Been wanting to do this project for a couple of years - finally got around to it. They are all 1/4" ply and 1x1's for the column and 3/4" ply trim. 90% of the wood i had in my garage from other projects. Gargoyles are from Target (the project started with them), and the lanterns from Home Depot. Followed Terra's painting techniques for tombstones. The shorter ones go in between my sections of fence.
How to make $12 floor candlesticks... Buy newel posts (for the end of stairs) or bedposts from Home Depot, cut to size, place in fence post toppers (ones with a flat top) - making sure they are level, and then spray paint them.
