Introduction: Halloween Inspiration

About: I have had a few careers so far, soldier, school teacher, arborist, millwright. I love change and I love learning.

I searched the net for ideas to make halloween more fun. Three links that really stood out to me are posted below.

Thanks for the creative people who came up with this stuff and took the time to put it onto the net.

head on a table
the site explains everything better than I could. I used 1 leg instead of three, I built a collapsing crate to hide the head in. It was amazing how perfect the illusion was. Adults and kids alike kept asking how it was possible.

rc ghost
This was great too. I used my sons rc car and bolted a plate with a steel rod welded to it. I lucked out finding the sheer fabric that had kind of a purple shimmer to it. two led's for eyes. I'll need a second battery for next year. The wind really wreaked havoc with it as well. I had to clamp 2 vise grips to the plate as weight. I ran it up and down the street to attract people to our house.

[ flaming pumpkins]
I have done this for the last three years now. What a visual effect. Keep back so kids can't get too close! Just soak toilet paper rolls in kerosene overnight, drop into a pumpkin and light. flames burn for about half an hour. Pumpkin looks pretty trashed after the second roll.
