Starting 3 piece Halloween Carnival base.

I'm so excited to be starting my carnival base. I've been saving this piece of styro foam for 2 years. It's been thru some 101 degree weather, multiple rain showers and is finally getting to be used. I had to clean it up though boy was it dirty. I cut it into three pieces so I can store it better when it's done. I set up all the main Halloween rides and stalls so I can see how they look. I may need to carve this base into different heights so the back and middle row of rides will show better.
The cake walk building (Sugar and Spice manor) may have to go into the city base when I make it.

I'm working on making some bases for my neighborhood Halloween houses. I can reuse these every year and they are designed to match each house with a theme. This house is Lemax Spooky town's Halloween Party House.
Here is the start of one without grass or decorations.
Here are three of the house bases done.
This is Lemax's Spookiest House on the block.

Halloween Party house
The bases without the decorations. I have a little touch up to do. LOL
This is what I'm going for bases that can be stored away for use next year but won't take up a lot of space. I can stack a lot of these in a box. The sidewalk isn't the one I'm going to make for this set. It will be in several sections to store with the bases.

Pirate Treasure!

I'm setting up Lemax's Pirate village this year for Halloween. Since there is a new ship and some tables pieces out this year I'm adding a section to the Barnackle Bay set.

 I made some treasure piles for a cave room like in the Disney ride Pirates of the Caribbean.
 I made several out of papermache and jewelry findings.

I just finished my friends treasure I hope he likes them.
