These look great! Love how graphic things are (I don't mean in a gore way). I don't think I realized until I saw this thread just how much fun you could have with the theme, design-wise. It's so tempting.

But then there would be clowns. :(

Anyway, really amazing and inspiring stuff.

Everything looks just super Rania!!!! :)
Do you do most of the building or do you have a team? If you have a team how many folks are you lucky enough to have working on these projects? Do you do most of the design work or is that collaborative as well?

Thank you so much!

My husband does the carpentry for me, with the exception of the signs. I won't let anyone near those :) Most of the design work is from me. I am responsible for the overall vision, set details and a lot of the paint. I have some help on the paint though and my husband created the clown on the jack in the box lid. We have a good team developing over here.

No midway games yet?

Kids love interactive candy collection. Last time I did the carnival theme, I made them play a game to get the candy as a prize for winning. I took a sheet of plywood, attached a torso to it, dressed up in tattered ruins, and cut some holes where the head, arms and legs would be, then finished it by using red paint to simulate blood drips and splatters. I had a bunch of wicker baskets with heads, two hands and two feet in them. I'd hand a basket to a child, tell them they had to get just one body part through a hole and they'd win their trick or treat candy and they had five tries to win. I had a line to play all night long.
