With all the Halloween Costume/Decoration Ideas out there today, here’s another really cool DIY that shows you how to make See Saw Halloween Skeletons that will play by themselves.
The author uses “wiper” motors (similar to the ones used on car wipers) to make the see-saw go back and forth.
This prop was created in an effort to use more wiper motors in my haunt. After using a wiper motor for my UnGrateful Dead band, and another for the skeletons falling off the roof in 2004 I purchase 4 additional motors. They are cheap ($15 or less) and they give your a strong motor that runs on 3-12v DC.
