  1. Wiper motor to make haunted teeter totter move

    REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    I can build a static prop very well but I kind of such at motors. How do I wire up a wiper motor and hook it up to make a seesaw go up and down? My plan is to make a haunted playground addition to my graveyard this year.
  2. Ever Feel Like...

    General Halloween
    Sometimes I feel a little bad about never taking my son TOTing in the neighborhood. But I ask him every year if he wants to do that and he says no because it's more fun to stay at the haunt with me and scare kids and give out candy. He's usually kind of shy but he really comes out of his shell...

    Thanks. Those use to be boarded up window props but I took them apart and reconfigured them to be fencing.
  4. How do you store your Halloween stuff?

    General Halloween
    I thought this might be an interesting discussion and may help some people out. I have two "storage decks" (as I call them), the shed, a loft in the garage and just this year started hanging stuff on the fence. Here are some pictures. Maybe include some of your pictures so we can see...

  6. It was a "Halloween Miracle" - 2018 Photo Album

    General Halloween
    This year we came as close to getting rained out as ever before. It was beautiful weather for several days leading up to Halloween and was very nice that day until about 11:00 or 12:00. Then the rains came and it got cold. But the Halloween gods smiled upon us and about 1 hour before the...
  7. Your Halloween weather; what's it looking like?

    General Halloween
    Rain. Cold. Ruined Halloween.
  8. Well it was bound to happen eventually - Halloween weater

    General Halloween
    Might be the first Halloween ruined by weather since I've been doing my yard haunt. The worst part is that it's beautiful weather until Halloween, 55 with a 50% chance of rain and gusty winds on Halloween, then back to beautiful weather the rest of the week. ONE day I ask for nice weather...
  9. The new (2018) Halloween soundtrack

    Halloween Music
    I'm a huge fan of the holiday and the movie series so buying the soundtrack was a no-brainer for me. I just got it today and I wanted to pass along to any fellow haunters that might be interested that this soundtrack will be an excellent addition to a yard haunt or a haunted house. The whole...
  10. Static: Graveyard keepers quarters and grounds prop

    Halloween Props
    No it does not. I have built what I refer to as "storage decks" along each side of my house that are about 4 feet wide, one runs about 40 feet long and the other is only about 12 feet long. The larger props (graveyard entrance pillars, bottomless well, etc.) are stored there. It was only...
  11. Static: Graveyard keepers quarters and grounds prop

    Halloween Props
    This will be the new attraction at the yard haunt this year. One side of the yard will be all graveyard, the garage will be an asylum with drop panels and the electric chair and then the other side of the yard will be the Graveyard keepers quarters with the new haunted cabin prop, fence and...
  12. New prop pictures

    General Halloween
    I thought about making it functional but it wouldn't have made much sense to do that without adding a motor of some sort to make it go up and down and then adding a dummy where the head would get chopped off. I've seen videos of those but that is way beyond my skill set. Once I add the severed...

    New guillotine prop. I had some extra lumber from a friend who took down an old play set. Still need to add the rope and I'll hang several severed head props on it.
  15. Ideas wanted: How to add a clown theme to a graveyard/asylum yard haunt theme

    General Halloween
    Well I'm not moving entirely away from the cemetery/asylum theme because I have way too much money and time invested in my haunt to do that. I'm just wanting to add a little bit of a clown theme to it this season since my son wanted to be a clown and I have a clown mask that I can use. So this...
  16. New Album: 2017 Halloween

    General Halloween
    I can't believe it's been 2015 since I posted a album to share with my fellow Yard Haunters. Anyway, here is the 2017 setup. I think the lighting effects that year were the best I've ever done. Enjoy!!!! https://www.halloweenforum.com/members/scary-firefighter-albums-halloween-2017-a.html
  17. You know you're a haunter if.............

    General Halloween
    You know you're a haunter if..... You have a new privacy fence built and you're more excited about the props you can build with the old fence material than you are about the new fence.
  18. Ideas wanted: How to add a clown theme to a graveyard/asylum yard haunt theme

    General Halloween
    I was thinking of going by the dollar store or Wal-Mart and finding several cheap clown masks and then putting them on random props throughout the graveyard (the skeleton in the gallows, a few of the severed heads, the guy in the electric chair getting executed, etc.). Kind of like the clowns...
  19. Ideas wanted: How to add a clown theme to a graveyard/asylum yard haunt theme

    General Halloween
    One thing I'm going to do for sure is paint my chainsaw a bunch of bright, clown colors. I also have two pieces of plywood that I've been dying to use (and need to use to get out of the garage) and I'm thinking it could be some sort of sign for the circus or something like that. Kind of like...
