Question Halloween Fence Finials or toppers in the UK?

HI
1st post on this forum but been following it for quite sometime, really enjoy it and very informative.

I am from the UK and Halloween is slow to catch on over here but slowly growing.

I am going to attempt my first Home Yard display this year, problem I have is that I just can not find anywhere on the internet in the UK where I can buy finials or toppers for a cemetery/Halloween fence.

If anyone can help me out with this I would be grateful.

Thanks in advance.

Paul

Are you opposed to making your own?

This is the best I can do. I have ordered from McFrugal before and was happy. I have no idea what over seas shipping is like, but if you go with plastic finials the weight factor should be less. I have used wrought iron finial before and they make the fence very top heavy so I would suggest going with plastic. Good luck.

We used little plastic mini skulls as toppers for our graveyard fence. Not as elegant as real finials, but they fit the Halloween theme

Thanks for the welcome and nice to meet you.

No I'm not opposed to having a go at making them, only problem is being called an amateur in this respect is an understatement

Leeds is quite some way from me but I'm sure they would have the same issues as me.

Thanks so much for the links, they are worth a try.

Thanks for the answer, I did see a few posts on here about using mini skulls but yet again I have not managed to find them in the UK.

SciFi- I've ordered from the Decorative Iron website (BoneDancer gave you the link) and I was very happy with them. Their catalog of items isn't really Halloween related, so maybe you could find a similar iron-works supply source closer to home. Otherwise the Decorative Iron website can probably estimate shipping costs for you. Good luck! My fence was just built this year and I love it! I relied on instructions that were very helpful from SpiderClimber. Look them up, they are fully illustrated and full of good tips.

Fear not
we all started somewhere and we all came together here for help and to help.

Now lets get started. What have you got in mind and what do you have so far
