    General Halloween
    Hi All, I have seen the various threads about water/weatherproofing props but still could use some help. Last year I made a few props that didn't last even a week in the rainy conditions of the general Seattle area. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for me or maybe pointed to what I did...

    I'm trying to figure out how far to take our exterior Halloween decor, so I thought I'd come to you guys for help. Our house is very old and has a bit of a dark history. When we bought it, it was literally falling down. The first year we lived at the house, the exterior was still unpainted...
