Christmas Carolers Yard Art A lively Christmas display on your lawn or roof top will contribute to the spirit of Christmas in your community. Make your holiday decorations distinctive by featuring this new slant on the ever popular Yuletide Carolers.
Christmas Shadow Cutouts An unusual outdoor display for the holiday season can be made with figures cut out from 1/4 inch waterproof plywood stuck in the ground with a spotlight in back. The light casts a shadow of the cutout figure onto the door as illustrated in photo.
Halloween Cemetery Fencing Well for 2002 I decided that Raven Manor should have a fancy gate and fence for two reasons. 1) To keep the trick or treaters from walking through the middle of the yard (all those cords and semi-fragile foam tombstones); and 2) it plain just looks good and helps create the whole cemetery scene.
Halloween Mausoleum The design was inspired by actual crypts/mausoleums in a local cemetery. I took a trip down one afternoon and took a bunch of photos. I think some people wondered what I was doing. Then I looked at each of them and combined the elements I wanted. I think what made it look good is the false raised front with the steps. I did not want to extend a false floor through the whole piece, plus this gives our ghost extra floor room to move.
