Decorating for Halloween is not just a fun activity but also an annual tradition for most families. And if you’re the type who goes the extra mile to turn your home into a haunted house, then this Ohio resident will inspire you to up your decorating game even further. Indeed, Alan Perkins has raised the bar when it comes to DIY Halloween décor, as he built a giant skeleton that’s seemingly breaking out of his home.
Perkins took to the Facebook group Cleveland Haunt Club to share photos of his spooktacular creation. According to his post, he decided to create his own massive skeleton since Home Depot had run out of stocks. At a glance, his house will surely remind you of the haunted houses that you only see in horror movies.
A resident from Ohio has gone viral for building a giant skeleton that’s seemingly breaking out of his home
For starters, it features two massive skeleton arms extending outwards, creating the illusion that they’ve broken away from the ground. One hand grabs the house by the roof, as though it’s ready to turn the property upside down. Meanwhile, the other hand holds a 12-foot skeleton that Perkins borrowed from a neighbor. In case you’re wondering, yes, it’s the same piece from Home Depot that went viral last year.
Overall, it took Perkins 25 days to build the colossal skeleton from scratch. He used foams block which he bought from Craigslist five years ago and meticulously carved them into bones. He also used PVC armature for support and stability. Finally, he hard coated the pieces with sand and glue and reinforced them with sealant for waterproofing. As for the final touch, he revealed that he’s also planning to add a skull that’s breaking through the roof.
Meanwhile, other exceptionally eerie details of the house include a huge spider crawling across the boarded-up window and another skeleton climbing up the roof. There’s also a sign that reads “Haunt of the Falls” near the entrance, coupled with enormous spider webs throughout the front yard.
Perkins’ house is located in Olmsted Falls on River Road, and it’s certainly impossible to miss. So, if you happen to be within the area, be sure to pay his skeleton squad a visit! In the meantime, feel free to check out his Facebook profile for more updates on his monstrous masterpiece.
