A look back at my Halloween-inspired builds

Home Technology

I’m not going to ramble on again about how I didn’t make anything this year for Halloween. I’m over that thanks to my new friend, Robot Zombie Cat. However, I thought I would do a quick recap of my previous Halloween-inspired builds that I actually completed!

First up is my “Scariest Pumpkin Ever” build. I had a great time testing this project out on the neighborhood kiddies! HONK! Check out the link for complete build instructions. Just a word of warning, you neighbors are going to hate you! Trust me, I know. A big thanks to everyone who sent me links to your own builds inspired by this project. I really appreciate it!

Next up is my Gakken Mechamo Crab build with a few additional creepy parts. Again, this was a lot of fun to make, and has been very popular when I bring it to Maker Faire. Check out the link for another video of this creepy-crawler in action. Eeeeeeek, eeeek, blip, blip!

My last Halloween inspired build was the Animated Ghost kit from the Maker Shed. It’s a really easy kit to make, and it always manages to freak-out anyone that gets too close! Remember, it’s never too early to start working on next year’s projects!
