    Halloween? PVC CANDLES: TIPS & TRICKS - BY HI-REZ DESIGNSThere are TONS of tutorials out there on the web on how to make PVC candles, so I don't need to start a tutorial from scratch. This is more of "Tips-And-Tricks" list of the things I personally do to make my PVC candles.1. CUTTING PVC: When you get your big stick of PVC pipe, whatever the size, try not to always make 90 degree straight cuts. Candles do not burn level all the time. Cut some angles at the top like

Lifesize Body Forms Its fairly cheap, less than $20 for a sturdy, water resistant and reusable form. Outside friendly. Just add your favorite costume! Use PVC frames and simply add empty 2 liter bottles for leg filler. Incidentally, the necks of the bottles fit 1/2" PVC pipe perfectly. Just use a 7/8" bit to drill a hole in the bottom of the bottle.

Mandy... even if you didn't do the whole thing, a couple of these would be super fun. @amanda

PVC Pipe makes great bars. You can make a 1" x 2" wood frame sized to your window openings and insert the PVC pipe sections into the holes in the frame. I made cages using PVC for bars. Same concept.Eric

Wow! I wish I had the time and money to do this. Stand up figures for 150 bucks at Spirit Halloween is just crazy!

    It wouldn't be hard to make them yourself. Use the cheap Halloween masks for the front of the face and paper mâché over it. Then you could buy PCV pipe and make these yourself. Time consuming.....but it would be a fun project for you and your kids to do together. Quality Time!!!!

    Do you you think it might be because they have motors in them? Probably cheaper without them...

  • Meagan Carter

    The ones you buy at Halloween City or others like it don't have motors, they're little boxes that make noise when you walk by it which you can buy there or WalMart for $15. Still cheaper to make your own.

    Buy PVC & fittings at your local Lowes or Home Depot. I use these motors for my moving Halloween props: http://www.kindys.com/produ...

    We started doing PVC stand up figures 3 years ago. We are up to about 20. We add a few a year that way it isn't a big cost. I don't do the head and hands like the one in this one. I buy masks when they go on sale and save old throw out clothes through the year. I but the styrofoam "wig heads" for a couple bucks and put the old clothes and the mask on the head. I think the link I used to learn how to make them is in my Halloween pins.
