Easy DIY Halloween Props
In this project, we’ll use an Adafruit Circuit Playground to light up a cheap halloween prop. This oversized skull also spews out misty cool fog using a humidifier. This DIY project doesn’t require any soldering so it’s very beginner friendly.
Using a mister is clean and safe for the kids so it’s cool for them to play with it and okay if they put their hands in it. I think adding electronics to cheap halloween props is a lot of fun and great way to introduce DIY projects to your friends and family. The Circuit Playground has lots of sensors on board so you can make it interactive.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
