After a lot of late nights spent in the garage drawing and painting, it all came out Sunday afternoon! The kids and I had a great time with this and I must say, its attracting quite a bit of attention. We want to add more but not sure what right now. Thanks for looking!

That's a hoot!

I really admire all your hard work. I know it must have taken a while for you to put all of that together.

Great Job! Did you cut these out of plywood ? I've always wanted to make some tombstones for the yard, but never wanted to mess with cutting them out of plywood. I did do some out of heavy cardboard for our halloween party but they kept falling over. You did Great!

Did you paint the traveling ghosts from just looking at pics of the HM ghosts!? They look JUST LIKE THEM!! :goodvibes

They covered making similar grave markers on Martha Stewart today: Grave Markers (http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=stv440016&layout=martha)

It looks fantastic!! I really want to do something like this with the Nightmare Before Christmas-- figure I can pretty much leave it up between Halloween and New Year's!!

Any tips on doing this would be greatly appreciated-- did you use an overhead projector and trace the pix onto the plywood? :flower:

Yes, they are plywood. I found a site with the old attraction poster and saved it to my computer. I printed it out and drew them from that. For the tombstones, I looked up photos of the actual ones from HM and freehanded them. All the tombstones are from scraps left after I did the ghosts.

Saturday97, I really debated between this and Nightmare but with Nightmare I wouldn't know where to stop; I wanted Jack, Sally, Zero, OogieBoogie, Lock, Shock, and Barrel, the Mayor, the vampires... It would go on forever! HM was much simpler!

Hunny pots, I know what you mean about getting carried away-- at this point I am considering a huge haunted house almost as tall as our house! My husband looks frightened every time I have a "new idea"! :rotfl:

OK - I have to admit, we attracted quite a lot of attention last night. I could not believe the number of people taking pictures of their kids with my decorations - the camera flashes were almost constant for two hours! I loved it! Now I am even more inspired to top it next year!

Don't do something different to top it, just add to it. That way you can reuse what you made. You can just make more things to go along with it.

You did a wonderful job by the way!

You could do the Nightmare Before Christmas Haunted Manison overlay! Just throw Jack Skellington and some snow covered pumpkins in the mix! :)
