    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Super excited that it's only 145 days away from Halloween! This year, for our fourth Party Haunt at this residence, we are doing a clown/carnival theme. We've had a few planning sessions, began prop building and and started the build a bit early to ensure we can add the all fine touches. We...
  2. Static: Bad moon on the bayou

    Halloween Props
    Sorry all, I could not figure out how to rotate the pics. :( This year, my wife challenged me to create a theme based on a swamp or bayou. I started with some old fence panels turned on their side and attached. I added a porch of pallets and cut one pallet in half to create a dock. The...
  3. Static: shack help / need advice from builders

    Halloween Props
    So here's my idea. I found this awesome window curbside on the way into work one day. I have the thought to making a shack for it, but making it collapsible (because no storage). So basically, a 4'x8' sheet of plywood for the back. the sides would be 2 - 1'x8' strips, but hinged in the...
  4. Need ideas for a startle prop

    Halloween Props
    Okay, so I was planning on building a animated standing zombie and a monster in a box/coffin for next Halloween. But now I am thinking about doing something different with my yard. I am going to keep my 3 witches, but I am thinking of moving my cemetery, reaper and ghost over to the neighbors...
  5. Static: Let's see those custom, foam, house skins please!

    Halloween Props
    I just saw a post in a thread by Nightfisher. He made a custom foam door skin that looked awesome... a lot more detailed than my stuff. Hopefully he'll share that with us here. Anyway, that inspired me to start a thread soliciting custom house/door/whatever skins. So please post away! For our...
  6. Static: Witch Shack WIP

    Halloween Props
    Well for whatever reason the site will no longer accept a direct link from Photobucket from me although I've posted many pics in the past. So here is a link to the pic if anyone is interested. I posted about the photo posting issue under general Halloween but the new Admin saw fit to relegate it...

  8. Static: Witch / Cemetery Shack

    Halloween Props
    Worked today on the witch / cemetery shack for our yard haunt. We have been given tons of pallets. Hoping to save the facade somehow to use again next year. Decided to put the witches and cemetery scenes on the large lot next to our home,.,, that way we can do a long walking path out to it. Will...
  9. Static: swamp shack

    Halloween Props
    Hey everyone I am doing a swamp/voodoo theme this year and have a vinyl shed out back and want to make it look like an old shack. I have two fence panels I never used and are now old and weathered nice. I am planning on striping the pieces off fence and want to attach them to the shed. That's...
  10. Static: Bayou shack WIP

    Halloween Props
    Might not look like much yet, but hopefully with a roof and porch, this'll resemble an old shack on the bayou. This is 2 panels that'll be bolted together and, as soon as I figure out how, the roof and "porch" will also just bolt together so it can be stored in the off season. Specs are 5'x8'...
