    Last year I bought those jewelry hand stands at Michaels on sale, determined to make hand wall scones out of them. I've gotten about halfway through and now I'm not sure how to make the hands spooky. Should I just paint them a creepy color? The other thing I was thinking was to turn them into...
  2. General Halloween
    Hey y'all! Going to start decorating next weekend :D Does anyone have any tips on how to do spiderwebs indoors? I'd like to kind of do a tunnel-spider feel for my little hallway, but it has no places to put the webs. I also would like to hang some chains, and mount some Styrofoam tombstones &...

    Just thought I'd share my version of the Alphabet "Message" Wall from Stranger Things. Finally got it finished! I'm pretty happy with how it came out. It's going to be a lot of fun for the Halloween party! These are WS2811 individually addressable LED's (C9 style bulb cover) controlled by an...

    As I begin to get into the Halloween spirit, it occurs to me that there is a product which may come in quite handy for Halloween props. "Never Wet" by Rustoleum, is a super hydrophobic coating that can be sprayed onto anything, and liquids WILL NOT stick! This could come in handy for carved...

    Here's an overview of my Han Solo in Carbonite build for an upcoming feature Halloween Haunt in Charlotte, NC. The finished prop hangs on the wall using a TV wall mount bracket, so it can be moved and re-hung easily. The key with all of my builds is to use as many ready-made materials at...

    Has anyone found a good way to attach wall coverings (scene setters) to the walls in their house? I cannot find tape or adhesive that makes these stick without taking the paint off of the walls. Last year I used staples, but it was a HUGE pain to take them all out, fill them, and repaint over...

    Since my rear projection wall is near completion I've started on the other big project on my list. I'm going to be skinning the front of my house pretty much the same way i did the projector wall. I also have some smaller things ill be working on in between so thought i would start a thread to...

    So I have 6 Evil Mad Scientist Flickering LED light boards http://shop.evilmadscientist.com/productsmenu/792 that run off 2 AA batteries. I want to wire them to a wall wart. It seems that each battery is 1.5 volts, so what volt/ amp wall wart would I need to power all six? I'm guessing 3 volts...

I'm kind of flying blind on this because i've never done it before but it seems to be turning out nicely. hopefully the facade will come out as well. at the moment I'm...

    Has anyone masked off a mortar grid them applied heavy MM then pulled off the tape for a stone effect? I vaguely remember way back doing something similar with just joint compound on a knee wall in an attic bedroom but that was much memory loss ago.

    ("I don't care what anybody says, I'm going to take a bath." ) He hadn't owned the house very long, and the plumbing was now finally turned "On", and he really needed a bath! (Always THE best reason for one.) It had once been a "Pink" bathroom, featuring all "Pink" fixtures. The toilet had...

    Made this as an accent piece for our new witch hut this year. Rewired some LED candles to run off of a 5v wall adaptor, then combined them with a skull on a foam board base. Came out really good I think!

    Our witch Hagetha has become tired of standing out in the wind and rain for a month every year and has demanded that I build her a shelter. I've been thinking about it for months, but time, storage space and money have been keeping me from doing it. While working on the base for our pumpkin king...

    I'm trying to create a lighted papercraft witch hat that projects a face underneath the hat. Tried everything I can think of and can't quite get it to work. Maybe I need a plexiglass or mirror? Looking for effect similar to pet ghost in a bottle. 1/2 hat mounted on wall to project face on wall...

    Finished Leer V3 Ghost. SOLD I made this Leer V3 Ghost this past Halloween. (Another big thanks to Here'sJohnny for his inspiration and original design). Unfortunately another down sizing forces me to find it a new haunt. It's powered by a 12V vent motor wired to a wall wart. Will stand on...
