    I actually have a pumpkin sentinel in the works, but I'm going to mount it on a flag pole holder to tree, so no worries about a stand. I'm trying to figure out by your photo: what is the pumpkin mounted on -- seems something wider than just PVC. And what did you use to make and secure the long stem?

    If I were to make a scarecrow and choose to use a thick branch (e.g. 1.5") for the vertical pole of the cross, any tips on getting scarecrow to stand? I had the idea of inserting the branch into a couple foot section of 2" PVC. Then I would either build a base for the PVC (concrete block or wood), or perhaps I could just slide the PVC onto some rebar (assuming there is enough room). For the record, this is going on my front lawn so I'm reluctant to use a fence post digger, but I may...

    Thanks for all the tips. I think I'll take the safer, easy way out and let the can sit outside for the next six months! I can reassess in September, but mostly the prop will be experienced at night where any rust is of little consequence.

    bluesjumper started a thread Pneumatic: Trash Can Trauma prop in Halloween Props
    This is my first pneumatic prop. Took quite a while to build but I think I nailed it. https://youtu.be/THqKUKv38cA

    I'm building a trash can trauma prop and want to weather the 31 gallon galvanized steel trash can, add some rust. I read somewhere that there is a youtube video on how to do this using muriatic acid. I can't seem to find that exact video. Anybody have tips on precisely what I need to do? (Do I use spray bottle or sponge? Do I need to dilute it? Do I let it sit there or eventually wipe off?)
