  1. Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Super excited that it's only 145 days away from Halloween! This year, for our fourth Party Haunt at this residence, we are doing a clown/carnival theme. We've had a few planning sessions, began prop building and and started the build a bit early to ensure we can add the all fine touches. We...

    If I were to make a scarecrow and choose to use a thick branch (e.g. 1.5") for the vertical pole of the cross, any tips on getting scarecrow to stand? I had the idea of inserting the branch into a couple foot section of 2" PVC. Then I would either build a base for the PVC (concrete block or...
  3. REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    I want to make a ouija board where people can stand in front of it and ask it a question, and perhaps have someone on the underside/hidden under the table and be able to move the little pointer around to talk back to them. I feel like this can be done with magnets perhaps or something but I have...

    Hello all! Anyone else pining for the season? This year's haunt theme is the last voyage of Frankenstein's ship. We plan on converting the front porch into a ship and turning the front yard into an arctic sea. Wondering if anyone has thoughts on creating icebergs, lit from within. My initial...
  5. REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    Hello Forum, I have been off line for some time as in 2017 the local town made us an offer we could not refuse on the homestead. Long story short we relocated to a much smaller property and 2018 was our first year in the new place. I managed to get my yard set up and the neighbors and kids...

    Just starting to plan our Vampire Funeral theme this year, and I'm wondering... Is it possible to rent a hearse for an evening? I'd love to have this in the driveway when guests arrive, in front of my garage-door-turned-wall-crypt. Have any of you done this? Where do you rent from...a...

    I decided to post a thread of my progress pictures this year! I had so much fun last year with my 2018 "Voodoo Island Hulaween" theme, but I did not post pictures as I went along here on HF. I did post some pictures and lots of video on Facebook and here is the link to that public album: Log...

I am still unsure about what i'm gonna do with it, either i put a head prop behind it with a light and motion detector for...

    In the past the front row of my graveyard was a series of dollar store coolers turned upside down. For some I put the lid on the bottom for a bit more decoration. They hid the lights that illuminated the rows behind them. The trouble with these came at night because they were essentially dead...

    Happy New Year to everyone on our Halloween Forum, Can you believe that it is only 289 more Days until Halloween 2019? Before you know it, it will be here and Gone. Well.....may be not that quickly, but.....Time sure seems to be Flying as we all get older. Ok......sooooo I am really really...

    Has anybody ever used, or has considered using, a caged IBC (Intermediate Bulk Container) tote as a projection booth for house projections? For those that may not come across the term IBC it’s normally a caged plastic tank on a pallet and the usual capacity is 1,040 litres (229 imperial...

    This is my front yard decorations for Halloween 2018. I used a lot of Plastic Pumpkin Pails and Pumpkin Lights as well as a wooden fence.
  13. Halloween Props
    After I moved here and produced my first Halloween yard my neighbors asked what I was going to do for Christmas. I had no idea that I moved onto a road where everyone did Christmas displays. So I slowly transitioned into a Nightmare Before Christmas theme. Each year I just make or add one...

    Hi all, Halloween isn't as popular in the UK as it is in the US, but I'm hopefully going to change that over the next few years as I build my drive / front garden (yard?) display, well at least in my leafy part of West Sussex anyway. I have a lot of prop building experience (R2D2, 2 x Daleks...

    I need help from all you electronics gurus out there. Here's my problem: I want to build a spider prop, based on this spider The abdomen of the prop will be about 6 to 8 inches in diameter. The front and rear legs will be about 12 to 16 inches long, and the side legs will be proportionately...
  16. General Halloween
    We're in the UK and have been doing a display in our front garden (yard) since 2014. In the five years it's grown a little with gravestones, earth breakers, full skeletons, occasionally a fog machine, and this year I had an Atmosfear projection in the window, so nothing fancy and pretty basic...

    Haunted tree reveal!:D I was cutting it short close on my tree! I was literally finishing the touch ups right as my husband was putting it together yesterday! Even though I did not get a chance to paint it, it still looks great! I got so many compliments on my tree and people couldn’t believe I...

    Sorry for the last minute, super specific issue, but.... I have a 3rd stall*** I'd like to project on to from behind. It will be cleaner and safer to back project than to put the projector out on the drive way. I am looking for a cheap and super easy way to set this up tonight. The door area...

    Hi guys, I'm just wondering what you all do to cover your garage doors? Last year I bought photography back drops and taped them on, they were a huge hit, the parents loved taking photos of their kids in front of them. I am changing it up a little having bought new scenes for this year. I was...
