So we have a three-day weekend coming up with Labor Day on Monday, Sept. 3. Throwing a party to celebrate the world’s greatest workforce? That’s a great idea, but you know what would make it a real party to remember? A DIY fog machine with dry ice, and we happen to know how to make one.
First, you’ll need something to hold the dry ice. This needs to be waterproof, too, since you need to add water to increase the amount of “fog” the dry ice produces. A styrofoam cooler works best for this since you’ll need to cut at least two holes in it. Before putting your dry ice and water into the cooler cut one hole in the lid, the input, and one in the front, the output. Make sure the output hole is high enough that the water won’t spill out.
Fan and Output Pipe
Find a small fan that you don’t mind getting a little duct tape on. Tape the fan so that when it’s turned on it will blow air into the input hole and down onto the dry ice and water. This part is optional, but you can attach a small piece of PVC pipe or old vacuum hose to the output hole to help direct the fog.
Fill the cooler with water up to the bottom of the output hole before adding the dry ice. Wait to add the dry ice until you are ready to party so you don’t waste any, but once you are, let it rip and have a good time.
