I love Halloween!

I love Halloween. I love decorating for it, dressing up, passing out candy, going to parties, and especially making my yard extra creepy and scary to frighten all the little neighborhood kids! What other time of year can you really go nuts decorating? Not many that I know of, unless you're crazy about Christmas, which I am not. My goal is to have the most terrifying and spooky yard in town, and to create a memorable Halloween for all the local kids! A mini fog maker is easy to make and will create that extra ambiance or visual spook you're looking to add to any Halloween display. You can also apply this same creation for any party in need of extra interest or visual appeal.

Easy mini fog maker

Set your items up

  1. For every container you use, add 3 parts water, and 1 part glycerin
  2. I like to use oil/scent tea light burners, but these are often very small, so an old metal coffee can is also a good option. Add your containers to other Halloween displays for a truly frightful decoration. These look great in a witches cauldron, behind artificial headstones, inside pumpkins, and make great displays concealed in haunted table top center pieces.
  3. Once your container is set up, light a tea light under it. It takes about 15 minutes for it to really get going, but once it does you will have a very easy and unique mini fog maker!
  4. Ta-da!

Another option using dry ice! Super cool.
