A Spooky Photo Tutorial For You to Try


We’ve all seen those spooktacular photos where the subject is somehow levitating. If you’ve wondered on how you can achieve the effect, then this tutorial from Jodie and Jen on will give you some great tips. You’ll need a tripod for the best results, and you’ll need to know how to use Photoshop as well (the tutorial is great, but clearly intended for folks who are familiar with the photo editing program already).  The possibilities are endless though, and the photo shoot itself would be loads of fun.  Kick your Halloween spirit into high gear with this delightful idea, and be sure to share the results with your friends here at Geek Crafts.

Halloween: Minecraft Jack-o-lanterns

Minecraft Creeper Pumpkins

‘Tis the season of ghosts and ghouls and creepy jack-o-lanternsHalloween is just over a month away! What could be creepier than a Minecraft Creeper jack-o-lantern? Brenda Ponnay has you covered with an easy tutorial for making your own creepy Creeper pumpkins (or other vegetable).

I thought it was interesting that she was inspired by the green produce from her local farmers’ market, and that she used other vegetables in addition to pumpkins. Who would have thought of a Halloween green pepper?? Clever!

Sadly, my kids are past the days of decorating pumpkins, though I remember some fun Pokemon pumpkins from back in the day. What will you be carving your pumpkin into this year?
