  2. Modifying a "spotlight"

    General Halloween
    Hi all! I bought a "spotlight" several years ago, but have never used it. I finally got my skeletons up into a tree in our front yard... and I thought it would be fun to shine a spotlight on them. So I put in a bulb, plugged it in... and it's really just a bare bulb. So it's super bright for...

    Halloween Props
    Cordless, so no safety-hazard extension cords running across the yard, taxing your already over-worked electrical system. Cheap, as in under $3.00 each, if you make a moderate amount of them. The basic concept is a mini LED flashlight with light filtering gel film of your color choice inside a...

    Halloween Props
    Need some guidance on LED's. I have been making new LED spots today and when I turn them on, they create a circle within a circle (sorry, that's the best I can do for a description). I have read where people sand the LED to remove the inner circle, which I did. The problem is that by sanding...
