  1. Halloween Props
    Thought I'd share how I'm handling making my pumpkins light up. To sum up: I converted all the store-bought pumpkins to 12V, and everything's wired into the landscape lighting. That way I don't have to run any extension cords, worry about a timer or plugging/unplugging. And I can leave the...

    Hello all. long time reader, rare poster. I've been doing a home haunt for the last 8 years. It's fairly small but seems to be getting bigger and bigger every year.

    For this year's display, I needed spotlights that were portable, multi-color and dimmable. Here's what I made using remote-controlled lights purchased from Amazon and some 2-inch PVC pipe.

    A few years ago everyone had fantastic led stake lights. Gemmy Fire and Ice Especially. Last year they were hard to find and it’s not looking much better this year. Any ideas why and where to find them these days?

    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 recently had a conversation with a friend that works at a custom lighting company. Some of her lamps have plastic candles. She has been throwing away the extra ones. She just gave me my first batch of the leftover candles. They already have factory candle wax drips on them. They also come with...

    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...
