I'm new to the forum. I thought I would share some of fun I have had making props for my Pirate scene. The picture inclosed is the deck of my pirate ship from last year. My porch serves as the booty galley, and the front yard serves as the dock. Over 500 christmas lights covered with blue tarps creates simulated water. This year I made a cannon, and added a few animated figures. I will post more pictures.
