Add that extra touch of class to your Haunted House with our Creep Fence. Here at TheHorrorDome.com, we like to add that little extra touch to make a good prop a great prop. So with that in mind here is our CREEP FENCE.
Materials Needed per each fence section:
- 2 – 1" x 2" x 8′ pieces of ferring strip
- 4 – 10 ‘ pieces of 1/2 inch PVC
- Some wood screws
- Some fence tips (make your own or get some party whistles in the shape of a diamond)
- 1 – can of flat black spray paint
- Some red, yellow and black paint (mix these colors to make the rust color)
1 – First drill 12 holes, 8 inches apart into a piece of 1″ x 2″ x 8′ ferring strip. Make sure you start 4 inches away from the edge of the ferring strip and then you will end up with 4 inches on the other side also.
2 – Cut the PVC into sections of 40 inches in length, this way you get the most out of the PVC. You should get 3 pieces for every 10 foot piece. 12 pieces will make up 1 section of the fence.
3 – Assemble the fence by inserting the 40 inch pieces of PVC into the holes you drilled earlier.
4 – Measure 7 inches from the tip of the PVC to the point where the wood connects. Do the same on the other side also.
5 – Secure the PVC in place by using wood screws. Do this for each piece, top and bottom.
6- To save time we used party whistles that were just the shape we needed for the fence tips. We filed the bottom edges down so that they would fit into the PVC, then they were glued into place.
7 – Paint the fence with a flat black spray paint and let it dry. Then we mixed up some rust colored paint using red, yellow and some brown. This will make the fence look old and rusty. Use your own discretion where to put the rust. For the best result dab the rust on with a small brush.
8 – Make the posts out of 2 inch PVC and cut the PVC the same size as the fence bars (40 inches). Then we used glow-in-the-dark skulls that fit over the PVC perfectly. We then glued each skull to the posts and painted it. After that we drove some pipe into the ground and slipped the posts over the pipe and then screwed 2 screws into the back of the posts to secure them. Then we attached the fence to the posts with some 2 inch angle irons.
There you have it: an old, dirty, rusting fence that no one in their right mind would have in front of their house. Pretty cool, right? Let us know what you think in the comments or over on Facebook
