  2. Static: Pumpkin Bucket Skellie

    Halloween Props
    A quick and easy DIY project. I used a skeleton from Walmart, which screws together. You'll also need a pumpkin bucket, some black acrylic paint (because the face was barely painted at all), and some lights - I'm using two "amber" color Mr Beams porch step lights from Home Depot, because I...

  6. Static: Pallet Pumpkin

    Halloween Props
    This pallet wood pumpkin project was so easy to do from start to finish. It started with the last pallet wood I had disassembled last year. Then I scavenged from the kids craft paint stash. Some dry brushing the paint on and swiping it off and it was done in time for the little trick or...
  7. Atmosphere Effects: Stabilizing Project on it's side

    Halloween Props
    I had this problem last year, probably going to have it again. How does everyone keep your projector stable? I have two in the garage that need to go vertical and I have a hell of a time getting them to sit on their sides. The slightest movement will of course mess them up. I wish you could...

  15. Facebook Hauntproject group

    Links
    I think one of the worst losses for our haunt community was when Perfessor Evil passed away unexpectedly and his comprehensive AMAZING build tutorial site hauntproject.com went down. We lost so much stuff when that site went dark. :( Dudeamis (over on our sister site Haunt Forum) collected much...

  20. The Kodiak Queen's Kracken, Oh My!

    General Halloween
    Saw this story about a large scale art project that brought an old WWII fueling vessel (abandoned ghost ship I guess) back from the grave and made it the target of a giant kraken. So cool. Talk about large scale. Thought some of the technique used for this project might inspire smaller pirate...
