Was not really in the festive mood this year, but after visiting several sites like Pumpkinrot, and this site, which I watched (Old Man Bakke - On how to build a cauldron - You are genius by the way! I was pumped and ready to go. With only 6 weeks out, I was able to pull by yard haunt off which was just completed tonight. I live in Illinois and we are surrounded by corn fields so I went with the corn field look since the stalks were free - A good friend of ours let us take as many as we needed. I hope this can inspire someone as much as I was this year by many web sites and members on this site. Happy Halloween everyone!

In love with your cauldron. What are you using for lighting in the cauldron? This year I used green rope lighting from Home Depot but I've found it isn't as bright as I'd like it to be

I added some pics for you as I am a visual person. The cauldon is big enough to hold both the fog machine and a light. I saw another gentlemen on You Tube take a spot light and position it upside down, but I wanted mine brighter.....but not to bright. I positioned mine up, but the difference is that I bought plexi glass at Lowes ($9.00) and cut it to fit the top and left the frosted plastic on both sides. They put it on from the manufacturer to safeguard from scatches. The plastic gives it a frosted look so the light is not shining straight up. I also cut holes in it to let the fog slowly come out to give it that boiling effect. It's bright, but not to bright and casts a great shadow effect on the witches. Hope this helps! Just an FYI - At first, I tried 2 - 100 light strand Christmas tree lights and mine were not bright enough either. Take Care.
