  1. Witchy Swamp Lanterns

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    I know how popular these are, and I LOVE the effect they give to just about any swampy or witchy scene. So I decided to make my own! I'll post some step-by-steps with pictures here in the coming days. I've seen lots of versions of these over the years, and I've watched a couple tutorials...
  2. Lighting: A variation on the "swamp lantern"

    Halloween Props
    So I stood in line at Michael's for at least 20 minutes this past weekend with a bunch of people buying Christmas stuff and I wondered to myself "I wonder what these people would do if they knew I was here to buy supplies for next year's Halloween and I don't care about the Xmas stuff...."...

  4. Head in a Jar Prank

    Halloween Props
    There are several online tutorials for creating the head in a jar illusion. I have never been able to recreate this. Even using the exact same programs some of the features aren’t available to me for some reason. Is there anyone that knows how to do this, and would be willing to help out...
  5. Other Graveyard terrarium problem

    Halloween Crafts
    Hi, I thought I posted this once before but I don't see it. Anyway, the problem I am having with my "graveyard in a jar" project is that the underground items (casket and skeleton) don't show up when placed up against the glass. When I place the soil over them, it gets in between the glass and...

  9. Static: witch potion jars

    Halloween Props
    I know these are very simple and basic but I had time to kill so wanted to dress up a few of our witch jars. Got some wooden dowel caps at the craft store and glued them to the jar lids. Painted them black then brushed on a bit of brown. The variety will look neat.

    Hello Haunters, last year I made an okay HIJ prop with Cyclops head in a Jar. It fell a little short of my expectations due to my lack of photo editing software skills. If anyone knows how to stretch our the sides of the face to make a better version of it that would help. I plan on putting...
