Faux Wrought Iron Fence...

Ok, so we all know there are about 1,000 tutorials on the web about how to build a fence for a graveyard.  Most of them use the typical 1 x 2″ furring strips at the top and bottom with PVC creating the bars of the fence.  Well, Scott A. Stoll has definitely taken it up a notch, and if I was going to pick a tutorial to follow to make my own cemetery fence, I would choose his method.  His tutorial on how to build his fencing is incredibly detailed, and the resulting product is well worth the time spent because it is remarkably realistic looking.  This could pass for a real fence.  The finials and curved iron is also incredibly easy to implement and adds so much to this fence.  The best part is that you won’t have to worry about running out of finials, or heating up the PVC to accomplish this because it’s done using craft foam!  If you are thinking of making some cemetery fence, you would be well served to check out this tutorial, it is the real deal.   Items used to create fencing include: 1×2″ lumber 1/2″ PVC Craft Foam Drywall screws Hot...

Animated Ouija Board

Ok, I’ve seen a couple of animated Ouija boards on the net, but DaveintheGrave from the HalloweenForum has the most detailed tutorial on how to make this prop I’ve ever seen.  It’s broken down into two parts, with Part 1 focusing on how to prep the box that will house the guts of the Ouija board prop, while Part 2 details the mechanics of the prop.  DaveintheGrave utilizes a small vent motor for this prop, and breaks down the motor instructions into two additional tutorials for further clarity (Motor Part1, Motor Part2).     There is a link to the video of this prop in action at the beginning of Part 1 of the tutorial, and as you will see, this prop is worth the time spent making it, it looks...

Foam Boarded Windows

Rchassel over at HalloweenForum.com has a good tutorial on how to use styrofoam boards to board-up your windows.  They’re inexpensive, look great and are lightweight enough that they can be held in place over your windows using very thin straps!     Items used to create this effect include: 1” thick extruded polystyrene foam insulatio Gorilla Glue Straps to anchor the board system into your windows Paint Behr Faux...

Cauldron Creep Tutorial...

The Devil’s Workshop blog has posted an awesome tutorial on how to build what is possibly one of the best looking Cauldron Creeps I’ve ever seen.  Seriously, I wouldn’t have a problem paying them to make this for me because it deserves to be in every haunter’s yard.  This tutorial was for the original Cauldron Creep, constructed in 2009.  The videos are spectacular.     Items needed to create this prop include: 20 ft 1/2″ PVC 8 1/2″ PVC “T”s 4 1/2″ PVC 90° 1 5rpm motor (for head action) 1 Monsterguts Wiper motor 2 ultrabright LEDs Red and Black electrical wire small gauge 2 monsterguts eyball blanks 1 foam skull 1 large “bag of Bones” from biglots Creepy Cloth 1 can Greatstuff 1 can Black spray paint 1″ drywall screws 5′ 2×4 plumbers tape ATX power supply...

Tim’s Haunted Bookshelf...

      This is a project that I spent a lot of time working on and when you get it right can be a superb effect for your haunt.  I never seemed to get mine working as smoothly as Timothy Ewing seems to have, but with his tutorial you should be able to do better than me.  You’ll need a round steel shaft the length of your books, some aluminum stock, some screw eyes, rubberbands, a small motor (I used a wiper motor), and of course books!     I’m still hatching a plan to do this effect with mini-linear actuators, but until then, go with Tim’s Haunted Bookshelves blueprint.  ...

Hot Burning Coals Prop...

Loach160 over at HalloweenForum.com has posted a great tutorial on how to make hot burning coals without the heat.  This effect looks great with a witches cauldron above it and is super simple to create (I actually think I might be able to do this one).       Items used to create this effect include: 1 string of 50 orange LED Christmas lights 1 can expanding spray foam 1 12 inch square piece of wood or plastic 1 can black spray paint masking tape assorted plastic bottle tops and/or bottoms box cutter or...

Dr Kreepy’s FCG...

For the longest time I struggled with how to build a simple Flying Crank Ghost.  The guide at Phantasmechanics.com (R.I.P.) seemed ridiculously complicated to my simple mind.  Then I found Dr. Kreepy’s YouTube videos and everything clicked.  My FCG might have even flown had the party I was building it for not been cancelled, but that’s another story.    ...
