So now you know the concept and seen the invite, of course there had to be some exterior decor to match. (Prior year's themes have been spider infestation, skeleton invasion and freak show). Welcome to our madhouse...
The neighbors and passing kids seem to get a kick out of it so I'm happy. We've even had a few people who sneak in the gate and take photos of themselves with our fine doctor. Hee-hee.
It could use a little more filler in the form of spider webs and rubber rats but I didn't have those handy so I'll add them before Halloween Monday but I think this is pretty creepy as is.
And yes, I'm already mentally working on next years idea.
For that want to know the details:
-I made the visiting hours sign really easily using a large wooden board, spray paint, a hand cut 'H' and some peel and stick letters. I thought I'd have to hand paint it but this was so much quicker and easier. (Subway style posters could easily be made using the same method)
-I purchased the hospital gown and scrubs online but added the 'property of' design using a stencil made with the silhouette die cutting machine.
-The condemned sign and patient files were designed by me but I found the eerie photographs on the always full of inspiration site Graphics Fairy.
