  1. Static: Toe Pincher Coffin from Pallets DIY

    Halloween Props
    After seeing some really cool toe pinchers made from pallets, I decided to give it a shot. I was able to score about half a dozen pallets from work which I put in the back yard to help age for about six months, some of them were already pretty weathered. The first order of business to get...
  2. Lighting: LED String WARNING!!!!

    Halloween Props
    Ask and ye shall receive ... sometimes. Here's a close-up shot of an LED that had damage. This is what they all typically look like damage wise. Here's a section of the strand that is even further evidence; you might not be able to tell from the photo, but this is one continuous strand...
  3. Other: Opinion needed: Old Radio

    Halloween Props
    If you were going to use it as a prop, then I wouldn't want to refinish it. You have the skeleton which suggests to much age. You have the old school songs that suggests age. Doesn't seem to me that a old-as-new radio blends in. If anything, use it in old shape until after HW, then restore it...
  4. Static: Oil Clay Sculpture

    Halloween Props
    So I was playing around with some clay and ended up sculpting an entire head on a blucky skull that I had covered in paper mache. I like it so much that I want to keep it. So I need some advice from the group. How do I make it permanent? I was considering painting several coats of drylock since...

    I think the commercial web shooters are ridiculously over-priced. I made my own for next to nothing. Check out my homemade web shooter.
  8. LED String - Slow Flicker Mod

    After my botched hot coals prop where the cheap LED strands could have started a FIRE, I'm wanting to find a solution. The cheap LED strands that I first attempted to use are not only a potential fire hazard, but they also aren't waterproof or even moisture resistance. So, I started looking...

  10. Lighting: LED String WARNING!!!!

    Halloween Props
    I just wanted to let you guys know about a situation that I came across while building a Hot Coals prop with LED string lights. As most of you probably have seen on here, you can create some awesome glowing hot coals with LEDs and Great Stuff insulation foam. However, as I was finishing up my...

    Homemade Webshooter Why pay all that money for something that you can make for a couple of bucks? I already had a glue gun, so for about $2 I made my own webshooter: http://www.halloweenforum.com/halloween-props/87013-webshooter.html
  14. How to Corpse a Bucky

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Cont'd Once you have it the way you want, you can start covering him with latex. I picked up a gallon of ammonia free latex, but you don't need anywhere near that much for this project. I might have used a little more than a pint for this one project, so I have plenty left for more projects...
  15. How to Corpse a Bucky

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Ok, so I found a Bucky on clearance from a medical supply company, needless to say, I had to have it. So, this is how I made it from boring anatomical skeleton, to a gross corpse. I decided that I wanted to have a burned at the stake look, so I set about getting Bucky prepped. BTW, I'm expanding...
  16. Graveyard Fence

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    Update 2010 I made several more sections of fence this year, so I have a few tips from the second go round. - First of all, I took MonkeyBasic's advice and painted everything before I started to create the fence. This made everything MUCH easier to paint once assembled. All I had to do was...

    Try searching Craigslist in your area for pallets. It took me a couple of weeks, but I found a whole stack of free pallets that way. Now I'm looking for a free, or very cheap, rain barrel.

  19. Static: Toe Pincher Fever

    Halloween Props
    Hybrid? This looks more like a hybrid coffin; toe pincher top, but it has a regular bottom shape instead of the "toe pincher" design. Regardless, it is still a good looking coffin. I've been thinking about these pallet coffins, as I've got a stack of pallets in the back yard now that I'm...
  20. Graveyard Fence

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    1/2" Conduit Correction I just realized that I mistakenly gave the wrong size of conduit that I used. I actually used 1/2" electrical conduit, and NOT 1/4" since that would be too small. I'm sure everyone would realize it when they went to buy it, but just in case... Also, here's how I fixed a...
