It’s just one week away from Halloween, are you excited? Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Christmas are great holidays, but as for the best, it has to be Halloween.
Trick-or-treating might just be a thing for kids, but Halloween is for everybody!
It’s a holiday about pumpkins, candies, pranks, costumes...
It gives you a perfect excuse to dress up and release your inner self.
There will be Halloween episodes of your favorite TV shows.
You’d somehow like to watch horror movies the whole night even if the scariest movie that you’ve ever watched is Toy Story 4!
And, it’s also the best time of the year to spice up your house with some holiday spirit. When it comes to making props or decorations, your good old 3D printer always offers the perfect help.
Get the printing materials you need, warm up your printer, and print out one of these scary things to indulge in some spooky fun this Halloween!
Let’s start with this adorable Jack-o-lantern pumpkin, this one is quick and easy. If you are not printing with glow-in-the-dark filaments, insert some LEDs from the opening top to light up this little evil pumpkin.

2. Flat Bat and Spider
Can you imagine how your significant other will freak out when they see a haunted mirror of flying bats when they turn on the light in the bathroom? These flat critters are just the thing to spook your spouse. After printing out a bunch of bats or spiders, adhere them to the mirror or window with double-sided tapes to create a spooky atmosphere around the house.

3. Demon Baby Halloween Prop
The demon baby is my personal favorite of this collection. It’s seriously creepy and easy to make. When the prop is printed, it can be placed under a tight tee, then you are done with installing a baby pushing out of its mother’s belly. The costume is best fitted for a pregnant woman, but if you really want to become the mother of a demon, try it yourself!

A ghost can fit into any Halloween setting. This model is a quick print with a smooth, matte surface thanks to the UV LCD resins. There are all kinds of designs for white ghosts to print on Thingiverse, I picked this little cute one instead of scary ones to make it fun for all.
5. Moveable Skeleton
This moveable skeleton is printed in individual parts. It looks small but the one in the image is about 12 inches high. It can be scaled up if you have a printer with a large volume. Hide the bones in a closet or hang in a doorway, greet your guests in a spooktacular way. Use string or nails to connect all the parts, and make sure you print enough pieces for 2 arms and 2 legs.

6. Haunted House
Every scary story needs a haunted house. Put this model inside of your house, behind some moving curtains for people to see the silhouette. You can remix it with other decorations like ghoulish pumpkins, spiderwebs, “BOO!” signs and flying ghosts.

7. Witch’s Cauldron
No Halloween celebration would be complete without a witch’s cauldron! This gothic-style cauldron can be used to hold candies or be set up as a spooky display with other freaky props you want to put inside.

8. Kongo's Bugging Eyeballs
Just a few days to go before the Halloween party? No worries, make Kongo’s Bugging Eyeballs for a killer last-minute costume. kongorilla from Thingiverse designed this with embossed veins, so you can trace along when painting it during the post-process.
