Well, im cutting time close but here it is. She stands about 5' tall.


sign close-up


skeleton


the bone and sign party is detachable... heres a picture of that


Material List
  • Post- Free
  • Walmart Skeleton- 10
  • PVC- Honestly, I dont know, but with the elbow I'll call it 2 dollars
  • Zip Ties- 1.00
  • Foam bone- 50 cents, including glue
  • Chains- $4
  • Nails and toothpicks- 1.00
  • Paint- $5
Total - $23.50

Basically, I nailed the skeleton to the post. The post is left over from building my fence (real fence). Then i drilled a few holes in a 1/2" PVC elbow and nailed that on behind the skeletons head. Then I nailed his hand on top. I carved and sanded the bone from beaded white foam, and attached the chains with toothpicks. The other side of the chains were polyurethane glued onto the sign section. I made a stencil out of cardstock that said 105 N. Tower with an x-acto knife. I used that to spray paint onto the sign, eating away the letters. Then I painted it in 2 different grays and the letters black. It isnt amazing, but Im quite satisfied.:xbones:

I like the effect of the letters carved. I think I'll try that on some tomb stones! Thanks for the idea. Nice work. :)

On a side note..... Don't play with Sickie, he plays too rough.

Beeps, the sign looks good. Glad you made the deadline.
