  5. Mechanical: PVC armatures

    Halloween Props
    Hi! I'm new to this forum, and I'm looking to create a PVC armature that's animated. I know there's a website that makes them, but $150 for just the frame is pretty steep.

    Halloween Props
    Picked up these last year from HD and was inspired as our house has a cemetery theme. I wanted to mount them on the columns on either side of our front door so I cut the back of the skulls off using a jig saw and then epoxied a piece of wood towards the top to act as a mount. Originally they...
  10. Static: Epitaph Wall

    Halloween Props
    So I made this a number of years ago. It will (eventually) span all the way across the porch (hopefully next year) BUT i have a small problem.
