Tricks and Treats VI


Not sure whether or not you want to make a paper pumpkin or witch decoration this year? Get the best of both worlds by making a combination of both using these handy instructions.

Facebook has a ton of great decorating ideas. Home Haunters shared some great advice on making “Bloody Handprint Window Clings,” World Of Horrors has some labels and origami skull, Handmade Halloween has a great lighting idea and Andrew’s Black Books has amazing tutorials and scare ideas. Considering what he’s giving away for free to promote his book, imagine how incredibly the stuff you have to pay for is!

Babble also has a wonderful selection of scary prop ideas for haunted houses and yard haunts. Those planning on using LEDs in their props absolutely have to bookmark the guide “How to Buy LEDs on eBay.”

Stacy Nelson’s 10 On-Set Secrets: Halloween has loads and loads of decorating advice and project ideas. The previews available on Amazon and Google Books make this very clear.

Have you ever wanted to recreate the Jack O’Lantern seen in the opening credits of John Carpenter’s Halloween for your front steps? has just the pumpkin carving stencil you need.

Decorating your computer for Halloween is something far too many people overlook when planning for the big day. Thankfully Shallow Valley Funeral Home has the perfect free desktop for you!

Anyone who has read comic books or horror magazines from the 1970’s will remember the garish ads for the “The Monster Fan Club” (aka “The Horror Fan Club”). Jason “Scar Stuff” Willis is offering an almost complete collection of scans from the kit and I highly recommend checking it out.

Speaking of 70’s horror, I just found a website chronicling the filming of Snowbeast. In addition to continuing my tradition of sharing behind-the-scenes stories of horror movies in these articles, it also gives me an excuse to link to Snowbeast Records’ free Halloween compilations. Those preferring a more traditional selection of Halloween music should enjoy Amazon’s free download of the soundtrack to Unpleasantville.
