Picture of Easy Halloween Casket Fog Machine Cover
I have had a fog machine in my Halloween decor for a couple years now and each year I try to find ways to hide it and protect it from the weather. 
This year I came up with this casket. 
The cost is cheap.  I used materials I already had on hand. but if you dont have wood on hand your lumber store will have a scrap section!!
This instructable is for a smaller fog machine, however you can make it bigger if needed.  but keep in mind your fog machine needs room to breath! 
Do not allow the machine to touch any part of the wood so measure for enough space. 
My fog machine is 9" x 5" x 5" if yours is the same continue on with these instructions. if it's bigger add as many inches to each measurement as your machine is bigger in inches than this one.
This casket can also be made for decoration only.  I will note which steps to skip if you are making it for decor only.

Materials:

plywood I used 1/8 inch thick
furring strips about 5 1/2 feet total
wood glue
staples
pencil
black spray paint
black hose that will fit over the end of the part the fog comes out of ( you can purchase an attachment for you specific machine I used a store bought set that splits in 3 and has headstones on the end of the hoses where the fog comes out)
optional: gray paint, caulk and thompson's water seal

Tools:

circular saw
jig saw
yard stick
tape measure
staple gun
drill and 1" hole cutter

Step 1: Measurements for drawing the casket

Picture of Measurements for drawing the casket
On the plywood start at the corner measure 16" in from the end.  Make marks at 4", 8", 12" and 16".

Measure 24" down the side and measure and mark 4,8,12, and 16 inches as shown in picture.
