Witch with Cauldron & Cat Stand-Up
Excellent indoor decoration!
I hestitated buying this because of previous negative reviews but couldn't resist the online look and description and am SO glad I got it! It is not for outdoor use due to cardboard construction and says that right in the description so the reviewer who was disappointed about that should have read carefully before buying, The cardboard is sturdy and the cut outs come out cleanly which is great. I did some manual trimming of the stand up support on the witch/cauldron so it wasn't visible from front but really couldn't do much about it on the cat - however, I don't think it matters at all! I recommend setting it up in advance so that the fold lines don't show. I don't think it needs any backlighting to look awesome...it just needs to be set up in a place where people won't be walking behind it...a stair landing or a corner are perfect. I am thrilled with this decoration it is an excellent addition to my annual Halloween Party decor.

When I read the description of the witch and cauldron I understood it was going to be cardboard, but I didn't expect it to be thin. The witch was folded into the box and I'm having trouble getting her to stand up. I was hoping for a thicker or stronger item. I paid $34 for cheap cardboard. Very disappointing!

Ok, but not great
I bought this for a Halloween event. It was ok, but I think the cardboard jack-o-lanterns that I bought were better. Some of the smaller parts were already bent when it arrived and the stand was set in such a place that it showed through to the front.

not recommended for outdoor use.
Its very flimsy cardboard, but the cut detail is nice.
We bought this to put in our yard with a floodlight, and create bigger spooky shadows on our home for halloween. Its just not going to last in damp or wet weather. We are going to use it as a template to make one from outdoor plywood.
I feel this was pricey for shiny black cardboard.
