This is an updated post of a previous roundup of DIY Halloween Books from Seeing Things, my favorite Halloween Blog that is now a DEAD BLOG. If you see these books elsewhere or on Pinterest, they probably have broken links to Seeing Things.
TIP: Download all printables ASAP because some of them are already in Google Documents “trash” but can still be copied.
I have literally been looking for a DIY Lenticular Art tutorial for years, after I saw a huge oil painting one in the office of a talk show personality.
These portraits change as you walk by them – so you get the illusion of one image slowly transforming into another. You can use this for Halloween, like at the Haunted House in Disneyland, where one image is happy and the other image is scary. Or you can use it to represent the change of seasons or facial expressions (as shown above).
This was for sale at Curiousity Shoppe for $16.00, but the site no longer exists.
This is a really cute gift idea for the right person (I can see a few people being really annoyed by someone sewing something into their clothes). You can make your own labels using colorfast fabric sheets for ink jet printers. There’s a tutorial at Instructables on how to do that here. If you plan on selling an inspired version, there are so many places to order etremely cheap labels online.
The original card measured 6″ x 4.5″ and the label was 1.5″ x .3″.
