Halloween 2009 was hilighted by periods of heavy rain and winds. Not a complete washout, but it put a hurting on some of my "filler" props. Most of those were made with cardboard tubes or boxes.
This year I have been replacing those with materials that can handle some bad weather. I'm using conduit (both PVC and fiberglass) to replace the carpet tubes and I'll be using thin plywood and old pallet boards to make crates & boxes.
I have started by redoing my pilings using 4" fiberglass conduit with a "new" texture material (monster mud mixed with liquid nails). I'm making 4 or 5 sets to use as a barrier to keep the kids out of the display.
I'll post more pics and do a how-to in the next few days. For now, here is the first one that is completed.
Here is the how-to: Faux Wooden Pilings.
