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! 2. Crows 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….. 4. Pumpkins 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! 5. Goblin 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. 6. Glo-bobs 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. 7. Bats 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. 8. Spiders 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. 10. Boo 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!
