This is how our family decorated our well for Halloween.  We love the movie "the Ring" for being scary as all you-know-what.  We watch it several times a year and it's still so awesome!



Here's what we used to make her:  wig, kid's batman face candy bucket, long sleeve shirt, long dress, plastic bags, floral foam, 2 hockey sticks, 2 halloween hands, and white masking tape



First, we had to empty out our well and say goodbye to our fall flowers.  The dress was thrifted but torn so I used my trusty sewing machine to fix any problems and to sew in some plastic to make the arms a bit puffier.  Then two hockey sticks went in the arms to ensure that she looked like she was crawling out of the well.   We then stuffed more plastic bags into the dress and half buried it under the soil.  Last but not least, Batman's head was taped with white masking tape so the face doesn't look like Batman.  Then we nailed floral foam to the wig and then placed the foam into the Batman bucket opening.  

We really liked having something a little different than the norm.  We pulled it out on Nov 1 but the kids kind of miss it.



Thanks for looking!

Wow. That is terrifying! Great work on making it look so realistic! What were the children's reactions to it?

Hurricane Sandy made it very hard for kids to go trick or treating.  We did get a lot of requests for pictures though  Smiley
So far, no kids cried as a result of our halloween decor.  However, next year we may go more traditional...

Freaking fantastic and absolutely immediately recognizable as "the Ring."  Great job!
