  1. Shallow Grave Cemetery 2019 Pumpkin Patch

    General Halloween
    For the past couple of years I've made an attempt to grown my own corn + pumpkins to use in my annual Halloween display. After many frustrating and failed attempts I was determined to grow them this year. I went all out and purchased the best seeds, soil and fertilizer possible. I did all the...

    Member Introduction
    Hello, I'm from the upper Midwest, were it is snowing like crazy. I'm 56 years old and have managed a apple orchard and pumpkin patch for years. We did a haunted house and hayride in October. Unfortunately, the owners of the orchard have retired and now the place sits. The retirement has...
  3. Poop head prop for a friend

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    A friend of mine is having a Halloween party this weekend and wants to push the envelope. He wants to be a poophead (he used different language) and asked if I could come up with something to top his costume off. He wanted it to be gross. After some trial and error this is what I came up...

  5. Static: Corn Stalk Ideas

    Halloween Props
    Hey all, I want to put a corn field in my front yard. I am talking about standing individual corn stalks up a foot apart, in rows to give the appearance of a corn field as people walk down the sidewalk. I need something that drives into the ground with a chute that I can drop the bottom of the...
  6. Test Corn Maze - Fox Hollow Farms, FL

    Haunts, Gatherings and Conventions
    I figured I'd start a thread for our upcoming test corn maze that will be planted soon. This will be the first time we will be doing a corn maze, and we figured that 2018 would be a good a time as any to get started. Our farm isn't a year old yet and we have a ton of other non-Halloween related...

  11. Halloween Candy Corn Parfait

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Since I had excess pineapple left over from the last project (Pineapple Jack-o-Lantern), my wife decided to make this quick, simple desert which we tried to get to match the dreaded candy corn. It was pretty tasty and only took about 3 minutes to make. As an added bonus we were able to use some...

    I have done a corn maze in my front yard and am going to do it again this year, with improvements. Is there any interest in a tutorial showing how it is accomplished? If interest I will provide the details and will document this year's build with photos and specifics on construction.
  13. Candy Corn Mix

    General Halloween
    What's your special blend? My famous recipe is basic but effective. It's hard not to have a container sitting around with this filled (although it empties quickly) all October or earlier. Candy Corn Autumn Mix (Brach's) M & M Peanuts Honey Roasted Nuts (the fresher the better)
  14. 2015 Halloween Display

    General Halloween
    Here is some of my day and night time photos of my display. I have also added some videos. The weather we had was mostly cloudy, sprinkled in the afternoon and rained after the TOT's came. I really liked how some of my new props turned out and the lighting and other little things here and there...
  15. Halloween 2016 Corn Maze

    General Halloween
    I get no ToTs to my house. My house is the last house on the left on an unpaved dead end road with no streetlights, and NO ONE decorates on that street. It's as black as a cave. For this reason, I have focused mostly on my Halloween party. Setting up a whole haunt for no one to see is...
  16. Need help, corn balloon pop into popcorn

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    I have to be a food or drink for work, so I came up with an idea. To be a corn cobb, that is easy, cardboard and yellow balloons. Now the hard part, I want the balloons to turn into popcorn when they pop. I figure fill the balloons with something that when popped and exposed to air it will...

    Been working on the setup for over a week now. Had to take most of it down for the impending threat of hurricane Joaquin, but it's all back up now and I've been busy with all the lighting, webbing and other details that bring it all together. I was unable to find a source for free corn stalks...
  18. Wall of Tombstones

    General Halloween
    I'm retiring a classic this year - our front yard will not be a graveyard filled with tombstones. For a change I'll be doing a pumpkin and corn front yard. Made some corn stalks via Allen Hopps and have been slowly collecting foam pumpkins. Will add some great stuff vines and a few scarecrows...

  20. Mad Science Party

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Changing up my plans due to changes in scheduling. Instead of Golden Age Halloween with Lovecraft-inspired storytelling, I am instead planning on a science party, with actual experiments to do. I think this will provide plenty for my guests to do - especially if anyone brings kids. I'm...
