Looks great!  I only have one Halloween blow mold 😂

Thanks I started with one many years ago too. I did not have much money back then and ended up after Halloween picking up 20 Halloween GFP candy buckets 50 cents each and made a top rail with candy bucket screwed down and then it started.) Then I got into LOR and wired them up to music.I take them out Halloween night.

Just started yesterday so all I have done is put out some new driveway markers and hang pumpkins that surround my garage.  I finally got enough to go all around the garage every 12 inches.

My local Dollar Tree has piles of cheap Halloween decorations. The solar driveway markers caught my eye. I didn't expect much. They certainly are worth a dollar. They have a small LED inside, a 120 mAh NiCad battery, and a small solar array on the back. It was hard to resist something this inexpensive and I knew it wouldn't be much of a task to enhance the lights inside if I ran them off low voltage (12V DC). Just for a daytime display they are fine. I bypassed the solar part and added short pieces of strip lights – either 3 SMD 5630 LEDs or 6 SMD 3528 LEDs. Now they are much brighter and worth keeping for next year. I would guess that the battery would go bad being stored in the dark for 11 months so these would be throw-away if you use the existing lights. After modifying the first four I bought a bunch more. They also have a table-top ghost that is nice. It has 3 button cells inside, has a motion sensor that triggers the RGB LED light and the sound, and a switch on the bottom so it can be turned off. I took out the guts and modified them with a stake so I could add them to the driveway markers but it is worth buying just for the item itself. It's hard to imagine anyone can manufacture the ghost and sell it for a dollar.

I'm having a hard time inserting pictures so you can see what I did with these links:
