I saw this at a restaurant and want to make something like this:
My vision is to make an 8-foot tall Harry Potter Goblet of Fire like this:
I'm going to use a computer to create a storyline with props turning on and off, with dialogue, so I'd like to have the flame turn off/on/off quickly...
Howdy Folks! This is my first post in what feels like eons (on a new account, no less).... and I'm so glad to see this community is still THRIVING, even during the off-season!
I've tasked myself with an elaborate project for next year, and it involves something I have little experience with...
I have always wanted to have "torches" for Halloween that looked like they were from medieval times. Believe me, I have looked but you can't buy them on Amazon. So this year I got enough motivation to try to make one myself. Unfortunately if you google "How to make a medieval sconce" you...
Picked up these last year from HD and was inspired as our house has a cemetery theme.
I wanted to mount them on the columns on either side of our front door so I cut the back of the skulls off using a jig saw and then epoxied a piece of wood towards the top to act as a mount. Originally they...
Browsing for ideas, I came across these DMX flame pots:
These would have been great 20 years ago when I was a kid trying to figure out how to make a flaming hellhole in my parent's yard.
Like I have previously mentioned, I'm going to run with a circus/sideshow/carnival theme this year...
Just ordered two of these babies from Amazon:
LED Flame Effect Light Bulb with 3 lighting modes:
Promo code: DEALCO15 takes it down to $8. I'm thinking I should have ordered half a dozen - but without knowing how they will perform and getting...
Might remember this from an earlier post.
Got some time to do a little work on this guy. Some left over drainage pipe,part of a tomato cage ,some chicken wire,plastic and a heat gun.
Just thought the tail might look like flame a...
This year I saw a large silk flame prop at spirithalloween, and got an idea to use it with the foam insulation coals as one piece. Turned out even better than I thought it would!
You will need:
2 or 3 aerosol cans of great-stuff insulation
5M of orange LED strip with...
I have five flame cauldrons/torches that all take a small orange halogen bulb. (I have one LED lighted cauldron that is quite frankly a dim joke)
Years ago these bulbs were rather easy to locate. Well this week I had two of them burn out and I began to search all over the web for replacements...
has anyone bought this from spirithalloween??

I would like to know the size of the base..
there are no info on the site about size
I used this painting technique: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-Et19MNKkY to make a rust effect on a fake flame calderon from Spirit Halloween. I'm not sure if I'll do more with this, I'm thinking about putting fine sand on it for texture. Here are the results:
To try something different, I wanted to start building tombstones with larger bases, then eventually obelisks and bigger monuments. Last month I finished a large workbench in my garage just for Halloween projects, so I'm finally making some progress. ;)
So I came across some styrofoam packing...
So I live on a farm and this year we are going to have the Halloween party in the barn. I did this once before and it turned out great! The only problem is is that i don't want to go with the same decorating as that time. Any ideas? I need help with lighting due to it being a barn i can't have...
So I was thinking of having my geyser jr go off at a certain point... maybe after the witch does her speech ? I was thinking of getting the black widow witch. So when she talks about summoning hell then the geyser can go off. Maybe have flame sounds play as well.
I'm trying to figure out the...
