Hello zipp, welcome to the forum,. Awesome work you have there, it's hard to believe it is your first time setting anything up. I love the idea of using the gemmy snowman to use as a prop !! Where in Michigan are you from? We have quite a few of us, it's great we are getting more!!!
Yes, this is my first try at a Halloween display.
I have wanted to do something for some time and had been collecting things for the past few years.
Each year I would go buy what I could find after Halloween at huge discounts and store it away for future use.
When I found the Gemmy snowmen for only $20.75 I could not pass up that deal, so I picked up a few of them.
I still have a ton of things that I have not built or am still working on for next year.
BTW... the fence in the front yard came from Lowes. It was clearance priced and since I bought all they had on hand it ended up costing $3 per 8 ft section.
