I am atempting the pvc/wood cemetery fence. Does anyone know where to get finials for the tops of the pipes? Something cool but wont break the bank.

Any help is greatly appreciated. TY!

I got ours Here at King Architectural Metals... if the link takes you to the wrong place, click on finials, then on plastic.

PS, Welcome to Haunt Forum, Fear!

A few years ago I was one of 6 co owners of a haunted attraction (unfortunately the owners of the building decided to make apartments out of it) anyway, one year in our cemetery scene we had a 3 to 4 foot tall cemetery fence and we needed to make finials that we quick to make and not sharp for safety. What we did was take the thick foam insides from couch coushions (free from people who were throwing the couch away) and cut the pieces into 4 inch tall blocks then cut the triangle tops and left a small square section on the bottom which you could stuff easily into the tops of the pvc we used for the bars, we used hot glue then placed them into the pvc, painted them with flat black spray paint and they looked really good. Quick, cheap and effective. I hope this wasn't confusing. Hope it helps!

I, too, find myself needing some replacement finials after our move. I tried the link Dixie posted, but it seems dead, pun intended lol, and my old supplier argent steel has removed their webpage as well. Any ideas? I dont want to have to replace 400 linear feet of finials if I dont have to.

How many do you need? I have a big bag full of them. Checkout my website and photostream, last page you can see the design.

Let me know!
