DIY Halloween Tricks and/or Treats

Perhaps unsurprisingly, SparkFun has more Halloween-themed projects and tutorials than just about anything else. Our favorite holiday is only nine days away, but with as many options as you have to choose from here, that leaves you plenty of time to make some of these costumes, props and projects and impress/frighten the whole neighborhood.
