October’s here, the nights are drawing in, spiders are attempting to take over your house and is there a face on that tree stump? It can only mean one thing – it’s nearly Halloween! Yes, it’s the season for scaring; so time to hit your 3D printers and turn out some serious spookiness.
At Faberdashery we love any chance to scare ourselves silly. So in celebration of the most terrifying time of the year, we have put together our definitive guide to 3D printing for Halloween.
Here’s our top ten Halloween 3D prints.
1. Glowing skulls
These prints come from our ‘Skull Playset’ which you can find on Thingiverse and Youmagine. They make great halloween decor as well as spooky serving bowls. Add to the terror and print them in Glowbug Yellow. Or go big, like we did, and print a terrifying giant skull!
Murder of crows anyone? Yes, of course! Find the 3d file here.
3. Poison Apple
This apple design has to be the perfect use for Classic Black this Halloween. It’s also a great way to dish out halloween treats. Put a few sour sweets in the mix and wait for your victim to take a bite! Mwahahahaha…..
Don’t get stuck with hollowing and carving shenanigans. Put your 3d printer to work and print out these fantastic pumpkin prints in translucent Orange Fizz!
Originally designed to sit atop your drinks bottle, this 3d printed troll by David Hagemann works perfectly as a glowing halloween goblin. He does have printable eyes but we found that these candy eyeballs were just a bit more menacing.
We’ve called these Glo-bobs as they are designed to thread onto glow stick bands. They make great alternatives to halloween sweet treats and keep little monsters visible in the dark.
Bats are a halloween staple. These designs are quick and easy. Print them in Classic Black and Smoky Black and hang them up or stick them on your walls for some spooktacular decor. Find the designs on Thingiverse and Youmagine.
These spiders by Scott Lahteine are creepily realistic and perfect for Halloween mischief. Place them amongst your Halloween decor, put them on your Halloween treats, nestle them in your Halloween hair or launch them at your Halloween victims….
9. Tree Stump
That tree is definitely looking at you funny! We shrunk down this Tree Stump Pencil Holder by Casey, and printed it in Smoky Black to create the perfect Halloween candlestick.
Get the message across with this ‘boo’ sign. Download on Thingiverse and Youmagine. We printed our one in Earl Grey and Glowbug.
We hope you have enjoyed our Halloween 3D print guide. We’ll be posting our Halloween prints on Twitter, Facebook and Google + in the run up to Halloween. We’re really looking forward to seeing your Halloween makes so be sure to tag them with Faberdashery.
Happy Halloween printing everyone!

Turn on your printer and get ready to print fun! Yes, it’s that time again – Faberdashery are launching a delicious new set of colours for Summer. And delicious is certainly what they are!
Inspired by candy flavours our pastel collection is pure, unadulterated printing fun. We’ve covered all the pastel shades from refreshing sky blue to warm buttery buff. So now with our original pastel pink – Cherry Blossom Pink – we have six terrific shades of pastel.
The five new colours to play with are: Peppermint Cream, Bubblegum Blue, Sugar Plum, Pistachio Pie and Vanilla Milk.
But that is not all! To celebrate the launch of our new range we created a set of beautiful, 3D printable containers available for download on Thingiverse and YouMagine. Each reflect bold shapes and patterns found in nature and are the perfect complement to our luscious pastels. There are three designs to enjoy: the Cactus Cup, the Ripple Bowl and the Armadillo Dish. The combination of these strong geometric designs with our fun new candy colours makes for some stunning prints.
So take a romp in our new pastel collection and add some playfulness to your prints!

Drum roll please ~ It’s time to release our new Super Secret Crackers!
Last Christmas we designed a set of gorgeous 3D printable decorations. This year, to celebrate the season of sharing, we’ve created three extra special designs that join our 2013 Super Secret Cracker collection. As before, the crackers print with a hidden gift inside that’s only revealed when you snap the cracker in half. We think these are our best designs yet. Can you guess what’s in the crackers? No peeking now…
