When I was little the one thing that used to creep me out more than anything was walking through any kind of wooded area. I was certain the trees were alive and it would absolutely freak the heck out of me. I never truly felt like I was alone out there. Thank goodness I didn’t see the Wailing Tree that the Ghostess over at the Dead End created when I was a kid, because I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have ever gone near a tree again.
The frame of this tree is made of PVC while the body is a combination of chicken wire, paper mache, and a little bit of Great Stuff to seal the bottom. While not tremendously hard to create, you can tell that the Ghostess really put a lot of care into the creation of this prop. It’s an absolute thing of beauty, and I don’t think I’d be happy building just one, I want a whole forest of these things!
Items needed to complete this include:
- 1 Bucky Skull
- PVC (variable depending on the size)
- Chicken wire
- Paper mache
- Great Stuff
- 14 gauge wire (for branches)
- Silk leaves
- DryLok masonry sealer
- Black / Brown / Gray Paint
