    Did some searching but couldnt find any threads where someone hacked a spirit Halloween prop so that when the motion/step pad was triggered it would also have light. Could it be as simple as splicing some wires? curious if anyone has done this. What im looking to do is place the jumping...

    Selling a ton of haunted house items in Roseville, Michigan....I would rather not ship stuff. I really don't have a ton of free time to be going to the post office constantly. All the items are slightly used ( only this season) alot are new because we never got them into play. I will consider...

    A few years ago when I attended Nightmare New England (pro haunt attraction), they lit up a section of trees with a very cool lighting effect. I'll briefly describe it but I doubt I'll be able to find the device that produced it. It would shoot random white points of light at the canopy and then...

    I made a Mortsafe for this year's display. The "lock" will be placed in the back and has a light mounted in it to shine on the displays behind it.

    I am hosting a "funeral home" themed party this year and I typically decorate each room in the house as though it is part of a haunted house walk-through. I am hoping to convert the whole kitchen into a morgue/embalming room. It really would be cool to make the entire room flicker with a...

    Hi All, I have an idea for a floating candelabra that I think will look great in our haunt if I can pull it off. Which is why my first step is coming here and asking you all what you think the best approach might be. I am thinking of taking my little plastic candelabra and turning it into a...

    We've been doing the Halloween trains for years and have gone through multiple versions and train sizes. I decided this year to make it a little larger but also have room for some of our Halloween light up houses and to make more room for some of the larger train cars like the Ecto 1 last...

    Determined to pull off the dino theme this year and working on an idea for an electric fence to cordon off areas where I will be using AtmosFear's Dino Experience projections for "live" dinosaurs. I'm trying to keep the cost down, easy construction (limited tools), materials need to fit in my...

    To whom is reading this. I need help with a project I am working on for this Halloween. First, a little about the prop. I build this pumpkin out of cast material. The same material the hospitals use when you brake a bone and cover the area with casting material. I started with a balloon and...

    I was looking for something to cast a large dinosaur image on our 2-story house's side wall when we set up for our dino haunt and can't wait to try out. It's 15W and hoping it will be bright enough to do what I want and still be creepy lighting. Just ordered it from Amazon. It's a set of...

    I feel like there's a thread on here every few weeks asking for projector recommendations, yet here I am again... I've decided I should try using a projector to decorate, but I don't want it to be so obvious I'm using a projector. So I thought maybe I could hide one inside the shell of a...

    Hello. So every year I grab more and more of those lighted pumpkins to the point where I have a good sized pumpkin patch that the kids really like. Time to make it a little evil and scary by combining it with my graveyard stuff. I wanted to add this from Home Depot but I didn't see it until...

    I want to add some climbing skeletons to my house this year. I've seen tutorials on how to hang them on aluminum siding with Christmas light clips. I have cement board siding on my house which is not as forgiving as aluminum. I could probably find a plastic clip that I could slide underneath the...

    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...

    By using an extension cord as the basis of this project it not only allows you to plug any light into it, but more importantly the extension cord give you the ability to plug two lamps (bulbs) into the cord. I use two 25 watt bulbs (red or red and yellow?) and a 5A fuse. Total construction time...
