Early Halloween Sighting at my work!

Postby SIEFKA » Mon Jun 23, 2014 10:57 am

I don't know if you guys on here remember how last year in august I was asking how to make a pumpkin display for my work. Well I had a chance to make another display this year and I went for it and pulled that idea out of my head I had been saving for this moment.

Image

Thanks to Stoney I had the idea of carving the company logo into the pumpkin. I wanted vines going around and all over the display so I took grape vine and I either drilled it into the display or wrapped it around. Some of the vine I painted green while some I left blank. If you notice the top and bottom fabrics are Jack o’ lanterns. While the middle fabric is spider webs in black and purple. Now to really get into the spirit I always when I make these displays put something on the bottom of the display for them to remember.

So I simply took the saying on both the bottom of the top circle and the middle circle from a Halloween 2 soundtrack, I translated it into Celtic too!

Oíche Shamhna ag teacht. Tá tú a fháil réidh.

Which translates to: "Halloween is coming. You have to get ready."
Image

I just can't wait until next Halloween,
'Cause I've got some new ideas
that will really make them scream!
And, by God, I'm really gonna give it all my might!

I'm in awe of your precision carving.
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

Good to see this. Still only seeing some generic "fall" stuff out, but usually within a week or two it will pop up here, too.

The Hallow: That looks wicked cool. Nice job. Hope to see more of your display work. I bet the stuff you set up around your house looks amazing.

Witchy: Pictures! Your sign sounds really nice.
We're the farmer's scarecrows
We scare away the birds,
We keep the farmer's corn safe
Without any words.
But when Halloween comes
We jump out of the ground
And we scare the boys and girls
When they come walking 'round.

I really like that mural with the glowing pumpkins you have up on the mantle.

Are those little lights behind the pumpkins?

Is it battery operated or plug in?

What'd you pay for it and where did you get it?
