  3. Mechanical: Turned a head turner prop to a Christmas tree oscillator

    Halloween Props
    Thought I'd share a head turner prop which was shortly made into a Christmas tree oscillator. I used a couple of pieces 1/2 threaded pipe, 3/4 PVC, 1' aluminum flat bar, some crap plywood, and a couple of nuts and bolts. The angle wiper motor mounting plate was bought from Frightprops. I'll...

  6. Prop Showcase: Gate Pillars - Lightweight and Easy to Store

    Halloween Props
    Hi All, One of my big concerns in building props is being able to store them for next year. While I have a decent size house - my decorations tend to be big - the bigger the better. This year I am building a new fence and gate and wanted to make some cool pillars. I work in the sign and...

  9. Static: Was my wife right?

    Halloween Props
    While roaming around my local Menards looking for materials to complete my projects, one of the things I was looking at was the different foam insulation panels for my pillars. Now usually my wife just lets me do what ever it is I dream up while decorating outdoors without much input except the...
  10. Pose N Stay Skeleton Stand - Room For Improvement

    Product Reviews
    While this design seems like it should work, it will only keep your skel semi-upright on a flat surface (he kind of lists to one side). It won't work if you try to use it outdoors in the yard, on the driveway if it's sloped, or even on thick plush carpeting. The main support fits together...

    I'll be the first to tell you this is not God's gift to Halloween crypts. To those of you who construct an actual building every year complete with electrical wiring and indoor plumbing - my hat's off to you. This is much simpler. My whole aim from the beginning was to create a crypt that I...

  14. Static: Flat concrete to "lumpy" ground

    Halloween Props
    Now accepting suggestions for making fake mounds of ground to place on a flat concrete floor. Can't drill into the concrete and don't want to haul in buckets of dirt.

    Halloween Props
    Has anyone ever or know of anyone that has, repurposed an old projection tv for prop use? I'm trying to figure out what to do with this tv since we have replaced it with a flat screen. Other than hauling it off I haven't gotten any other ideas for re-using this thing :rolleyes:
