Faux Fire Basket

I know Beelce’s tutorial on how to build a Faux Fire Basket has been featured on a ton of home haunting how-to sites, but it really is one of the best tutorials for this effect that I’ve run across so it would be hard not to feature it on HauntersList. It’s a very simple effect to create and will set the right mood for any scene that requires flames. If you’re going to be using the wicker basket make sure that you’re extra careful with the power cords as you don’t want to turn this faux fire into a real fire.



Items needed to create this include:

  • Wicker basket
  • Electrical wire
  • Assorted holiday light strings (for embers)
  • LED spotlights for flames
  • Silk like fabric
  • 12″ high velocity 3 speed fan
  • 3M High performance 2mil decal material (or equivalent heavy duty tape)
