Flame Box

About the Flame Boxes:

This project was not constructed for Halloween use, but would certainly be a creepy prop to be used for a home-haunt. I designed he following boxes to simulate a beach fire for a Beach Boys concert that my employer hosted in 1995. The visual effects from the fire are hard to capture in still-photographs, but rest assured that they look real in the darkness. As a matter of fact, I was told that someone tried to throw water on one at the concert because they thought it was a real fire!

Note: The flame boxes in this project were constructed to be “heavy duty” versions. They were designed to be placed outside atop a sand pile and to be run for many hours. If you are not planning on using your flame box for long periods, you may want to simplify the construction in order to keep the cost down. It may not be necessary for the average person to construct the heavy wooden frame that is shown below, but full instructions are given anyway.

Material List:

Box fan (can be purchased for around $10 at Wal-Mart), 1 yard of both orange and yellow Costume Material (purchased in Wal-Mart fabric dept. for under $5), 1 floodlight and fixture.

Assorted scrap lumber: 2″x2″ boards, misc. pieces of plywood, an d scrap tin sheeting or termite shield.

Tools: cordless drill, nails or drywall screws, hammer, tinsnips, some type of saw.
