    This is my third attempt at making a scarecrow mask, and I think I finally got the process down. I still need weather it, but unfortunately this project will be on the back burner for a bit while I finish up some commissions.

  4. Preserving Corn Stalks for Use in Haunt Display

    General Halloween
    I grew my own corn this year to use for my haunt display. The stalks are nearly dry and ready to be preserved. I found some floral preservative at Hobby Lobby but it looks like it contains similar ingredients to the standard acrylic spray sealer that is ½ the price. I was thinking about hanging...

  7. Static: Pumpkin Sentinels - 2018

    Halloween Props
    Hello Fellow Haunts! So this was my big project for last year. I added a back row to my archway as well, but I wanted to create something new and exciting! I built these two Jacko Sentinels to guard my back yard during the October season. They are built with a PVC frame and base. I used...
  8. Static: Using natural tree branch for scarecrow pole

    Halloween Props
    If I were to make a scarecrow and choose to use a thick branch (e.g. 1.5") for the vertical pole of the cross, any tips on getting scarecrow to stand? I had the idea of inserting the branch into a couple foot section of 2" PVC. Then I would either build a base for the PVC (concrete block or...

  12. Prop Showcase: The Nightmare Before Christmas

    Halloween Props
    I decided to do The Nightmare Before Christmas as my theme this year, for the 25th anniversary of the movie. There is so much material there to work with. In hindsight, I should have started building in June. I did not get as many characters as I wanted, but it still turned out pretty good. I...
  13. Electronic/Software: Problems with trigger for Spirit Halloween scarecrow

    Halloween Props
    Hello- I'm trying to make a sitting scarecrow prop work from a remote trigger. The trigger is just a relay with a remote control. I've done this before with other props (just yesterday the jumping spider) but I can't figure out what I'm missing with this one. I expected to use a 3.5mm audio...

  15. Pumpkinfest (a/k/a my early Halloween)

    General Halloween
    Historically I've waited for October to decorate outdoors. So this year I decided to do two Halloweens; the usual from early October on, but until then I am doing a much less elaborate pumpkin and harvest themed Halloween that I am going to disingenuously call Pumpkinfest if anyone mentions...

  19. Mechanical: Animated Scarecrow Project

    Halloween Props
    Along with the mask thread, this is a placeholder for the full animated scarecrow. I am just going to rock a chair with servos, light the eyes and move the head but still I want to note the entire process. So this part is completed as of today, the arduino and wiring, I think the code should...
