Show me your HALLOWEEN stuff!

I haven’t got around to anything new this year so these projects are a re-hash from last year. I need some inspiration for a new project and I thought it’d be fun for one big ghoulish thread so we can see all the spooky and not so spooky stuff in one place. (Even links to previously posted projects would be cool.)

Anyone care to share and inspire me?

These are the two most Holloween-ish projects I’ve done lately. Made chef hubby two phone stands.

Most of the stuff that I actually have pictures of is small, and not all that inspiring (I always forget to take pictures before they go to their new home), here are a few things we made

I purchased the image off Esty (thank you, artists!). I just finished it last night.

Proofgrade Medium Cherry Plywood (because I LOVE the color! I can’t get enough of it.).

I’ve had a Glowforge for over a year now, and I still cannot believe what I can make with it! I am thrilled once again!

I am digging all of your creations, but the phone stands take the prize. Phone stands with skulls made for your love? More, please!

What?! I love the mini scaricatures! Simple, cute creepy images printed on small projects? I scream YES!

One of my favorite books (and I don’t even crochet):

I love the dance of death set, there’s something about skeletons doing everyday things that always strikes a cord for me. :skull:

OMGosh that little skeleton is adorable and so fun! Is it an earring? And I gotta ask, how may of those tiny-tiny jack-o-lantern noses did you lose? I always make two or three becasue I know a few will roll away never to be found lol.

It is! And though I don’t wear them, they are one of my favorites. Hard to tell from the picture, but they are made up of 3 different pieces that layer together, so the little dance they do when the wearer moves make me laugh every time. What can I say, I’m easily amused.

I start with making twice as many as I need usually. After the cut, I try to catch as many as I can with some painters tape across the top of the acrylic before I move anything. Helps a bit, but some still fall down the crumbtray. If I manage to get them out of the machine, I’m good.

I put aluminum foil underneath the material when making small cuts, to catch them before they can fall through. :slight_smile:

I had some extra pane glass and tried etching like ceramic tile. I used transfer tape to mask it. Then the last of red spray paint. It came out runny and chunky. But it added to the effect. Cut a groove with table saw in block of wood to mount it freestanding. Kinda like a microscope slide.

Came in handy at the evening bake sale. [Full disclosure: the 13-year-old is responsible for the design; I just adjusted the etch depth and tweaked the bottom mount to fit around the LEDs.]
