Introduction: Scary Halloween Ooga Pumpkin

Hey, This isn't a very complex hack but it gets the job done for the season. Last year I carved a pumpkin and put an Ooga horn in it then ran the wires inside the house to a 12 volt apc battery. The results are pretty effective as you can see in the video Im thinking about doing it again this year with a police siren in one pumpkin, ooga in another, and a PA speaker in the 3rd. Also Strobe lights can be fun to add too!

Step 1:

What you need:

1 Ooga horn ($9.00 Harbor Freight)
A length of two conductor wire
1 Pumpkin (~$5.00 Walmart)
1 12V power source (Battery or Adapter with high amp rating)
Some Trick or Treater's

Step 2:

This is really easy so I will explain it step by step.

1:
Acquire a fairly large pumpkin.
Make sure that your pumpkin is carved but not in a way your victims can see your horn.

2:
Connect a long wire to the Positive and Negative Terminals of the Ooga horn.
Cut a small hole in an inconspicuous part of the pumpkin.
Push the wire through the pumpkin from the inside.
Place your horn inside your pumpkin.

3:
Pull your wire to a hiding place where you can see the targeted area and your victims cannot see you

4:
Have a 12 Volt power source ready as this will power the ooga horn (I use a 12V APC battery)

5:
Firmly connect the Positive lead from the horn to the Positive terminal on the battery.

6:
When ready to frieghten people simply touch the Negative Lead from the Horn to the Negative Terminal on the battery.

Thats it!

my dad has an old creepy car with an ooga horn in it, so one year, my mom stuffed up some old pants and bots with cotton and had them sticking out from under the car hood. my dad then made the horn so it could be remote controlled from in our house. he scared a lot of people that year
