Hey everyone,

As promised in other posts.. I have posted some pictures of our yard haunt/haunted house. just look below......

As you can see our haunted house is made with cardboard (for walls) and 2x4 (as supports). As shown in two of the photos we make several holes in the cardboard and use twine to attach the walls together. Its a lengthy process but It holds up pretty good.










ill post more pictures tommarrow... lemme know what you think....

I love cardboard for prop building, so I'm interested to see what you're going to do with this.

Try putting 4 posts of some kind, tying string or rope to the top of them, and hanging sheets or plastic or something from the sheets. Go to the junk yard and look for some cool stuff.
You could also use props on the side like barriers to the entrance.

Thanks for the ideas... I think we may try making somekind of archway... or brace and connect a wire from one end to the other and hang sheets on the wire....

Wow I'm amazed by your work with the cardboard. Almost looks easy. Just a stitch here and a stitch there. I like that it's recyclable and can't wait to see what you do with all the walls and other decorations.

Man that's a lot of cardboard....

You would be suprised, its not hard at all.... the only problem that you run into is the cardboard warping when there is a lot of moisture in the air... but other than that... have a couple 2 x 4's throughout the maze and your good...
