  2. Other: Recommending PVC Pipe Cutter for prop building

    Halloween Props
    Last year I had some large size PVC pipe to cut and wanted a clean cut without all the plastic debris from sawing. Not being someone with a lot of tools or being handy constructing things, I ended up buying an Orbit "1/2 inch-to-2 inch PVC cutting tool" from Home Depot. A bit on the pricey side...

  6. Pneumatic: Yet another DIY pneumatic cylinder

    Halloween Props
    My apologies if this design has been posted many times, I sure someone else has thought of it before. And I agree with the experts here, use a real cylinder if building an elaborate and expensive prop. My props are for a hayride, I can manually operate and reset the props. This is a single...

  8. 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...

  11. Static: My Unorthodox pumpkin

    Hey Haunters! This week I built a haunt panel for my nuclear meltdown zombie area in my haunt! I tried to use pretty inexpensive items and it came out fantastic!

    Halloween Props
    Hi All, Experimenting with new stuff this year and saw lots of great projects and videos about dispersing fog around instead of just letting it out of the machine.

  20. Static: Pumpkin Man Ideas

    Halloween Props
    I've built a 9ft pumpkin man out of 2 inch pvc pipe. I wrapped the pipe with pipe insulation to break up its lines and look like vines, but it still looks like pipe. Outside of sanding the pipe down and texturing it with epoxy putty I can't think of what to do to get rid of the pipe look. Any ideas?
