Halloween - Cemetery Fence and Columns


My cemetery fence is made from 1"x2" strips of wood with pvc runners. The paint is Rustoleum Hammer Finish. After the paint plain pvc didn't quite do it so I started looking for finials, well the best I could do was about $.80 each. and at about 300 needed it was just to much. One day I was in the Dollar Store and saw some skull shaped whistles that might do the trick... they fit perfectly and looked great, and at $1 per bag of 8... now we were talking! Fence made I turned to the columns. Each column is made from 2"x4"s and plywood. I painted them with ceiling texture mixed in the paint for added texture. The small comlums are 5 feet tall and the Gate columns are 6 feet tall. I decorated the gate columns with a couple of bucky skulls and couple of lanterns I got from a close out sale at a hardware store. I made the archway from plywood, the trim is foam pipe insulation and the letters came from Hobby Lobby.
