Monsterlist of Halloween Projects

About    Awards    Links    Portable    Suggest a site

The Monsterlist of Halloween Projects is the most complete collection of links to pages with do-it-yourself projects on them that I know of. These are not your little kids Halloween crafts, every scary devious seriously spooky prop and project designed for truly scaring people is listed here. Most importantly, the list is checked for accuracy. This is not an all-inclusive list of everything Halloween, the Monsterlist of Halloween Projects has no popup ads or sponsors, it is a volunteer site and will stay that way. It is not an index of professionals pushing their wares or a advertising link for haunted houses. It is simply a gathering place of projects and ideas that people who build their own Halloween props can use. Usually I have linked to the project page itself however I recommend browsing from there to the owners main Halloween page, there is usually plenty of interesting Halloween information. 

Movie
A 4 minute long "music video" showing many of these props in action is available for downloading. Click here for detailed information.
