Default Witch tree is done

One of our larger display props for the front yard scene. In addition to some real limbs and tree stumps, we made a couple creepy looking tree like armatures for visual interest. The witch tree will hopefully add some creepiness. Plan is to hang a couple pair of small children's shoes from the branches. A crow or two, some Spanish moss and maybe an old tricycle overturned near the base. Our witches are not the kind, motherly type! Finished this up today and it came out kind of neat! Anxious to put some light on it after dark. Should make for some great shadows!

Just under 7 ft tall. Thanks. I'm drawing inspiration from a few different sources and adding my own twist. Our theme this year is going to lend itself to a very organic, woodsy feel so hoping all of these elements add to the effect we're going for.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments too!
Just thinking I should have ripped those flowers out of the garden. They detracted from the pics.

Rip the flowers out of the garden and you risk having your head being stuck on one of those trees when your wife finds out

I love the look of this prop. It's as if the tree grew up through a cursed grave and carried the skull of the deceased with it.
