  1. Static: Using natural tree branch for scarecrow pole

    Halloween Props
    If I were to make a scarecrow and choose to use a thick branch (e.g. 1.5") for the vertical pole of the cross, any tips on getting scarecrow to stand? I had the idea of inserting the branch into a couple foot section of 2" PVC. Then I would either build a base for the PVC (concrete block or...

    Halloween Props
    Hello There, Very new to this forum but I have a problem going on with my Pumpkin Nester Prop. :mad:I plug him in and he does not activate as normal.

    General Halloween
    I usually just let people walk thru my yard as they come and wish to at their own pace.
