Ok, so you've seen how the house looked Halloween. The giant spider was a big hit and Im sure we'll use that again but I wanted to do something different this year. We have an grade school nearby and the feedback we get from the kids is so encouraging - it really makes me want to go all out. So here is what it looks like now...
It could have probably used another skeleton or two but overall, I think the concept worked well. I'm not quite done - it needs a few more finishing touches but we've had monsoon like rains here this week and I'm running out of time.
The idea of the climbing skeleton didn't start with me. I found it here. But obviously we couldn't nail the skeletons into the stone without damaging our house so we used fishing wire at various points to hold them in position. Thankfully the storms this week didn't move them out of place (shocking!). We got the skeletons at Oriental Trading using as many coupons as a I could find, fishing wire from a bait & tackle shop (they looked at me really strangly when I told them I wanted to hang skeletons - it was august!), styrofoam skeleton heads from Michaeals (coupons!), little ravens from the 99 cents store, large raven from my halloween supply box.
So what do you think? Anything (quick and easy) I could add or tweak to make it better?
