  10. Silt Fence??

    Halloween Props
    Does anybody use silt fence as their fencing or barrier in their haunt? I was thinking of using it for my woods walk thru since it's cheap, rolls up, and the wooden stakes are already attached. The only problem is that it doesn't exactly scream Halloween or creepy. So I was just wondering if...
