    Halloween Props
    One of my students suddenly got a dream job and packed up and moved in 2 weeks flat. They went through a major downsizing and were kind enough to gift me their extra halloween items. And as grateful as I am I don't really know what to do with these. Here are 9 small Spirit store tombstones...
  5. Floral Foam signs for wreaths

    This year I'm venturing into wreaths. After adding ribbons, picks and props, I wanted to personalize. Came up with the idea of doing a "Happy Halloween" pick up top, and a "from the {lastname}" and customizing them for neighbors. Not finished, obviously, but the idea is to carve some foam...

    Halloween Props
    Has anyone ever worked with funkins? I'm looking to carve some extra large funkins and place them atop my cemetery pillars. I'm curious if anyone has left them outside and how they hold up, especially after carving. If I'm planning on spending about $25 per pumpkin, I'd like to make sure...
