Silhouette Projector

Picture of Silhouette Projector



Use a mirror to make a Halloween silhouette projector. The image on my front door is about 15" wide. I was able to get a 10' projection by using a 12" mirror and increasing the distance between the mirror and the side of my house. Happy Halloween.

I like this one. I have some larger mirrors that I could use in this way. Thanks for the idea.

Larger mirrors work better. Kids love to be involved too.

You've got my vote.
Merry Xmas.!
Great! That should spook some trick-or-treaters.

My dad used to do something like this for Christmas, back in the 60s. He used a spotlight. The projected image covered a good 8-10 feet on the side of the house, if I remember right. Very effective.

Very clever! This could also be used to make 3-dimensional designs on walls and suchlike. Definitely useful for bedroom/halloween decoration!
Sweet idea! So simple and gives me an idea for Christmas decoration too. Use a garden solar light hacked to provide the light and it could be used year round with different images with no battery replacement!
