This tutorial provides the steps necessary to build a wood, wire mesh and paper mache prop for Halloween
displays, parties or events. It is a stylized tree with human-like tree limbs reaching out to snatch
up the unsuspecting. The ghoulish face glows a fiery red revealing the demons that lurk within and the
top of the tree shows where the trunk was "snapped off" during a wickedly, ferocious Halloween storm.|
If you're reasonably handy, and have the proper tools, you can build this fun and satisfying project
in a month or so (working just nights and weekends or quicker if you really get after it). Familiarize
yourself with these instructions and the accompanying photographs and drawings before beginning.
I feel you can build this entire project with a jigsaw (a bandsaw is nice though), a circular saw, drill,
hot-glue gun, construction stapler, metal snips (or cutters), hammer, screwdriver, utility knife, measuring
tape, a bucket or two, and a lot of newspapers.
