From the date of this post, there are only 68 days until Halloween. That may seem like a lot of time. But for prop makers, crafters and party hosts, the timeline is even shorter.
Party hosts usually place their event the weekend before and crafters and yard haunters like to show off their efforts a least a month prior to the big day. Anything shorter would seem pale in comparison for all the effort put into their late-night prop making.
The flurry of activities between networking with other crafters can be exhilarating. From blogs, Pininterest, websites and forums, ideas begin to take form.
Reading other people’s blogs can motivate you to write, create and evolve ideas. Reading countdown sites like Renae Rude – The Paranormalist can jump start you into action. Which, rightly so, will save you a lot of grief and stress in the long run.
For me, your Frugal Frights and Delights writer, I’ve already been prop making for a few weeks. Soon you’ll get a glimpse of the life-size prop of Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas that will be added to my Jack Skellington and Zero dog made last year. Hopefully, you’ll get the tutorial in time to make your own.
