    We really do Halloween up big. We made the armatures from PVC pipe and dressed them in adult costumes (except the clown has on my DH clothes). Each monster has shoes I bought at Goodwill and styrofoam heads from a beauty supply store. The hands are rubber that I was able to find in pairs at KMart. We made the half coffin for the jailbird. Also made the cauldron from a large flower pot and painted it black. The flames I cut out of plywood, painted them, then added glitter. We carved all the artificial pumpkins. Hope you enjoy!

    Beautiful home and fantabulous decorations. Better have lots of treats for the visitors because when the word gets out everybody will want to come and "trick or treat" at this house from miles away. Have a Happy Halloween.

    OH what fun!! We are back from a highway and we don't get any children except the (3) from next door, so decorating isn't appreciated here. I do love to see others efforts! How many children do you get each year?
