Tuesday is Halloween, which is always somewhat bittersweet for me. It’s one of my favorite holidays, as I love all things ghostly and dark, but I’ve never quite gotten over the fact that I can’t go trick-or-treating anymore. I’ve gone to some good Halloween parties, but for the most part they’ve been consolation prizes that pale in comparison to getting to run up and down the streets demanding candy from strangers. Still, I’ve collected some good Halloween decor over the years, but in my opinion, you can never have too much Halloween stuff. So why not make some more this year? Here are some Halloween things you can 3D print over the next few days – either for a party, or just to surround yourself with spookiness.
These cute little ghosts from MyMiniFactory user Muzz64 print in one piece with an internal spring that causes them to wobble around. One design has arms – or what passes for arms on a ghost – and the other doesn’t, so you can 3D print several to have some variety in your Halloween decor. More adorable than scary, these would be great for a kids’ party.
This ghost, from Multi3D on Thingiverse, is a little spookier with its glowing green eyes. It sounds spookily easy, too – it’s described as a 20-minute project, using PLA for the ghost itself and Multi3D’s Electrifi conductive filament for the electrical circuit. Then just put it on a cord and you’ve got a cool Halloween necklace. Multi3D gave these out at Maker Faire last year, and they were a hit.
This skull beer tap handle from Thingiverse user SDzbenski has a Celtic design on it to make it even more eye-catching. If you have your own bar, this would be a great accent for the season.
Bat wings for your pet. That is all.
Don’t want your roommates drinking your leftover wine? (I know, I know, leftover wine, LOL. Hey, it happens sometimes.) Just peel the label off, stick this creepy bottle stopper from Thingiverse user ForgeDynamics in it, and mutter something about that darned apothecary. They won’t touch it. Probably.
Some people love candy corn, and some people hate it. I personally love it, though it makes me feel terrible. One thing that everyone can probably agree on, though? It makes for excellent tiny missiles. This candy corn launcher from Thingiverse user DragonflyFabrication would be a great costume accessory, or a fantastic way to greet trick-or-treaters. No, don’t do that. Pinging children with tiny sugar triangles may be frowned upon, so save it for your adult party guests.
Here’s a way to unnerve your party guests – mount this triple cyclops eye from MyMiniFactory user Evavooo in strategic locations in the house. By strategic, I’m thinking on the inside of your medicine cabinet door – so when your guests go snooping, they’ll know someone is watching.
