In these tough times I think Halloween is going to be even bigger. Why? Because so much of Halloween fun is DIY magic. From the pumpkin carving to making your trash can into a monster.

So why not earn some extra cash for your work? Check out the User Generated Contest that FEARnet is running around haunting your house. The prize is 25,000 dollars and an appearance on Good Morning America.

Of course don’t forget about the mother of all DIY Halloween contests our own! We want to see what delightfully frightful items you’ve made and we have dozens of awesome prizes to give away! You can enter an Instructable, photos, or video, just make it amazing and it will be eligible to win in one of our six categories: Hack-o-Lantern, Costume, Gadgets and Gizmos, Decorations, Food, and Green, or our Photo and Video categories!
