I know I don't have much more time. I have been so busy building new props this year.
I want to do something extra to the exterior for the entrance to our haunted house.
Please share your ideas and photos.

Don't have photo, but I've always wanted to do the large open mouth with the face above. I have seen several variations - clowns, monsters, witch, etc... and it would be fun to do.

Main entrance is just a large enough opening for everyone to walk through but have the eyes up there, maybe a nose that is 3D (clown nose would be a large round object, build a simple projection for a witch's nose to crook over people as the walked in). The haunted house that I grew up with had a facade like that with the nose extending out over 10 feet above the wait line and they hooked a sprinkler up in one of the nostrils and periodically sprayed the folks in line - lots of screams even before getting inside!

Could even do a carpet tongue that leads inside.

I'm doing a huge face on my garage facade next year. The opening is going to have teeth along the top and bottom and I'm getting some really cool lightup eyes...

You may not get a ton of responses... it's the busy busy busy season and lots of people are off working on stuff. ;)

Give it a little time!

Would have been funnier had they timed it with the sound of a sneeze. Lol

Yes everyone will be busy. Have you tried search yet? There are a lot of simple yet nice entrances on here.
