Vlad the Impaler
So I started setup yesterday (couldn't wait till the first) I put out my pumpkins and a few tombstones (still have about 30 more to put up). Well anyway, I always wanted to drape vines over my porch and door but fake vines at Michales are so expensive and don't look real at all. Than I had a thought, I have LOTS of vines that are growing up the side of the house all two stories up where no one can see them, maybe I can use those. So I went to the side of the house and pulled alot of the vines off the house and fence, than dragged them up on top of the porch covering and hung them there and some over the door. I also put up two pumpkins so it looks like the vines came from the pumpkins. The efect is quite startling and perfect for my Haunted Mansion theme. Today the vines dryed out and are dead but it looks even better. but here are some pictures of when I put them up yesterday when they were more living. I will have to get some pictures of them now and some night shots two so you can see the pumpkins lit and flicker lights on the porch. Tell me what you think!!
