With just a few snaps you can use littleBits to turn an existing portrait or picture into the perfect haunted house accessory! You’ll be able to creep out house guests and family members by making a set of eyes in a portrait blink as they walk by. Recreate portraits from Harry Potter, scenes from Scooby Doo, or something of your very own with the Creepy Portrait Project Pack.
To make the Creepy Portrait circuit
Make your circuit of Battery–>Motion Trigger–>Wire–>Servo
