Classic design. I think people will appreciate jack o lanterns this year and yard displays even if trick or treating is cancelled this year.

Suffering from Halloween withdrawal. 2019 was an exceptional year. A bit unexpected. I received press coverage for the first time from 3 local outlets. The first interview was at the end of last September. After the word got out, I had several people request tours (Boy Scouts, a book club, senior ci...

I'm guessing you had early trick or treating? Did you get as many people/kids as you would have on Halloween? I wish they held it early this year because the weather was so nice over last weekend. Halloween is predicting thunderstorms. :sad: I'd love to see a display like yours! Everything looks aw...

OK...here are pics from this year's display. It was a breakout year for me. After 2 years of experimenting and redesigning, I finally feel like my display has matured. I only wish I had a bigger display area. My lawn is small and my garage space is limited. Most of it has to be indoors because weath...

When it rains, it pours. Another article from a more local newspaper... Unfortunately, none of the articles mentioned Zombie Pumpkins or Stoneykins, both of which I mentioned during the interviews. https://pamplinmedia.com/wlt/95-news/440561-353278-west-linn-man-displays-200-carved-pumpkins-in-his-g...

Sloaner, Yeah, our house is a decent size, but it has a very small front yard. We liked that because at the time we bought it, we didn't want to spend all day mowing a lawn. Now, I wish I had a larger front yard. The pumpkins go in the laundry room, garage, office, closets, basically any place I can...

Thanks Ryan, Unfortunately for this year I had to use more conventional shelves because I ran out of room in my display area. I need to get creative again. The potted plant holders did a great job of breaking up the monotony of straight rows, but they took up a lot of space and they needed to be pro...

Love these. You can go in so many directions with Alfred Hitchcock too. I think I have 5 pumpkins or so of Alfred Hitchcock movies.

The Oregonian spent about 2.5 hours interviewing me about my display and about my current carving obsession. At one point during the interview, I showed her the carving tools I used and showed the keyhole saw for sale on Zombie Pumpkins. I also told her about the beginner-friendly patterns available...
