Pirate Wreck/ Undersea theme 2016 (WIP)

Thought I'd start keeping track of my burgeoning pirate themed Halloween this year and start condensing everything into one thread before I get carried away. So all my future props and bits and bobs will be in one place.

I've started doing the top level of my garden as part of a sunken wreck, with the eventual added bonus of being a pirate themed play area / walk-through for my son. Hopefully I'll have top part being the wreck, second level being a pirate tavern of sorts, and the bottom as some sort of voodoo jungle. (IF I GET AROUND TO IT!) Still have the inside of the house to do also!

I had some railway sleepers hanging around so decided to use them as a base for part of the hull and to add a step up in height. I'm using pallets for the deck and my brother gave me an old window he was chucking out as some sort of hold which I will fill with play sand and some fun things for my boy to dig up. I need to make a grated lid for that too so my cats don't do their business in it!

I also picked up a decorative wagon wheel from B&M for £5.99, reduced from £20. This I will use for the ships wheel once I mount it properly somewhere. (Just mucking about in pics hanging it on a nail.

Don't mind the mess!

You might find something of use in Asda - they have a range of Luau style summer décor - should be going on clearance soon - Tiki Idols, candle holders, etc
Tell me about it - I'm on the North East Yorkshire coast - wasn't bad last year though
