Picture of Fire House Halloween Display

If you are not good at making props for Halloween, try decorating with light.  Here is a simple and relatively inexpensive way to make your house look hot for the holiday.

Step 1: Lights- Martin Mania DC2

Picture of Lights- Martin Mania DC2

After researching many fire lighting effects, the Martin Mania DC2 looked the most realistic.  I purchase two of them used on eBay for $100 each.  It's a testament to how well these lights were designed and built because I've never experienced a problem with any Martin lighting products over the years.  The house's light colored siding was ideal for the projection.  They were set off to the side and one was aimed to the left front and the other towards the right front of the house.

This seems more of an advertisement than an instructable

I agree. Not too detailed at all so we need to put this together ourselves.

Thats what I was thinking too.
