Homemade Halloween





Introduction: Homemade Halloween

This is my graveyard I made from old things I had lying around the house and stuff I would normally have thrown out in the garbage. The only things that were store bought are the tombstones and some of the skulls used in the zombies.

The frames for the zombies were made from 1/2 inch pvc pipe, old garden hose, metal clothes hangers and some other things. They were covered with old newspaper (paper mache) and then with tissue to give a rotten flesh look. The eyes were made by putting hot glue in a 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon and waiting until they hardened.

Put it all together and you get a fun little scene for halloween.

    Amazing! Just what I've been looking for

    Thanks for this awesome instructable. Bit to close for this years Halloween but I'll be putting some of these ideas to use next year. Cheers

    My grandson just informed me he wants zombies this year and one that moves. This will give me a great start since i have never made animatronics before. We'.ll see if I can do it.

    Very nice i used caulk paper mache made 6 ground breakers start to finish in one day

    Nice work, Bone Daddy!

    Quick question... how does the tissue stay on? Doesn't it get damp and start to peel?
    Great job by the way! Thanks for sharing!

    It does get damp, but the paste holds it on. It won't peel. It does feel slimy though and is a bit see through until it dries.

    they looks alive...thats really cool...

    How did you get that great lighting effect though? Thanks.

    The lights are just orange halloween string lights and I have a fog machine running through a chiller that keeps the fog right above the lights...makes them look smoky.
