    Here is the Troll set up outside in the yard. I want to make a goblin next. It will be an outside project. I don't want to foam it. Does any body have an idea about what to use that I can use like paper Mache, and stand up to the weather?

    This is literally a 5 gal. Bucket, a tree slice from Hobby Lobby for 12$ , chicken wire and furring strips. It's on YouTube channel at cobwebs and Candlesticks if you want to see what I started with. Jim

    I am jumping on the bandwagon to give out small toys with the full size bars this year. I have already collected mini Play-Doh cans, mini stencils & erasers (will get pencils to go with them) and some Hot Wheels. I wanted to put them into little paper treat sacks - the flat "vintage style" (not...

    Hi y'all! I saw a post on here about a haunted tree, and at some point in the photo gallery, he said he "skinned" it with 1 mil plastic. Does anyone know what that means? I've been looking online for a hint, but I've come up with nothing.

    Thought I'd share a head turner prop which was shortly made into a Christmas tree oscillator. I used a couple of pieces 1/2 threaded pipe, 3/4 PVC, 1' aluminum flat bar, some crap plywood, and a couple of nuts and bolts. The angle wiper motor mounting plate was bought from Frightprops. I'll...
  9. Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    For Halloween this year I repeated a light show in which Halloween and Christmas fought for control of the house ("Christmas Comes Too Soon, or, Halloween Fights Back.") The show required hoisting several Moravian stars into tall trees behind my house. I've since taken them down, all except one...

    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...

    Haunted tree reveal!:D I was cutting it short close on my tree! I was literally finishing the touch ups right as my husband was putting it together yesterday! Even though I did not get a chance to paint it, it still looks great! I got so many compliments on my tree and people couldn’t believe I...

    Hello! Going over the top this year (weather permitting). I have three groups of items that I am looking for quick and dirty suggestions for use: 1) A half dozen large, lightweight bats, poised for flying, not hanging. I have two tree out front, could theoretically string a ling between, hang...

    Hello, I recently bought this Halloween skeleton tree lunger from Big Lots. It has a motion and sound activation function, but does not seem to be working for me. There is a try me button attached to it and that works quite well. I was wondering if anyone knew how I might be able to extend the...

    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...

    Sorry for the picture overload, but this is what all the hard work is about. Seeing a vision come to fruition. I've got 6 of the 7 scenes I planned set up. I need to make some new lava pits before setting up my last scene. Scene one is using swirling red and orange lights is the 3 witches...

    I got these Reaper busts a few years ago at the Dollar Tree but they haven't had them since. I use them for the top of my small pillars for the cemetery but need a few more. If anyone has any clue where to get them let me know! I thought about casting my own but haven't had the best...

    :cool:iSo I’m am almost done with the top part of my tree. I don’t think I’m going to have time to paint it before Halloween but since I used the brown butcher paper, I don’t mind as much.
