Thanks everybody! We had fun making them!

Mikeq91, they were cut from plywood, then painted black.

Hella, yes the one on the right is from Martha (although we had to rescale her to be sized correctly with the other one, and her arm is in a different pose).

They were very easy and held in place even with the high winds. Hubs put rebar on the back that went through conduit strapped on the back.

I have that Martha Stewart magazine and thought they were neat. You did a great job with the silouettes. I like the pumpkin posts in the back. I use a lot of rebar with my props tooo. Comes in handy.

OMG - No! I got the idea from a magazine, then tweaked the whole setting with lighting, the beacons, fog machine and real JOL's!

Spider Rider: Yes, when it was completely dark, the JOL beacons looked like they were floating. And they tied in with the other real JOLs that I carved on my front step and the minis w/ just eyes carved, and hanging from shepherd hooks.

Nice look, something to keep in mind for next year. Storing flat is a bonus, too.

Wonder if Martha has a link to the patterns on her site?
