Witch Jars, Corpses, and A Sentinel

Made a couple more Witch Jars and had some fun with them in the workshop.






I'll probably make a bunch more to hang from the branches of the tree on Halloween night.
Here's the original post.

Very nice. No wonder your props turn out so creepy, even your workshop looks kind of creepy. lol
I love the idea of the witch jars swaying in the breeze.

Those are really cool and very original. Are you at all concerned about using real fire? Especially with all the nice dry leaves under the tree.

Thanks.
Nah, I have Bean and my brother watching over the haunt for candles burning down or things getting knocked over. So far no accidents are fires. Though I'm always joking about the tree catching fire so I keep a fire extinguisher right inside the front door, just in case.

Those look great. As you know I've used jars in my displays. I've always wished they had a more weathered look. Now I know what to do to get it.

Sam, the leaves would really have to be resting in the flame to catch. I've used real fire in my displays for years and never had a problem. The leaves also tend to be damper than you'd think in the Fall.

This year I'm having even more fire.
