  1. Lighting: candle help and ideas

    Halloween Props
    I recently had a conversation with a friend that works at a custom lighting company. Some of her lamps have plastic candles. She has been throwing away the extra ones. She just gave me my first batch of the leftover candles. They already have factory candle wax drips on them. They also come with...

  4. Fall/Halloween Candle and Fragrance thread 2018

    General Halloween
    I thought I'd start a thread about new or favorite Halloween or fall candles/Wax melts/other scented items. I was just using a Yankee Candle Apple Cider wax melt and thinking of what scents I'll have going again this fall!

  6. Static: Bottles, bottles everywhere...And no rum!

    Halloween Props
    Just thought I would post a quick pic of a two fold project I have been working on. Living on the face of the sun does not make good for any prop that is made of wax, especially candles. So what to do when everything melts in a heartbeat, even at Halloween! We are having a party in October...
  7. Static: Witch Candles

    Halloween Props
    A bit of a variation on the witch lights/witch jars that everyone makes. I decided to make these weird kinda organic looking stakes that would each hold an LED candle to add to our witch scene. I rewired some led votives to run off a 5v 400ma power source and replaced the innards of the candles...

    For Sale/Trade By Individuals
    SOLD I have six real wax, "blood drip" flameless battery operated taper candles that were sold by Grandin Road a few years ago. I only used them the first year I bought them.

  10. Atmosphere Effects: Preserving pumpkins

    Halloween Props
    I don't normally purchase ripe pumpkins until a few days before the Big Event. But this year I spotted a pair of real beauties and had to snap them up before somebody else did. I've got them in a cool place, dark, on cardboard, coated with a layer of Turtle Wax. Hey, it works with automotive...
  11. SFANTHOR! House of Wax Classic Monster Museum in Austin, TX

    General Halloween
    I just came back from Austin, TX (Round Rock, actually) to attend my nephew's wedding. While that was fun, the highlight of my trip was going to SFANTHOR! Monster wax museum and gift shop. The wax museum literally opened less than a month ago - a spill over from the owner's Museum of the Weird...
  12. 2015 Halloween Fragrance Discussion Thread

    General Halloween
    Well guys its just about the half way mark until we hit the Halloween season! :D So what are our hopes for this year's offerings from your favorite vendors? I'm hoping to see all of Yankee Candles pumpkin offerings again. And I'd love it if someone could put out a nice licorice scent. So far...
  13. Giant Candles with realistic wax drips

    Halloween Props
    Hello all, I have exhausted all attempts, without going to forums, so now I have scoured many forums for this info, and I think there are others that have had this question at some point; I just haven’t seen it brought up. By utilizing cement pillar forms, I am building Giant Candles, ranging...
  14. Static: Fake Cheap Candles... I can't stop making them!!

    Halloween Props
    Because I'm too big of a chicken to use Great Stuff anymore (I was told it's flammable) and I am too lazy to cut PVC pipe, I went looking for an easier way to create cheap fake candles... I found Dave Lowe's blog post on using cardboard tubes (ie toilet paper and paper towel rolls)... and NOW...
