Oh, man! This would have totally scared the SOCKS off me when I was a kid. I think I was traumatized for life by the trees in "Wizard of Oz" and "Babes in Toyland."

This tree's delicious malevolence brings it all back to me!
Great job!

I am really impressed.  I have always been more of a Christmas person, but I'm getting inspired to do more for Halloween this year.  Did you use something as a frame for the tree?  How long did it take you to make it?  The detail and painting is wonderful.

The aramature is chicken wire and newspaper. It took me several months, working on it here and there.

 Cheesy  That is way cool!  You captured Halloween perfectly!  One question, where do you store it off-season?  I love big decorations but we live in a tiny house and have found it hard to find adequate storage.  Great Job!!
