Spooky Front Yard

By: Danie

Hello Ghouls and Goblins!

In the spirit of Halloween we thought we would help make your yard a little bit more spooky. Decorating was a special event this year because it was our first year in our new home! To be entirely honest I am not sure if it was the excitement of actually having a yard to decorate or kids to scare that made my sweet boyfriend come up with this awesome idea.

We had purchased a fog machine and decided that plain ol' fog just was not going to do...we needed that creepin' in the grass, slowly crawling onto the walk way fog- you know "that fog" that is in every scary movie. If you are a Halloween enthusiast here is how you can make your yard a little spookier!

Fog Machine/Fog Liquid
Cheap Styro Cooler
PVC Pipe
Dry Ice

1. Your PVC pipe will go through the cooler so you will have to cut holes on both sides (try to cut so that the pipe just passes through). PVC pipe needs to be cut so it extends at least three inches from both sides of the cooler.

2. Add dry ice into your cooler, wait 5-10 minutes.

3. Your fog machine will line up with the back of the PVC pipe so when the fog goes through the pipe it is cooled and will lay in the grass, giving a more spooky effect.

4. This might be the hardest part, finding somewhere to camouflage your fog machine and cooling apparatus. We had some brown felt laying around so we laid that over our contraption.

Voila, this is how you create low lying fog in your your yard!
