  1. Halloween 2016

    Halloween 2016

    This year I decided to dig up the headstones from the year before. We buried them so they were even more awesome the next year. They were covered in moss and egg sacs! Pretty cool. I also made a giant cauldron and painted bottles to decorate the porch like potions. Little kids loved it! The...
  2. Starting to freak out already!

    General Halloween
    That darn "35 Days" sign up there isn't helping any! Friday is my Spawn's birthday. I always start to set up the cemetery the day after. However, she is turning 21. This means Thursday night at midnight, the hubby & I will be taking her out for her first "legal" adult beverage. Friday...
  3. Realistic Mini Tombstones made of Cement

    For Sale By Merchants
    Hey guys, I make little things out of cement, and my newest creation is mini tombstones. They're 3.5" tall, and have weathered marks on then like cracks and unevenness. They're pretty heavy and heavy duty as well - I use a special mix of cement with rebar. Let me know what you think...
  4. Prop Showcase: Ghouliet & Lil Ghouliette's 2015/2016 Headstones & Other Props Thread

    Halloween Props
    Woo. Its been a while since I made one of these threads. Making new headstones kinda got put on hold for a couple years between wedding planning/wedding and Ghouliet's multiple foot operations that left her feeling humbuggy. So even though the 2015 prop building season is almost over, I'm going...

  6. Wooden Headstones and Crosses

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    We have a couple of wooden headstones and crosses for Halloween. The headstones are pretty big. I would ship them with the crosses in the middle of the headstones and wrapped in bubble wrap and heavy shipping plastic. I don't think there would be a box big enough for them. I'm asking 60.00 for...

  8. Static: Help with headstones?

    Halloween Props
    Hello fellow haunters - quick question about gluing styrofoam and PVC for headstones. I need to glue two 2-inch thick styrofoam (pink) slabs together, with PVC pipes in between to use for attachment to rebar. I bought glidden gripper to join the styrofoam, but will it work for the PVC too...
  9. Static: Are your tombstones real?

    Halloween Props
    My husband took the list of all those who had be hanged in Washington State since the 1800's, so our tombstones are murders, rapists, and thiefs of our state. A little creepy, I know, but I guess it's a history lesson.... Does anybody else use real names?
