  1. A new look for our yard

    General Halloween
    The mermaid skeleton came! She is gorgeous!!! Rather than a typical bone color, she is kind of grayish, with a bendy tail. She'll certainly look better than our old mermaid, which was a regular Bucky type, with a homemade tail. Due to a house move, we couldn't Halloween last year, and when I...

    Halloween Props
    /scratches head. I know this sounds like a stupid question (and maybe it is) but-I don't have a truck-and I have to believe that I'm not the only one;) I can't find anywhere that will deliver the foam board used to make tombstones etc for a sane price. So that makes things a little difficult...

  14. Static: Spiderweb Question

    Halloween Props
    Hey gang! I'm hoping to finish a giant spider this year, to sit on the roof of my covered porch. I'd like to give her a web, but I think given the size and shape of the space, I'd prefer a triangle to a full circle. The idea would be to anchor it at the roof by the spider, and stretch it out...
