Heres mine. What i did was take a wood pallet, painted it to look like old wood, put some spider wbes on it, put a dummy behind it, and then Painted Signs that say The Haunted Manner - Coming Soon! - 30 Days. I use painters touch chalkboard black spray paint (made specifically to dry as a chalkboard type surface. Everyday I change how many days are left by spray painting the numbers and re-chalking them

From today I say it is 30 days away. I started putting items out today, small items and will add everyday so the kids walking by have something new to look at. The big items fence, mausoleum, etc will go up the weekend of the 20th so they are up at least a week to viewing.

Ok I did get one made yesterday and Im pretty happy with it....
Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket go here and at the bottom of the page 2 is some pics and the rest on page 3. So one prop done thats new finally. But its seems I worked all day just making this one sign and the extra wood cut outs for the other numbers. Today it says 29. I bring it in about 9pm and then it goes back out the next morning with a new number at about 5am.

WHat I'm thinking of doing is hanging a dummy from the light post outside our house and having a sign underneath that says...
"THE BLACK WOODS - Only at Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck's 18th Annual Spooky Walk"
and then putting a countown and maybe directions and a website link, because our haunt isn't at our house.
That might attract attention. :D
