Nice cannons, too bad it doesn't look like there's a hole in the barrel. Also looks to me from the website that the $250 is for the cannon only and doesn't include the carriage. Please correct me if I'm wrong about that.
Wow... if you can't afford $250, you might not want to be doing a pirate theme to start with. Also, you might want to consider putting away a little money each month if you're going to get serious about Halloween to begin with. I don't try to buy all my decoration needs in September/October with the money I have on hand. I know I'm going to need $500-$1,000 and put away $50-$100 each month for that purpose.
I couldn't afford $250 for an entire yard! lol I build most of my stuff from clearance sales and garbage bins. If I could get away with it I would spend more, but I guess I'm just not serious enough about it. Just another lowly home haunt with bills to pay and kids to feed.
I hear ya Nightfisher , although I do spend a bit on stuff , to say you have to spend big bucks on props you could build from cheap foam "to be serious about Halloween " wow...I'm glad we were set straight.
I got the idea from another forum member, so of course I don't mind! The end of the cannon is a plastic bowl with a styrofoam ball glued on. The cannon balls are big Christmas balls. The wheel hubs are styrofoam, also, with a dowel rod holding them together. Wheels pull apart for easy storage. I also made a small one ( about 2 feet long) that sits on a non rolling base like a small stair, also made of foamboard.
