  1. Atmosphere Effects: Boiling candy cauldron trick

    Halloween Props
    I'm thinking of doing this for the plastic cauldron I use to keep my candy in. Currently I have it on top of a fire pit made with the great stuff foam and orange christmas lights. The kids then have to reach in to the "cooking" pot to get their candy. It looks pretty good but the kids are...

    Okay, I'm new here, but any help would be so greatly appreciated :-) I'm making an 8X10-inch paper that will have simply a few words written in (fake) blood. I'm going to mail it to a friend, and it'll then be put into a picture frame and hung up by the friend I give it to. I'm not a...

  4. Huge Dry Erase Board - Ideas?

    General Halloween

  7. Other: Can't find the post on dryice bubbles was on a news show

    Halloween Props
