I have most of my decorations up and will be working on the graveyard this weekend. this is my second year and I think it's a vast improvement from last year. I've gotten lots of comments from my neighbors and I see lots of smiles as people walk by and check it out. Let me know what you think!

Thanks to everyone who has inspired me over the past year to create handmade props. Spooky Blue was the inspiration for the paper mache pumpkins, and Jimmyzdc was the inspiration for the PVC Candles.

Here's the link to the Album...

I love it! My husband and I were busy yesterday cranking out window boards too! Can't wait to put them up. Did you use Velcro dots as others have mentioned, or did you do something else? Love your overall creepy, classy look!

I used the 3M picture hangers that are similar to Velcro. Best part is they are easy to use and have that pull tab that will remove them easily and with no damage.

Thanks so much! I love the candles too; they really were fun to make and what an impact to the overall look!! I made approximately 49 candles from three 9' pipes and have placed them all over the house and porch.

The paper mache pumpkins took a bit of time, but now that they're out I love them even more! Worth all the time it took to make them!! I can't wait to do more next year.

Thanks Black Fog. The pumpkin how-to was found on Spookyblue.com. Just look for "The Moth Brothers" . I made mine with balloons as the base, but otherwise followed the how-to step by step. Have fun!!

Wonderful job! I definitely have to do the boarded up windows. I didn't do that big of a display this year...yet. But it's still early and you have definitely inspired me to do more.
