    So this year, we are doing a "carnevil" theme ... it will mostly be outside, but I wanted to do something carnevil in the bathroom as well.

  5. Other: light up carnevil sign - help

    Halloween Props
    I would like to make the letters individually and punch the lights through. My thought is to use foam core board and poster board. I would hot glue the poster board to the edges of the foam core to create a frame and then spray paint it. My question is, how do I waterproof this since it will be...

  16. Static: Human Cannon idea - would love some input
