  1. 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. 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. 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. 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...

    Got an email that the Window FX Plus unit I apparently looked at online at Home Depot was now reduced from $89.98 and down to $49.00. Deliverable to your home or to select stores it looks like. Free delivery. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Window-FX-Plus-Projector-28088/304865437 Looks like one...
  6. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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...
  11. Halloween Costume Ideas
    Hello everyone. Long time lurker, first time thread starter. This year we are planning a dark carnival theme for the front of my house. the whole family are getting involved this year which i'm super happy about. My wife wanted to try out a test make up on my 12yr Niece. I felt it looked so...
  12. 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...

    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. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. Halloween Props
    I've been trying to be good and stay focused on the main project ( http://www.anunorthodoxhalloween.com/blog/wp-content/gallery/2018-buildup/C3BD7866-6DF1-40E7-98C5-997376B42AB1.jpeg?i=1209935753 ), but you know when we pulled the tree out there was no way I wasn't saving any interesting bits of...
  17. 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. 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...

    Hello from New York! I came upon this website late October last year and I found it again this year and thought I would join because your Forums looked so cool with all the decorations you share and everything! :):):)
  20. Halloween Music
    I'm sure this is common knowledge for a lot of folks, but... So my wife has been watching the British Midsomer Murders on Netflix and she noticed that 50% of 'em have this freaky little scream repeating off in the distance in the night time scenes. We both listened to it and figured it was some...
