Please post, what you think, is YOUR, best homemade prop or decor.

This was a back yard haunt, we (the fam) put together in 2009 for our TOTs! I made the tombstones and the cemetery sign. Loved how my sign turned out. Misspelled, cemetery but didn't care enough to correct! Lol!

I rarely make my own props. This year could be an exception though. That said, I guess my best 'homemade' decorations would have to be my pumpkins. When I get done carving this year, I should have 19 or 20 jacks for the yard.

I knew that as soon as Spooky hit this thread, we were going to see some coffins :)

Remember to build seats with seatbelts!! We don't want anyone being flung from the coffins!

You're concerned about preventing flying off the coffins but not werewolf petting for the children? :shock:

Do you like / have children, Pumpkin? :?

Put a muzzle on the werewolves and they'll be fine. Kids are pretty resilient. I don't have kids. I have a wee niece and that's plenty for me 8)

For me, it's a toss-up between the PVC gurney and the candy cannon (yes, it really does shoot candy)....

Sooo, is the candy cannon used to shoot candy out to kids so they stay off your lawn? :wink:

Nah, we just use it to shoot projectile chocolate for fun... There's nothing more liberating than firing some chocolaty goodness into oblivion. (And watching the little kids run after it-- gotta make 'em work for it, ya know?)
