My idea came from here http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/kzb1v/my_friends_just_moved_they_decided_to_use_all/ via here http://ianbrooks.me/post/11033327010/halloween-house-made-by

I loved this idea.  I only have three windows that face the street...but I figured I'd give it a go!  I used black foam board, tissue paper, contact paper and an exacto knife and circle cutter.

This is a crappy shot from the street on a phone that doesn't zoom enough to compensate for the fact that I live on the third floor:


You can see I did little extra eyes.  It wasn't that impressive from three floors down...but oh well!

Each monster up close and during the day:
