Have a problem with wanting a little animation in your cemetery scene but difficulty running power to a certain area?
Well, I decided to take advantage of Mother Nature (when she wanted to cooperate) and let her cool fall breezes animate the Creepy Fingers protruding from this tombstone.


Step 1: Materials

Wood
Screws
Foam Board
Wire
1/4" PVC pipe
Weights (Small Stones, Fishing Sinkers, etc - anything that fits in the PVC pipe)
2 eye hooks
Pool Noodle
Large Fake Finger Nails
Corpsing Materials (Latex or Carpet Glue & Cotton Batting or Paper Towels)
Monster Mud
Spray Paint - Tombstone color of your choice
Hot Glue
Plastic or Wood Beads with a Hole in the Center
Wooden Skewers
Duct Tape
Can you tell me what size wire you used? Also, could you explain the foam center in the pvc pipe a little better? Not quite clear what you mean. <br>Thank you, love the project and will try it.

Ooooh you have Thriller on!!
Definite do for Halloween! Thanks!
Thanks! Glad you like it! :)
if u were to modify this a bit, u could make it look like the egg and facehugger from&nbsp; alien
Love the project!&nbsp; It could use some articulation to really be extra creepy, but for its simplicity it gets my stars!<br />
Thanks! <br />
That looks awesome! You should embed the video in the first step, too.
Thanks!! If I can figure out how to do it, I will!
Yeah! I figured it out! LOL!! Thanks for the suggestion. I think it is better with it in the intro.
Very cool idea! It is a green idea too!!
Thanks Grimdaddy! I may add a base to it that reads "Bluetooth Salesman". LOL!!
Ha! Just got it, sounds like hands freed.
LOL!! :)
hey, great job! I would like to suggest a separated topic for the 'motion' of it. I think it would be better for organization. Anyway, very nice instructable!
Thanks for the compliment. Wish I could help you out with a separate topic about the motion of it, but unfortunately, I just winged it and got lucky. I am sure there are physics formulas that someone more advanced would be able to calculate for where exactly to drill the holes, exact amount of counter weight, etc. but I am as dumb as a rock when it comes to those things. LOL! Most of the things I build, I just use trial & error, then keep my fingers crossed that they work! :)
lol thats super creative, did you come up with the idea yourself? BTW i tried a similar (no moving parts) project last year. Any idea where I could buy the right kind of foam board? Thanks and great 'ible!
Thanks! Yes, my twisted comes up with some strange things at times. LOL!! You can go to any home improvement store and they should have it. I got mine at Home Depot because I drive a PT Cruiser so I have to buy the half sheets - our Lowes here only carries the full 4x8 sheets. The full sheets come in different thicknesses too.
Thanks
