  1. Ceramic Ghost tealight holders

    Wanted to Buy
    Hello, I've been looking for two tealight holders I had in the late 80's. I've found their smaller versions, but want to find the larger pair. They are from Cannon Falls and came in two sizes: 6-ish inch versions and larger 12-ish inch versions. I am not great at computer manipulation, but I...
  2. Other: Zombie Dolls from Party City

    Halloween Props
    Party City has three zombie dolls: Bloody Mary, Tammy Terror and Bride Doll. They have blue glowing eyes and say a few lines about themselves, apparently in the third person, like "She's the ghoul of your dreams" as opposed to saying the phrases in first person, like one would expect a doll to...

    Howdy Folks! This is my first post in what feels like eons (on a new account, no less).... and I'm so glad to see this community is still THRIVING, even during the off-season! I've tasked myself with an elaborate project for next year, and it involves something I have little experience with...

    General Halloween
    I haven’t seen this started yet, if it has I’ll pull this one down. What worked this year for you. What did you change or improve? What were the things that you broke your arm patting yourself on the back for? What didn’t work? What got kicked to try later bin? Weather is always a...

    Halloween Props
    Super quick/cheap rotten pumpkins. I didnt take any photos of the process, but it was pretty easy. Some of the techniques I used were from people that paper mache after they stuff and tape them but I didnt have time for all that.... I used plastic bags of different sizes (grocery and large...

    Halloween Props
    Hi all! I've been meaning to get back on here, but I've been so busy building stuff. Anyway, now that I'm finished with my latest idea, I thought I'd post some pics and videos.

    Halloween Props
    It's been the summer where nothing went right, and we're just NOW starting our Halloween build :eek: Since time is short, we're dyeing canvas drop cloths from Harbor Freight with black Rit dye, which gives a brownish-gray color of varying intensity- almost a tie-dye effect. Then we sponge on...

  11. Static: painting order suggestion??

    Halloween Props
    Well after decade we finally are making our cemetery fence towers. 18"x18"x48", 1x2 frame on a 2x3 frame base. 1/2" blue foam covering it, 2" foam tops. We have routed out blocks 12" long by 6" deep so there is only one vertical grout line per horizontal line. I know, a pic would be easier...
  12. Static: My newest tombstone - wood

    Halloween Props
    I had one foam blank left from the sheet I bought a few months ago and decided to go for something different that I have not seen a lot of - wooden tombstones. Kind of an old west look, but I'm a firm believer in variety in my graveyard so I went ahead with the carve. First I drew a rectangle I...
