  9. Sunken Pirate ship

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    This year we wanted to remove the tombstone and non pirate themed items from our yard since the front porch was all pirate last year. We decided that a sunken boat (similar to the size of the beginning of the first pirates movie would be about right). All of this had to be fairly light and...

We have Zero, Jack, Oogie Boogie, and the...
