For many of us, summer is a time for projects — some dreary, some fun. Given the choice between cleaning out the U-trap from the kids' bathroom sink or creating a scary new prop for Halloween, this blogger is unequivocally on the side of the latter.
This brings us to a nifty DIY project from Michael Hehir of Rochester, Michigan. Using AtmosFX's Eerie Eyes digital decoration and some pink insulation foam, Michael has created an engaging gravestone prop that will look fantastic in his yard this upcoming Halloween.
Michael tells us that it took him only two hours to put together his prop. As you can see in the video, he's able to pack a lot of "extras" into it — including LED lights, a small fog machine, and a media player which runs the Eerie Eyes digital decoration. In his five-minute video, Michael opens up the back so you can see how he fit everything in.
Michael also tells us that he did use some waterproofing on the gravestone, though he still plans to bring it inside at the end of the night. Unexpected weather (not to mention mischievous late-night gremlins) could easily threaten the enclosed iPad.
Michael tells us he has been creating Halloween props at his home for about two years now. He's even created his own Facebook page, called Mr. Kreepy’s Halloween Kreationz, where he details a lot of his work. Like the many Halloween-themed Facebook User's Groups, Michael's page is a great place to get inspired with fellow creative fans as we gear up for the upcoming Halloween season!
Great work Michael – you've given us a fun DIY project!
