So this was laat year 2021 Halloween Display! I try to collect alot of older Spirit Props their stuff back then was way better then what they have now! I did a lil zombie baby area but I would honestly like to expand on that area by adding more babies, I really would want to add a crib or maybe even a merry-go round for the babies but not sure what I could use for the motor to make it turn. Any suggestions? Looking at the cemetery probably would add some columns but the way the walkway is kinda in a slope and it gets windy here in Southern California! Finally the skeleton guy was supposed to be and underworld theme but I did not get finish it maybe this year?? Any suggestions or tips?

I think your display looks wonderful! Especially love the groupings and the lighting.

For a merrygoround motor, if you are handy, you can use wiper motors. If you are not handy, check out the rotating x-mas tree stands. They are sometimes easy to find under $25 used, so don't jump immediately on the new ones that are $50+ (ouch!). This is my thread from many years ago about how to make a simple scarousel using one of those (pricing is definitely dated at this point) but you should get the general idea.
