Site for a great home haunt book

Wednesday, July 7, 2010


I guess this weekend was the weekend for making prop candles. If my raving about the book How to Haunt your House wasn't enough to get you to go buy it, maybe this project will convince you. (That's right folks, this is a project from Book 1. In fact, the Mitchell's even have a video tutorial here.) These are so simple to make that I have about 50 or so more planned. For Under $10 I purchased enough PVC pipe and hot glue to make many many candles. I got the battery operated tea lights from
Wal-mart last year when they were on sale after Christmas and I am using left over styrofoam from other projects for the insert. I think this one came out nicely. So far I've made 2 of them, I plan on making more this week if I am not exhausted from work. If I can do this and make them look good anyone can, so watch the tutorial and go make you some prop candles.


  1. That is a very cool prop - they have definately inspired a lot of haunters. Please post pictures! Love to see what other people create.

    I am also looking forward to the second book. The Mitchells are super talented and very generous to share their vast knowledge with the rest of us!


  2. LOVE the blog Bill! I must begin candle making now!

  3. You did a super job! The great thing is how a lot of them look in the haunt setting. Put some on tables, on the floors, outside. You'll wish you had more once you see how they look at night.
