Is there any better way to set a spooky scene than by using a totally awesome fog machine? Create the eerie fog of your dreams with one of our fog machines from Spirit Halloween! Brew some magic of your own when you have the fog coming out of a large witch's cauldron, or set the scene for any zombie-filled graveyard. Make the scene all the more realistic when you get one of our low-lying fog machines, which are easier to keep out of sight and make the foggy illusion even more convincing. Is that a fog machine, or are the ghosts of the forgotten truly rising from their graves? Only you will know for sure!
What is it about Halloween that transforms ordinary people into seekers of anything dark and unknown?  Cemeteries by night, horror films by day and one of the most popular and oldest Halloween traditions to date - the haunted house!    A haunted house is defined as a building that is the center for supernatural occurrences or paranormal phenomena.  To create these chilling and disturbing effects when designing your own haunted house, you’ll need some amazing animated special effect props that are sure to terrify.  Here at Halloween Express, you’ll find the decorations and props needed that will give your haunted house the illusion that actors, animatronics, sound, lighting and other special effects bring to today’s haunted houses that make them such nightmarish venues.  A good haunted house should terrify, shock and disorient its patrons and then have them laughing at their own fears upon exiting. 

Frankenstein saw inspiration in the most grotesque of scavenging—here, we took a note from his book and constructed a bare-bones table decoration. The table legs are legs indeed—store-bought faux bones. To make it, trim the thigh bones: Use saw to cut the legs to 1 inch less than the desired table height (to account for tabletop). Next, stabilize the knees: Take each leg apart at the knee; unscrew the hardware, and remove the kneecap. Connect shin bone to thighbone with one double-threaded screw (3/16-by-3 inches). Lastly, stabilize the ankles: Position one foot so it rests flat on the floor, and generously squeeze epoxy into the hinge that makes the ankle flex. Repeat with the remaining legs. Let it dry and cure overnight at least before moving onto the next step. Attach the legs to the table: Decide where you want the legs, and drill pilot holes through tabletop. Place each leg underneath the pilot hole, then screw to attach. Put putty over the screws, and let it dry. Sand until smooth. Paint the tabletop a skeletal white.

The iconic striped socks in this decoration evoke memories of watching The Wizard of Oz with a bowlful of popcorn. Keep the memory of Dorothy and her band of misfit heroes alive with this colorful Halloween door hanger. To create a realistic look, you can stuff each sock with old newspaper, other socks or old T-shirts. Choose two different colors of tulle to create contrast and visual interest. Black and yellow works well, as does black and orange, or white and orange – dark colors provide greater contrast against the striped socks. Use a hot glue gun to hold each piece together.

Sometimes, there's safety in numbers. But this Halloween, there's fear—and fabulousness—in a flock. To summon a swarm of nocturnal nomads, use our downloadable template to cut out your own—stick on removable adhesive dots, bend the wings for extra eeriness, and let 'em loose. To spook-ify your nearby windows, mirrors, or your fridge, use vinyl clings instead of paper cutouts.

Using black paper or fabric, bats can be traced and cut out to decorate your front door. They can be put on the front door via tape or any other method that you like. A bat template can be found for free on a lot of different websites. Spiders can be created with Styrofoam balls. These are spray painted black. Black pipe cleaners are used as legs, and voila! These Halloween door decorations have a life of their own, and boy do they look the part. For something a little more cartoony, a different color can be used – which also creates an intense look depending on the colors used.

These craft tricks aren't too spooky—most are tame enough for younger ghouls and goblins who would enjoy them throughout a Halloween event. From floral elements to furniture that you can temporarily modify, there are many how-tos to get you in the spooky spirit. Using crafty essentials like hot glue and shears, you can create essentials like cobwebs and other visual effects for tabletops, bookcases, lighting fixtures, and even staircases, which can be transformed into a trick-of-the-eye rodent landscape with a pair of scissors and craft paper in all the right places. If you want to up the scream factor, try making a a modified mirror, which can become hauntingly eerie with just a few additions. While twinkling candlelight casting mysterious shadows is a mainstay on front porches for trick or treaters, you can bring these elements inside too with handmade lanterns that can be made a few days in advance. 
Pumpkins with scary lit up faces are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s lips this Halloween. To make sure this front porch decoration is visible from the street, paint some of the lighted pumpkins white and the rest black or leave orange. Decorate an old planter or use a neutral colored one that doesn’t distract from your handiwork. Use a sturdy dowel that can carry the weight of five small to medium-sized pumpkins. Alternate pumpkin colors when placing. Hide that electrical cord as best you can so people see your decorating savvy rather than a thick orange or black trip hazard.

A large wooden plank is usually an obstacle. However, not this Halloween. A DIY Halloween door decoration this is not. This is a porch decoration. Spray paint and stencils is one way to create this spooky welcome sign. Or the letters can be purchased from a woodworking shop or other area and simply nailed on in the right order. These Halloween house decorations are quite a pop from the traditional ones found in stores, and can be painted in colors to reflect the personality of the family. Who wouldn’t want that?
