    Halloween Props

    Halloween Props
    I want to put about 20 carved foam pumpkins on the stairs in front of our house but I don't want to mess with turning on and off those little battery powered puck lights in each and every one every night for a month.

  8. Static: Tombstone Problems! Help!

    Halloween Props
    To keep our tombstones in the ground we use tent pegs but this causes the tombstones (made of styrofoam) to break apart, look awful and make a huge mess in the winds. Any ideas? :D
