I love it! They really do have a life to them. I love the teeth and that little bit of blood hanging from them. Great job!

I really like the look of this and I'm going to see if I can figure a way to make a snapping version.

Me likey! I planned on making a large venus flytrap or something like this for the haunt this year, but with the other projects on my plate it may have to wait until next year.

I have a question. Before breaking or making any cuts into my balloons, I am looking into several ways to attach my stems. I plan on using a wire stiffer than hanger wire to support what I feel may be moderately heavy plant heads. My concern is the structural integrity of the paper mache. I have 5 layers on the balloons now and plan on at least one, maybe two more.
My plan as of now is to form a circle at the end of the wire/stem (of sufficient size to provide for maximum area) and attach it with hot glue to the back of the balloon head. Then, paper mache a star pattern over the wire to hide it and to look like a sepal.
Am I over thinking this process or does anyone have any suggestions for attaching my wire/stems?

By the way hauntedkimmy, great plant!

Sorry I didn't see this until now beatlerat. I cut holes on the underside of mine in an X and pushed through the x with the stick and reinforced then with the hot glue and sepal petals. It seems to work great...I've had my plant out since I posted it and my kids and dogs bump it frequently without issue. I had about 5 coats on mine as well. Hope that helps.

I thought of using a wire too and making it look tendril like at the edge, but it didn't seem to need it.

This being Haunt Forum, we're allowed to necro threads, right?

I just wanted to say that the *awesome* job you did with the teeth really makes this prop come alive!
It's all fun and games, 'til the cops show up.
