    Quick easy and relatively cheap walls for a garage. I used zip ties to hang these 9x12 tarps from the rafters of my garage and they were perfect. Each tarp was under $12. Much cheaper than wooden walls and easier to take down adn store away...
  10. WHEN DOES YOUR PLANNING START FOR HALLOWEEN 2020?

    General Halloween

  11. Keep going?

    General Halloween
    I am done for the year and probably until next July. I have fun making stuff but get so obsessive and consumed that I need to cut myself off completely after Halloween. I do write down any ideas I have in the note program on my phone. It gives me plenty to consider once July gets here.
  12. Now that the dust has settled, how many hours did you put into your Halloween scene this year?

    General Halloween
    Take down = 10 hours give or take Turning the garage into a museum= 12 hours give or take Creating stories for haunted objects= 7 hours give or take Setting up front lawn display= 25 hours give or take. building/refurbishing props this year.......= 150-250 hours. Total= 204-304 hours give or take.
