  5. Static: Pallet Pumpkin

    Halloween Props
    This pallet wood pumpkin project was so easy to do from start to finish. It started with the last pallet wood I had disassembled last year. Then I scavenged from the kids craft paint stash. Some dry brushing the paint on and swiping it off and it was done in time for the little trick or...

  8. Haunted Doll House

    Halloween Props
    Hubby & I have been working on the haunted doll house for a few years. We originally bought the doll house for our daughter at a flea market $25 but when we opened the box we found out that it was water damaged.

  9. Static: Vulture pattern

    This might be the last one of these patterns I make this year ( or until another idea hits me lol). It was the same process as the spider and cat. Here is the maquette. I want the finished one to be about 3' tall. I'll post pics of the assembled piece and pics of it when it is filled out and...

  11. Building a Haunt

    General Halloween
    I enjoy the planning and execution stages of my haunt as much as the 'reveal'. How much do you plan in advance? Is it a months long process to plan and build or do you madly rush to finish the last week of October? Share your process and current pics if you have some to show your progress to...

  16. Other: Clear matte finish weather proofing for large wall panels?

    Halloween Props
    I have 3 large 4 X 8 wall panels that I need to weather proof. I need the coating to be a clear matte finish and relatively easy to apply to large surfaces. I did a search on the forum and saw that clear polyurethane is often used for small projects. Can it be used for large projects? If so...
  17. Static: Meet Norm the wolf

    Halloween Props
    I just finished the top half of Norm today and I want to share. I think he turned out OK. I guess I could have spent a little more time on the paint, but when I saw the finish line I sprinted the whole way in. There are progress pics in my 2015 Album if you want to see more..

  20. It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown theme

    General Halloween
    Hi All, Here is this year's "haunt", if you would even call it that... Everything was created with 1/4" plywood and acrylic paints. I first sketched the images on wood, then cut the outlines with a jig saw and mixed paint to match the colors as closely as I could. I used a matte finish spray...
