  1. Halloween Props
    Ok, now that I can start planning for next year, was wondering if anyone has a source Or if people share their tombstone patterns? I'm looking for the "inner" detail patterns, not the general tombstone shape, though probably be nice to share those if people have them as well. Thanks

    So, I have been having more and more issues with people walking through the yard display to get pictures either with props or in my yard. If I had a section for that it's ok, and we will usually have one or two props easily accessible for this reason. However its getting worse over the years...

    I've been lurking for a while but finally settled on a username and decided to join. This year I decided to go much bigger on my yard, I'm working on a somewhat realistic giant spider with a 12' legspan and a creeper. I have a fairly small yard, so I'm limited on how much I can add, but if I end...

  11. Halloween Props
    This pallet wood pumpkin project was so easy to do from start to finish. It started with the last pallet wood I had disassembled last year. Then I scavenged from the kids craft paint stash. Some dry brushing the paint on and swiping it off and it was done in time for the little trick or...
