Will some people please post some roof-top pictures of things they have done to their roofs? My roof is always pretty bare and I could use a lot of ideas! Thanks in advance!

I always stick props up there, here are some pics.
The first kinda stinks, but he was up above the garage door. Need to cover the lights better for next time I think.





Here was one in daylight. We change up this prop's costumes/poses every yr.

Yes I love to decorate the roof over my porch and I want to decorate the 2nd story roof as well. I put some small posed 33" budget buckies, a scary doll that looks like Regan from the exorcist and a black cat/vulture up on the roof too. I also have a ghoul that looks like he is coming out of the window. I attach my buckies to the shutters so they dont blow off from the wind. I can also attach them using sturdy twine/string and put the end of it in the closed window. That is also how I keep my home made prop guy from falling off the porch as well. Hes great and can be posed/dressed many ways. His costume/pose is changed every yr. Well worth the effort to make him. I also use him at Xmas time dressed up as the grinch. He is a huge hit in the neighborhood. I have him tangled up in Xmas lites.

I also use the plastic window Silhouettes of Jason,Freddie and some saying up on 2nd story windows to complete the look. I dont have pics of those unfortunatly.

You can also stick some home made ghosties up there as well as stuffed body parts, home made dead guy laying on the roof. Add some punkins too. Real or fake. You can also use halloween lites up there too, either hanging off the house, or draped across the roof for special effect or to light a specific prop. You can also add a big spider and cob web or some of the stretchy webbing too.

I also have a fragile skeleton that can blow over in the wind and break. For 2 yrs I stuck him in an upstairs window and just put a light on in the room behind him. All you could see from the street was an outline of something scary looking out the window.

I really really want to make a witch and put her up on the top roof. Ive seen someone who took an outline of a witch cut out on a board, and then back lit it so she looked like she was flying thru the sky. Really cool effect.

I love to decorate my roofs, it helps w/the whole haunted house theme. Dont forget 2nd floor windows to help w/look. Hope that helps.

I forgot you can get one of those blow up forms and then put clothes on them and put them on the roof. Unfortunatly they need to be blown up again about every other day bc the weather effects them.

Pirates on the Roof

I always wanted to do something on the roof. What better than a pirate ship. I am lucky enough to have a flat portion of roof between the house and the garage.



Sorry the night shots are a little blurry.





And of course the cannons have to shoot smoke. Still working on the sound and flash of light when they fire.

How does everybody attach these props to their roof? I really don't want to drill or nail holes in the roof for obvious reasons. So what does everybody do to secure their props from sliding down the roof???
