Thank you for your comment. I did think about the lights but couldn't find any for outdoor use just the white lights. I was actually thinking about using some red lights in the eyes but want to make sure I can make it safe for the outdoors.
Awesome, as for the oven goes as long as the blade is clean she will never know you used it. I didn't mention this in the write up but the pan I have the blade sitting on is from the dollar store. So you don't have to use one of the "good" pans either.
Thanks, I keep fining old saw blades around my shop its like they are multiplying.
Its a very rewarding build.
Great project! I love a big attention-getting display for halloween. And your final paint job on the skull is terrific. I am the same - not very good at drawing, but if I have an idea of something I want to do I find a way. Have you thought about a red bulb in your floodlight? Might be interesting.
I have been wanting to make a knife for a while. Now with your Instructable, I will be trying it very soon. Thanks for an easy to follow and understand guide. Now if mt wife doesn't kick me out for using her oven, Ill have it made. Thanks again. Steve
I don't see why not I would chose a picture that made it look like the skull is coming through the wall though. Basically make it look like it is coming out of the side of the house. Instead of the full skull do a partial skull peeking through a giant "crack" in the wall. And maybe the skeleton hands breaking through as well. I would show you what I mean but that level of drawing is beyond my ability.
Thanks I appreciate it.
I did a quick google search for "skull peeking through" and found these images. I think something like this might look cool.
Thanks I appreciate it!

So good! VOTED! - mlawing
Cool! is there any way to use this technique and have it sticking out of the front, or side of my house? - billcitrus
Nice project. Hope i can make one sometime.
I didn't have all the ingredients so I used mini marshmallows for the white parts and melted semi sweet chocolate for the dark details. My kids loved them. Thanks for this post.
These are sooo awesome! My kids love my chocolate chip cookies this will definitely take them to another level. Thanks for the write up.
I wish I had a fence! This is awesome! - wold630
XD You should leave it up all year round! - Swansong
can you please include some pictures of how you get the hands to hang in front? - JerryG58
This is so good!!I have a side-yard fence where something like this would be perfect (although perhaps not quite as big as yours). Very nicely done. - seamster
Thanks. My next instructable will be how to build a fence. ;-)
They are just screwed to the front fence. But I will add a picture
It was a fun build for sure. If you are up for it go for it I have already gotten a great response from some of my neighbors.
I live on a corner and my street has a stop sign that most people ignore or just roll through. Lately they have been stopping so I guess it has more purpose than I originally thought it would.
