid scene this year. Basically a pile of underwater rocks... For thirty bucks, I think I can chance the wire cutter.
Any chance you can move it up in front of the windows? And then add some signage over top of it. It gets kind of lost under the windows, so maybe your audience just thought it was part of the house? I love it - you did a great job. With some up lighting, you'll be able to see the names so I would think that some of the adults at least would know what it is.
I love my Dremel with all the bells and whistles. Hubby got it for me!
I'm thinking that I need a wire foam cutter too this year... I've got (at most) three seasons left before we move waaaaaaaaaaaaaay the hell out in the boonies and will have zero chance at TOTers, so these last three years have to be kick ***!!
