How To Bend PVC Pipe

This tutorial is considerably more utilitarian than most that appear on HauntersList, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less important.  The fact is, at some point, most home haunters are going to have to bend up some PVC and there’s a right way to do it and a not so right way...

Mystic Lord Horns

A good pair of horns is hard to find.  Actually, I hardly ever just “find” horns laying around so it’s pretty much up to me to buy a pair, or make a pair.  If you’ve ever seen the horns that you can buy at the store then you probably already understand that this is not...

Corpsing A Pumpkin

You’ve corpsed a skeleton so why haven’t you corpsed a pumpkin?  Seriously.  Foam pumpkins look great when they’re carved up, but they look even better after a quick corpsification, just ask kloey74 who posted the My Creepy Pumpkin Tutorial over at The HalloweenForum.  The...

Raven Manor’s ...

The moving Grave Slab prop that the Hallowed Haunting Grounds built in 1994 has served as inspiration for many home haunters since its creation. It’s a great idea that was well executed and tutorialized for all to benefit from.  Raven Manor put together a tutorial on their build of this...

How To Make A Pneuma...

If you’ve never built a pneumatic prop you’re a member of a very exclusive club that includes yours truly. And to paraphrase Groucho Marx, you probably don’t want to be a member of any club that would have me as a member. With that in mind, Chris from MonstarCraft...

Realistic Compound F...

If you would have ever told me that I could make three straws look like a bone I would have been skeptical to say the least, but the instructable that chany1964 created on how to Make a Realistic Compound Fracture does just that!  If you’ve got even a tiny bit of skill with makeup...

Grave Stone Shaker

If the grave stone’s a rocking, don’t bother knocking?  Well, I’m not sure that really works, and to be honest, any grave stone that’s rocking back and forth is definitely going to pique my interest, much like the one that Onsteadvideos created.  This prop consists of...

How To Make Zombies ...

As the title indicates, this instructable will help you solve the age old question of How To Make Zombies Out of Junk.  Well, maybe not junk, but materials that you may already have laying around your house (or in your garbage can).  I have to hand it to garnoft, this one of the most creative...

Kicking Legs Prop

There are a ton of Kicking Legs Prop tutorials on the internet, but the one that the Hollywood Haunter put together stands head and shoulders above the rest.  To be honest, anyone that takes the time to create proper looking butt cheeks for their Kicking Legs prop wins every time as far as...

Casting Pirate Doubl...

If your planning on a pirate theme for any section of your haunt you’ll probably have the need for some pirate booty.  And since I’m talking about treasure here, the tutorial that IMU posted over at the HalloweenForum about Casting your own Pirate Doubloons is the perfect...

Weather Resistant Tr...

I’m not sure how to categorize this prop, but suffice to say it’s an incredible and ultimately necessary prop.  Everyone that’s had any use for exterior video projection has encountered the problem of not only hiding the projector but protecting it from the elements.  The...

Devil’s Rust

Sometimes in Halloween prop building you need to accelerate the aging process a little bit and other times you need to accelerate the process a whole lot.  Devil’s Rust will help you when you need to turn the clock forward several decades to give your props a grimy, rusty appearance....

Skeleton Hands

A pair of realistic looking skeleton hands will always come in handy when prop building.  The problem is, they’re usually accompanied by the price tag of a bucky skeleton.  So if I told you that you could make a pair of skeleton hands yourself shaped in the position of your choosing for...

Flicker Light

If you want to add some atmosphere to your haunt a few flicker light circuits might just be the answer you’re looking for, and they’re really easy to make. Now, the first rule of working with electricity is always be safe, so if you don’t feel comfortable slicing and...

Ghoul In Wall

A creepy looking wall breaker is a good thing to have in your prop arsenal, and Deanna’s November, 2009 entry in the Mad Lab’s prop building contest, Ghoul in Wall is really good. The build of this prop starts out with a 1/2″ styrofoam base that is the size of your desired...

The Pumpkin King

“TK421, Why aren’t you at your post?” “Because I’m in the garage building the Pumpkin King”   Oh what a different film that would have been, although it probably wouldn’t have changed the overall outcome any.  I’m pretty sure the Empire...

All Wrapped Up

I’ve wanted to post a tutorial for a full-sized mummy for a while and haven’t been able to find one that I thought turned out a really good looking classic mummy.  It’s ironic that when I did find one it came from the Crafty Mommy and Me website, which is probably not where...

SFX – Deep Sca...

Scars are a easy way to change someone’s appearance without investing a ton of time and effort, and this tutorial from beautysbadhabit shows just how easy it can be.  The main ingredient is rigid collodion, which wrinkles the skin as it dries.          ...
