OK so here’s a magic trick that’s just perfect for the Halloween! It’s a great prop scare for Halloween trick-or-treaters and unsuspecting visitors in your house ;)
This table can be used to surprise and scare people in many different ways! As you can see in the featured image, you can create the head on table illusion. You can also offer candies in a basket, with a hand hidden beneath the candies to grab people’s hand when they try to get some. Or you can simply make something on the table move on its own.
It’s very easy and simple to build. And given the right tools and materials, you can easily finish this table in just a few hours!
Cover it with a dark tablecloth. Place it in a dimly lit and narrow area where people won’t think about walking around it. If you want, you can make someone stand beside the table. That person can give cues to the one hiding behind the table, so he/she knows when to scare people. With these tips your Halloween trick should be a success!
