    I wanted to share the final result of this year's yard display. We call it "Starlight Cemetery." It's been steadily growing, with a new project (or three) each year. This year I shifted themes slightly. To that end, I created the main sign for the haunt, the lighted crypts and did some overall...

    Hi, new here. I’m looking to find (ideally a finished product purchase) a motorized prop that doesn’t necessarily need theme already applied.
