    Started out just wanting to see how detailed I could make a corpsed skeleton, then it evolved into a corpse on a stake, then into a corpse staked on a tree branch with some severed rotting heads alongside. The corpsing was done with latex, shop towel and great stuff. There are a few other odds...

    I have gotten a hold of a few unique items that I am going to use in building something for my outside displays. In addition, I have quite a collection of string led lights and a lot of tools. Any suggestions that doesn't cost a lot?

    Just a suggestion for metal linkage for your props. I know you can use a variety of things like pvc, metal, aluminum, wood or even string. I just bought these 1/4" thick by 3/4" wide aluminum bars. All 12" long. You can input all kind of sizes or lengths on Ebay. I got 10 for $18 free...

    I want to put about 20 carved foam pumpkins on the stairs in front of our house but I don't want to mess with turning on and off those little battery powered puck lights in each and every one every night for a month. In the past, I've put a string of tiny orange lights in a mason jar inside each...

    If this is in the wrong place, please move it. I just couldn't find a place for diy tools or equipment. Here is my foam saw! (maybe it goes by another name I'm not privy to). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nmhmk9-lEHM&list=PLGlypBAazRo0KYlq2-mSskgi5nj0JJymU[...

    Hey all, I'm finally doing a test run of lights on my props and have a cauldron with embers etc. My problem is that I have purple lights (string lights) in my cauldron and I can't see them at all when I turn out the lights in my garage- my ember lights are fantastic, anybody have any ideas to...

    I've seen a lot of great props on this site. One of the favorite effect that I learned from this site is making fire with lights and grat stuff foam. Ive used this technique for several props. Ive used it for firepits, a devils portal, and most recently a lava pit and burning man. The lights...

    I swear I saw a string of green led lights in the Halloween section of a store recently. I thought it was big lots, but I have been to two and neither of them had them. I've gone back through the threads and can't find a picture anywhere. Did I dream this, or has someone else seen them? (I am...

    I was wondering if there was a way to have a string of lights flicker on and off independently of each other, not just the whole strand. If this has been posted and answered before, my apologies, and could you link the thread. Thanks in advance for your help!

    It depends on if I can figure out a way to feel safe about it again. \ So this happened today. It seems to have happened before the power was even turned on, though I'm not sure how it could unl;ess they came on almost an hour earlier than they were set to, or possibly didn't turn off last...

    As we start to pack up string lights, I thought I'd share my quick and easy method of storing them to prevent tangles. First, get a piece of relatively sturdy cardboard, approximately 9x12" or so. I'm using the side of a box that would otherwise be in the recycling. Cut a short slit on the top...

    Anyone had any luck in finding string lights that are actually purple and not pinky-purple?
  15. Halloween Props
    At the second BL I found one of three working, so I bought the working one, after testing several times. All would light up and eye move, but the lids did not shut completely. After getting it home, it too would not shut the eyelids completely. Tried, unsuccessfully to force a rest, but no good...

    I have a trail that runs through the woods. I want to construct a spider web that requires people to stoop very low to pass under. I would love for it to be a glow in the dark web. We have no power out there so string lights are out. Glow in the dark painted string would have to be " recharged "...

    Well, here's the start to my version of a CC, gonna be more of a Cauldron Reaper. The usual spray foam for the coals but did a bit of a twist for the burning EFX. Used a 30 light string of regular orange LED's and a custom made 20 light string of red flicker LED's. The flicker LED's are like the...

    I was going through stuff and found an unopened box of electric firecrackers. These are the kind that looks like a group of Chinese firecrackers, they plug into the wall, and the bottom two crackers are electric and make a loud "popping" noise. There are also LEDs in a string that blink, I've...

    I'm adding a fog machine to my display this year, first time ever. It's a Chauvet 901. I'm planning on hooking it up to a cauldron and making a chiller of sorts with frozen water bottles. I have a small string of LED C3 lights that I'd like to put in the bottom of the cauldron to make the fog...
