Regular 18$ and now for 9.97$. I just bought one two weeks ago for 18$. Now on sale. I bought two more since the first one was actually for a plant. I just picked up the submersible pump from HF today, so maybe one day I can do a rum drinking pirate with this. It's a completely sealed planter so it can hold water. I picture a costco skelly in the barrel tilting a bottle up. You guys know about the costco prices ending in .97cents right?

Danski, yeah these planters are great for a lot of props. I have bought them locally at Lowes and at Wal-Mart as well. They usually cost about $18.00. One thing I used them for was to make pirate barrels for my pirate ship using two of them put together. I also made a rum barrel for my run drinking pirate. There is a tutorial on how to make the barrels on my haunted forest website.

Thanks for that. I could definitely see two of these stacked on top of each other to make a full barrel. Will take a look at your how to. Thanks again.

I'm also considering a rum drinking pirate. I picture something along these lines. I can't help but send my wife back for two more so I can make a simple barrel that I can store stuff in while using it as a barrel and it's easy to pack up and put away.

Considering renewing my costco membership for the skellies and barrels now. I saw the same planter at lowes for $15, and have it on the list for a rum drinking pirate. Might have to reconsider costco.

Yah there pretty beefy little planters. If any thing I always still have some nice planters. That's a deal right there. Repurposed for the intended use later.

On a side note, danski, do you know if costco still carries the led mood lights? They came with a six light set up, and at my local store, they were in an aisle near the electronics. Think they were about $50 bucks. You could cycle through modes to determine how fast the color fade would cycle, pause on a color you want to hold steady, and had a function for sound activated flicker. I'm not sure on part number, but can grab a pic if it will help of the set I currently have.

image.jpg I bought my set like 4 years ago, but saw they still had them around this time last year. The pic I'll grab will be of the set I have so no package. I will grab a shot and edit this post with the pic.

Edit: I can't seem to locate the controller portion, but these are the light strips.

Edit#2: found power supply and controller. Brand name is "cyron"

The power brick is a 12v DC transformer, so it can be jumped and hooked to any 12 item, controller, or in a vehicle (which was my original use, but decided against it).

Ok. Those look cool. It's a led light bar looking light. An item number would have been great to have but I can see if I can find anything out. If you saw them last year there's a good chance we can find out about these. I am surprised I never noticed them. I bought the sylvania led strips with remote. They weren't sound active though.

Ok. Were all those in one pack? How many were in each one? That may help also. Thanks

Oops got it. 6 pack. I will see what I can find out.

Picked up my half barrel planters at Lowes for $15 each. May have to tag along with the wife to Costco on her next bulk buy shopping trip
