Twenty Dollar Halloween Prop

at 5:29 am. Filed under Crazy Hacks, Electronic Hacks


How may of us could build this prop for $20.00? I have lots of parts laying around from old projects, but one trip to Home Depot and my budget would be blown…

“This is “Wilfred”, my contest entry. He is a full sized animatronic greeter for my haunt. He is made entirely from ordinary objects anyone can obtain, and is made for just under $20!! What did Prop builders use before PVC was invented? Scrap wood, of course! The armature for this prop is made entirely of wood. Don’t make fun of my wood working skills, as they are non existant. This pic shows how the fan is mounted. Purple coat on, and black burlap for a shaw. I had an old PVC pipe segment left over from Cemetery fence, so I gave him a cane. I would like to paint it, but I am at the limit with the cost, so it’ll have to just stay white. ”
