This video shows you how to do 3 easy things with dry ice that will add that little “extra’ to your Halloween Decor!
- Black Steaming Cauldron.
Just fill 2/3-3/4 full of warm water and add small chunks of dry ice until you get the desired effect!
- Spooky Jack-O-Lantern.
Carve your pumpkin- instead of opening at the top, I found it easier to take out a portion of the back of it. Add a small bowl of warm water inside and add chunks of dry ice to get your desired effect.
- Spooky Punch Bowl!
Find 2 large bowls that will fit inside of each other. Put the dry ice on the bottom of the first bowl. Put the 2nd bowl on top. Add your punch- Sprite and Fruit Punch gives you the blood look you may be going for. Then add some warm water to the bowl with the dry ice and watch the steam come up! Looks like you are serving up some Witches Brew! Just continue to add small amounts of warm water to keep the effect going through the night.
DO NOT TOUCH THE DRY ICE WITH YOUR BARE HANDS!
I bought about 3 pounds from the store. They gave it to me in a bag. Then I just dropped the bag on the floor to break it up.
I then used tongs to get it out of the bag. You can use gloves, an oven mitt, or anything you would like, but be VERY careful! Also, DO NOT store it in your refrigerator or freezer-it will cause them to shut off. You can put it in a cooler with the lid open, or a container.
