  3. Fireplace Flames

    Halloween Props
    I'm building a styrofoam fireplace and would like to run a video of fire burning on a HDTV sitting behind it. I went on youtube and there are lots of videos with pretty crackling fire and burning embers but none that are "spooky" enough. By spooky I mean there must be videos of fire with...

  8. How do you display your spirit balls?

    General Halloween
    Curious how everyone displays their spirit balls. They are kind of awkward to display especially the 14" ones due to their size. Right now I have 2 flanking our fireplace and a third I have not even taken out of storage. Post your pics of spirit balls in your decor. Here is mine:
