Backdrop & Ticket Booth
First, I set up a blood-splattered black-and-white-striped tent backdrop over my garage. On top of it, I added a creepy clown carnival banner inviting guests to “Step Right Up” to the “Kill ‘Em All CarnEVIL”. Very inviting, don’t you think?!
Below the banner, I set up a ticket booth, complete with creepy clown ticket master and his skeleton and skeleton monkey assistants.
Next, I set up a spooky faux snack station, with blood-splatterd spider-ridden “rotten” cotton candy, guarded by the scariest jack-in-the-box I’ve ever seen. Even if these snacks were edible, do you think anyone would actually be brave enough to grab one?
There was also blood-soaked popcorn strewn around, that my evil faux rat props were quite fond of.
Creepy Clown Carnival Games & Entertainment
There is no carnival without games and entertainment. For this carnival, I set up a spiderweb-covered game table with a DIY painted clown skull carny. Additionally, there were skeleton performers – a strong man, a knife-throwing victim, and a trapeze artist! Finally, I added a creepy clown carnival fortune teller in the back, beckoning brave guests to hear their dark futures.
