  1. Static: Foldable coffin ??

    Halloween Props
    Work is about to get ugly for me so I need to start my decorative planning pretty quickly. I have limited storage room for any newer items so I am trying to make things as tiny as possible. As the title says, I am thinking about a foldable coffin. If I were to build one (not for actual human...
  2. Target -- 2019

    General Halloween
    Was in Target this week and saw these kind of cool Harry Potter-licensed lamps. The bulb sits down inside the base. For anyone doing a Potter theme though these might look great on two entrance columns for example. Didn't see the price on them and might be up on the website. They were refreshing...
  3. How early do you start yard decorating?

    General Halloween
    I was curious what the consensus is for outside decorations.* Since Halloween items begin to go on sale as soon as Memorial Day is over, when do you like to start letting everyone know you are "open for business" in October? We've been doing about three weeks out from October 31st. Does...
  4. Static: Want to convert snowman into pumpkin monster. need ideas

    Halloween Props
    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...

  6. Lighting: DIY Medievil Sconce

    Halloween Props
    I have always wanted to have "torches" for Halloween that looked like they were from medieval times. Believe me, I have looked but you can't buy them on Amazon. So this year I got enough motivation to try to make one myself. Unfortunately if you google "How to make a medieval sconce" you...
  7. Prop Showcase: Pirate ship and treasure chest out of stuff laying around

    Halloween Props
    I looked at my hammock stand and saw a Pirate ship - I had PVC laying around as well as old canvas paint "tarps" . I used torn bed sheets for the sails. I will be adding a fog machine, audio soundtrack for ocean waves, creaky sounds and Pirates as well as torches inside the ship for extra...
  8. Prop Showcase: Modifying 18" fiberglass skulls from Home Depot

    Halloween Props
    Picked up these last year from HD and was inspired as our house has a cemetery theme. I wanted to mount them on the columns on either side of our front door so I cut the back of the skulls off using a jig saw and then epoxied a piece of wood towards the top to act as a mount. Originally they...
  9. Miss Havisham wedding cake

    REQUEST FOR TUTURIALS GO HERE
    Hi - Wondering if anyone has ever made a Miss Havisham (from Great Expectations, of course) type wedding cake, meaning: rotting, collapsing, etc. - not a real cake, just a set piece. I looked for a tutorial here and on Pinterest, but I can't find anything. It doesn't seem like an original...
  10. Static: Is this mannequin head too simple?

    Halloween Props
    I am horrible with painting. Well, not ALL painting. Give me 4 walls, a roller and a brush and I can make that room look amazing. When it comes to any other form of painting, I just can't seem to get it down. I have painted this head 3 times already! I am calling it done. Because if I try...

  12. Static: What to do with a 1/2 mannequin ?

    Halloween Props
    I have this 1/2 mannequin that I have no idea what to do with. Last year I sat it in a chair in clothes. So it just looked like an headless guy. It was boring. Does anyone have a better idea of what I could maybe do with it? The arms stay behind its back. I can move them forwards if it has a...
  13. Recording technology

    Member Introduction
    I like to decorate my front yard so that adults and older kids are entertained, but little kids aren't traumatized. Last year I had a bazillion pumpkins everywhere, as well as two suburban skeleton guys in lawn chairs with a fire pit. It was a surprisingly big hit, with people posing for...
  14. Dollar General 2018

    General Halloween
    Found new Peanut mugs at Dollar General and some solar dancers. I thought the zombie dancer looked a little familiar so I had to repaint him https://www.halloweenforum.com/members/deadna-albums-2018-picture556621-dollar-general-items.html...

    General Halloween
    I didn't see anything on there yet like props, but last year the had some good stuff. Maybe they will have more this year. Some of the fabric patterns looked nice though. I really like these: https://www.joann.com/halloween-cotton-fabric-44in-glow-in-the-dark-haunted-house/15548365.html...

    Halloween Props

  17. Finishing Touches needed...Scary Tales-Nursery Crimes

    General Halloween
    I am almost done setting up but some scenes are seriously lacking. Would appreciate any feedback. The 3 blind mice and goldilocks are the worst I think but I have looked at this far to long and need an unbiased opinion and ideas. This isn't all but you get the idea.
  18. Double posts

    Site Issues and Feedback
    It's happened to me several times lately and seems to be happening to others as well. Mods, can this be looked into?
  19. Pictures in Photo Albums

    Site Issues and Feedback
    Earlier this week, when I looked at my photo albums, three were fine but in the other three the pictures were enlarged and distorted. Today when I looked, all the albums are in a funk and so am I. :( Do you know what has happened and how I can fix this? I view the forum from a desktop...
  20. Just an FYI for a place to get Halloween stuff

    Links
    Don't know if anyone has brought this up before, but I decided to check out the online sales site called LetGo.com. I did a search for Halloween and a bunch of props, costumes, and decor came up. A lot looked they were going for some decent prices. Just thought I'd throw that out there as a...
