Hello! I LOVE Halloween, and usually am involved in a haunted attraction somewhere. This year, I decided to just do the home deal and have some Halloween fun w the neighbors and Family. Unfortunately, due to the economy, I had to sell all my props that I've been collecting for years. (Real bummer for me, cause it was thousands worth of stuff )
Me being me, I decided I could pull it off w stuff I have around the house and some free time.
I like pushing myself as an avid builder of many things..... this is what I came up with for little to no money.
Hope u enjoy...
Step 1: Layout and supplies
You must first have some sort of an idea of what you want to do and how to lay it out. I had an "idea" but just kinda went w it.
I knew I wanted a cool graveyard, and had always looked at my house and saw a "face" of sorts w the windows and front porch.
As far as supplies, you can use anything you deem usable for your project.
Things I used were, coroplast sign board, wire, old costumes, spray paint, cardboard tubes ect... you get the picture!
I had some old costume stuff laying around still, so thats where i started... on the front porch.
Step 2: Guy on the Porch
This little fella is super creepy, and is nothing more than a mask, and cloak draped over the wooden eagle statue that is normally there.
The short offset stature of the statue, makes this thing look delapitated and crooked standing. I have a blue light that shines upward on his face so at night you get a cool underlighting effect.
This step cost me zero dollars, as I had these 2 things already. You could also make your own cloak out of a sheet or similar.
