|My ghoul!! A bit of chain, an old cape used for Renn Faire and the pvc pipe frame! Creepy, no?|
Next, a really simple creepy mirror! Reference: Spooky Mirror
Next, we have spiders!! Tons of them!! Coming out of the fireplace!! This one has no reference as I cam up with it all by my awesome self! ;)
I wanted to make my own spider web and spider but wasn't able to do so due to time constraints and a lot of day job business going on :( The web would have been a braided white yarn with some sort of frame and the spider I was thinking black yarn finger knitted for the legs, and maybe balloons and/or papier mache'd body parts. People seemed to be sufficiently creeped by this alone however, so I called it a success!
The spiders were stuck on the wall with just a little ball of tacky putty and the spider is one of those posable cardboard ones you can get pretty cheap usually. Tape that guy up, make it look like she's crawling down the wall, using the picture frame and curtain rods for footholds, tape and pin up a bunch of fake webbing...done!!
Something small I tried doing that didn't turn out quite like I wanted, again, time constraints.. a Pet Cemetary of sorts. No reference, but here's the picture showing what I did:
|Front of the house, Halloween night.|
The last thing of real notice I wanted to show is a creepy, cheap village you can put on your counter! Reference: DIY Dollar Store Halloween Village
|General haul when I went shopping one day. The porcelain villages are what I'm trying to point out in this one.|
|Example of the people I got to use.|
|All laid out, ready to paint!|
|Spray painted a layer on front and back to cover everything up with some black paint, including the little trees!|
|After spray painting, including an awesome wire tree I got at the Goodwill for just $1!!|
