  1. Cauldron Creep

    Halloween Props
    Started this guy about over a year ago, then kinda just left it in the corner to collect dust. Lost motivation for it after my garage got fairly unsafe to be in, long story short, bought a new hose with a huge 2 car garage, so I took advantage of it and got it done. I still might add a few small...
  2. Halloween 2016

    Halloween 2016

    This year I decided to dig up the headstones from the year before. We buried them so they were even more awesome the next year. They were covered in moss and egg sacs! Pretty cool. I also made a giant cauldron and painted bottles to decorate the porch like potions. Little kids loved it! The...
  3. Cannibal (Large) Cauldron

    Halloween Props
    I love some of the cauldrons I've seen here but wanted a large one, and by large I mean where people are put in them . So I've started my first project for the Halloween year with a cauldron. I am creating a full tutorial, once I'm done (will link from here), but wanted to post up the initial...

  6. Static: ideas for this cool feature of cauldron

    Halloween Props
    I'm about to start building cauldron creep prop and have purchased this barrel to serve as the cauldron. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2252470498414744/?ref=messenger_banner The barrel is pretty cool as-is but I may glue a few skulls or bones to it. You have any other ideas? But...
  7. Mermaid!

    Halloween Props
    I am dancing with delight! Our mermaid skeleton came today--well, yesterday--it's late, and I am absolutely happy. I was worried that she would be a cheap piece of junk, but no. She is beautiful, articulated, and a sort of weird grayish color that rather suits a sea creature. We got her from...

  9. Halloween on a budget that worked great!

    Member Introduction
    Last minute decorations made cars slow down and was a hit with trick or treaters. We ran out of candy after an hours and a half in a neighborhood here in Michigan which is normally very quiet. We had over 90 families with multiple kids in tow. I created a congruent theme of a classic...
  10. Mechanical: HELP!! Home Depot Wicked Witches

    Halloween Props
    Recently purchased the store display of these at Home Depot for $21 (told the cashier they were broken. Which they were, the arm brackets were broken off one of the witches two arms, so she took off 50% of the sale price) got them home to test out and the mouths don’t move, cauldron mech doesn’t...

  12. Static: My First Cauldron!

    Halloween Props
    So I haven't been able to really start all my decorating that I want to get done. For the past couple years I haven't really been able to decorate. I did some simple things last year but I literally had to take everything done the night of Halloween. My house is over 100 years old and...

  14. Interactive Cauldron

    General Halloween
    Has anyone ever cast “pretend” spells in a cauldron to entertain trick or treaters on Halloween? Last year we put dry ice in our cauldron, pretending to cast a poison Apple spell, but I’m looking for something a bit more reactive or interesting this year.. Anyone have any ideas or thoughts on...
  15. Other: Need advice - On creating prop people

    Halloween Props
    Hello and good day! Ok, so I ran out of time. I'm just going to blame it on my cats. I have a ton of rescue kitties, and it seems it's one emergency after another with them. So! I saw an idea from Pumpkinrot that I really liked that he/she did a variant several years. There's 3 characters...
  16. Static: Distressing a Shiny Plastic Cauldron

    Halloween Props
    I ordered a plastic cauldron online, but it just began to occur to me, that the effect won't seem as nice because of the shiny plastic look. Before I do anything else with it, I'm wondering if there is a way to make it look old and creepy first. I have seen the oatmeal posts, and honestly that...

  19. Prop Showcase: My interactive cauldron

    Halloween Props
    For my birthday this year I was given this awesome looking metal cauldron, so my brain immediately went to work on how to best incorporate it into our display. We have the rising swamp hag coming out of a stump in our bayou area, so I decided it made most sense next to her. Our bayou area is a...
  20. Mechanical: Gemmy Cauldron Stirring Witch - cauldron not stirring

    Halloween Props
    I've had the witch (Elfaba) for many years. Last year her cauldron will no longer stir (or light up for that matter) Any ideas on how to fix? She still does everything else with the motion sensor built into cauldron. Thanks
