    Hello! I am Justin and I too am new. Last year I was finally able to build my first Halloween display. The beginnings of a graveyard with a few homemade pop-up ghouls. Overall the neighborhood enjoyed it.

    It my breaks my heart, but due to health issues and relocation, it is time for me to sell my vintage Halloween funeral hearse and skeleton horse. Handcrafted by a superior carpenter, the carriage comes apart for easy storage. The lights work! Skeleton horse makes a scary noise and eyes light up...

    Hello! Longtime lurker, first-time poster, here. With time winding down before Halloween (cough), I thought I'd finally go ahead and become a member. I've only been yard decorating for about four years and have really enjoyed decorating over the past two Halloweens now that I own my own home...

    My wife and I went out looking the other night...nothing. It was a bit disappointing - the neighborhood has grown up over the years but there are still some kids around. We, on the other hand, stand out like a light house in a fog bank. We figure the neighbors all talk about us, but I'd rather...

    We bought a new house in January and getting ready to setup for this year next weekend. i am sure a lot of people have been here, but nervous for the new neighborhood to see what we do. Not only hoping it goes over well, but the yard is so much different really don't know where to start or how...

    I've been stalking the pirate threads for a few months but just getting around to joining. I've always wanted to do a cool haunt but have never been able to justify the time or expense. I have two small boys who are obsessed with pirates so the wheels started spinning and I justified it to the...

    So, I just moved into this neighborhood last year in October, but didn't do a whole lot in my yard because I didn't have time to plan much. This year I decided to go all out. My yard is now almost done and, of course, I'm the only one that has anything up. Seriously, not even a pumpkin in...

    On my daily commute, I've seen one yard completely decorated, one house hedge-row with spider webs, and one yard with that cool full sized horse and rider skeleton and accompanying skellie dog. I only have fall decor so far- corn stalks Autumn leaves garland on the mailbox, and a few happy...

    Hello Everyone! I'm currently living in Ohio! I'm new to the forum. Halloween is my favorite holiday. My neighbors and I have been hosting a neighborhood haunted house for the past 7 years, we build a lot of our own props. We have a great time making Halloween as Magical as possible for the...

    My friends/family wanted me to put together a video of this years haunt since they are always so surprised that our neighborhood gets 2000+ people on Halloween (600+ TOTs, parents, siblings, etc...). I thought I would share it here...

    After being gone all last year! Moving across country we are back to being members of the forum. We built a Great Pumpkin in 2014 (pic attached). Since we have a new neighborhood we are going to try the great pumpkin a second time. We will try to add pictures throughout the process. :)

    Well it has been a long two weeks and several new props and a completely new fence but we have managed to get our decorations all up and running. Still have a couple small props to finish and the little details to enhance it all but it is looking good. Many from around the neighborhood...

    :D I think I am the first in my neighborhood to have Halloween decorations up. My countdown sign was put up yesterday and the countdown has started for my yard. I had to touch up some paint on the sign because the last two years have taken a toll on it, but it's back in top form now. I am adding...

    Through the past few years I've noticed people who have said their ToTer numbers were dwindling, but one thing I don't think I've seen as much of - but which I was really surprised to note this year - was that in my neighborhood, we had more ToTers (probably because it was a Saturday), but WAY...

    I need a new trick for Halloween this year. In the past I have done the old hand in the candy bowl thing. It worked fairly well and the neighborhood got a kick out of it. You can see how that went in this video: But the neighborhood is on to that gag, so I need something new. Anyone have...
  17. General Halloween
    I want to be very clear on this: I do NOT view decorating as a competition. Halloween, or C word. We have a new neighbor moved in just around the corner. "We're going to be your competition this year!" were literally their first words to me. This was good natured ribbing, to be honest...

    Hey everyone, I'm so excited and amazed at everything that I see on this website. This will be our first year to do a larger haunt so I've been on here looking for ideas. The last neighborhood that we lived in no one really trick-or-treat it there. We would put out a few pumpkins and scary...

    Hello! I'm Jeff. I have been a long time lurker to the forum and Halloween prop builder for years. I feel that Halloween props in front of your house should be of the type that make the neighborhood children run past your house with eyes averted on their way to the bus. My Halloween...

    Glad to be apart of this great site. Not sure how long I've been lurking. Up front, thanks everyone for all your creative ideas and passion that helps fuel the celebration of Halloween. As a child I loved the simplest things parents did to decorate the porch to give a kids a scare. The season...
