  1. Other "Crystal Ball" Craft

    Halloween Crafts
    Sorry, for the picture quality. I tried to get decent ones but it was a challenge. Did this craft in the public library last October. Pre-painted wood candlesticks with black gel stain then provided patrons with clear glass ornaments and Halloween images printed onto transparency paper...
  2. Static: Wall Masks

    Halloween Props
    Recently, I've been making plaster cloth/ paper mache masks using Mr. Chicken's YouTube tutorial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwjBxShw4TY It's a pretty simple method, although paper towels dipped in paint aren't the easiest medium to work with. The first mask I made using this technique...
  3. The first (and probably last) Ghostbusters Halloween train!

    General Halloween
    Been working on this idea for a while. I've taken an old Ecto 1 remote controlled car with lights and siren that a guy modified to add more lights and wanted to mount it to one of my trains for Halloween. The trick was it had to be high enough to get around the other trains since I've got 3...
  4. Winking Murder Printables!

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Ok, I was looking everywhere for printable cards for the winking murder game. There was a lady on here, who said she would email them if needed, But I am not sure if she is still a member. So I made my own take on the cards. Here they are if you want them! (I printed mine in large size prints...
  5. Prop Showcase: Gate Pillars - Lightweight and Easy to Store

    Halloween Props
    Hi All, One of my big concerns in building props is being able to store them for next year. While I have a decent size house - my decorations tend to be big - the bigger the better. This year I am building a new fence and gate and wanted to make some cool pillars. I work in the sign and...
  6. Static: 3D printed busts?

    Halloween Props
    its been awhile since I posted here. I was foolling around with an old xbox 360 kinect scanner. I scanned myself and 3d printed a small bust. I used skanect software. I did use the paid version. I got to thinking, I know 3d models these can be cut into sections and scaled up. I think it would...
  7. Seeking info on weird old traditions.

    General Halloween
    Ok, I got going through some OLD Halloween cards, and have stumbled on what must have been a symbol for the holiday at one time. Thistle. What's up? Anyone know? it keeps cropping up, especially in cards printed in Germany between 1880 and 1920. Also, anyone know what this pumpkin man...

  9. Something New For Halloween 2016... GMO Labeling!

    General Halloween
    I was very surprised to see "Manufactured With Genetically Engineered Ingredients" printed on several bags of Halloween candy and snacks this year. I'm guessing it is because Halloween stuff is seasonal and the companies had to have all of the special new packaging printed recently. We will...

    Halloween Crafts
    Hi everyone, My theme is a haunted nursery, and in a bookcase I wanted to have some books and board games scattered about...that might be in a nursery...that's haunted. "Ouija" comes to mind for a board game. And I could modify some books. But what I'm really wondering is if anyone has come...

  16. Static: Indoor prop used outdoors, any suggestions on weather-proofing it?

    Halloween Props
    Snindigz has some nice indoor props, they refer to them as "standee's". Here's an example of one I'd like to use in the yard: http://www.shindigz.com/party/dying-to-party-directional-sign/pgp/14szksdps It's printed on cardboard, so there's no way it'll survive any moisture. I can attach it to...
