Outdoor Decoration

I'm looking into building a fairly large sized outdoor Christmas decoration, possibly mechanized, and I'm wondering what materials may be good to use. I live in an area where snow is likely and rain is a definite possibility. Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Decorating with Photography...

Found this company, Juicywalls, online. They make custom designed wallpaper and canvas prints of really high quality (and pretty cheap, for the type of product). You can determine the precise size of the prints or measurements for wallpaper, which is great, but the really cool aspect is that you can upload your own photography for these products. It's high quality digital printing, so the image is super clear and sharp. They also offer an option for photographers to sell their work from their own site, with an application called the Walldesigner. You integrate the code into your website, and sell your photography, and Juicywalls makes the product, deals with all the customers, and handles the payment and shipping. Seems like a really cool way to either get your photography out there, or just do some cool, personalized decorating! The website is http://www.juicywalls.com

Halloween Decor Contest!

Hello everyone!  Every year for the halloween contests we the staff have to draw some lines between props, costumes, and decor items.  This year we've decided to draw the lines similar to where actual theater companies draw their lines.  Believe it or not there is a prop union, costume union, and set union.  It helps to give us some firm definitions of what item goes into what contest!   This year we are defining decor as: "Anything in a space that adds to the ambiance or feel of a space.  At the same time not an item being held by someone for the purpose of supporting their costume."   Examples below with notes on each of them.  If you have any questions feel free to comment below and I'll answer you to the best of my ability! Want to enter the decor contest?  Check it out here!

Need some room decor ideas.

My room is boring. I can do anything but paint the walls (we rent) But I CAN cover them floor to ceiling with whatever I wish. I've been looking for some kind of interesting pattern. I like bats and skulls. (realistic of both) But skulls are so overplayed, and bats seem like a far stretch to decorate with. I'm pretty artistic, and awfully handy with making stuff (especially for a 15 year old, been building my whole life.) I have a large piece of flat cardboard that backed a John Lennon Poster I recently bought, and a piece of black foamboard. I plan on taping, cutting, painting the cardboard (probably a bat design, I'm just recently getting into them) and drawing another bat on the black foamboard using silver sharpie. Sooo.... any design ideas you guys have for making things, such as any kind of wall hanging would be nice to hear about.

Ting is thrilled to partner with Instructables for the 2016 Halloween Decor Contest!

Here at Ting, we've been huge fans of Instructables for years. We actually covered the Instructables app last January as part of our featured “ App of the Week" YouTube video series, and many of us in the Tucows office (parent company of Ting) use Instructables all the time! Ting has been involved in the DIY community for awhile now, partnering with sites like Adafruit in the past, so we thought it was finally time to host a contest with Instructables. Instructables users are a great fit for Ting because, as a DIY-er, you like to be in control. Ting gives you complete control over your account, your usage and ultimately, your monthly bill. With Ting you don't pick a plan - how you use your phone determines what you pay each month. Use less? Pay less. Every month is different. Use the instructables.ting.com promo link when signing up to get $25 in account credit if you bring over your own phone or $25 off a new phone from the Ting Shop. The average bill per phone on Ting is just $23 a month, meaning your promotional credit will likely cover your first month's bill!

If you have any specific questions, feel free to shoot me an email: jesse(at)ting(dot)com Thanks again to Instructables for getting us on board and good luck with the contest! We can't wait to see your awesome creations :) Cheers, Jesse from the Ting team

Halloween Decoration Contest Winners - 2012

With a whooping 365 Halloween Decorations entered, the competition for this year's contest was a tough one. The editors had a hard time narrowing down the finalists. However, with the help of 13 spooky judges, winners were chosen. I would like to congratulate the winners, and thank everyone who put in the time and effort to throw their hat into the cauldron. Anyhow… on with it… I am pleased to announce that this year's winning decoration is flaming_pele!'s build of a Giant Tentacle Monster. This project was selected by the judges because it was original, fun, well-documented and approachable. With easy-to-find materials, they demonstrated that anyone can menace their neighborhood with a giant cartoonish tentacle monster. Their technique was clever, and the results were great. I foresee this inspiring more large creations next year. Speaking of which, all of our second place winners put new spins on old classics. Noelportugal made a traditional Magic Mirror, but gave it a new spin with built-in candy dispenser. HaHaBird mashed Tetris and jack-o-lanterns together to make Pumpktris, which is unlike anything we have seen before. And of course, there is kcli's the Hearse-Style Carriage which resurrects old-fashioned horse carriage as a creepy and stylish hearse. The runner-ups show how eclectic this years entries were. From traditional grim reaper decorations, to stat-of-the-art glow-in-the-dark 3D-printed ghost mobiles, we ended up with some pretty interesting decorations this year. Be sure to not only check out all of the awesome finalists, but the rest of this year's entries. Now that Halloween is over, it means that you have a full year to think about what to do next year. I now that I already am. While installing the foam spewing pumpkin, I already figured out what my decoration is going to be for next year. Let's just say that it is going to be a blast. -Randy

individually addressable led DECORA switch

Greetings collective Instructables genius, Here's the deal, I have a kitchen,  I also have several strips of individually addressable LED's powered by the same supply.  I like the led's, I really the fade between teal and blue as it gives the impression that you're underwater.  At any rate, having anything other than a decora sized switch is out of the question.  I don't need another remote, or some box with switches on it to control the LEDs.  I'd really like a switch that can be mounted in a single gang electrical box, that can be covered by a decora faceplate.  I have a media cabinet where the power supply for the LED's is housed, and the switch can run to the supply in the cabinet.  I need at least 4 programs (like the underwater effect), though 8 would be ideal.  Any thoughts on how to approach this?  I'd spend upwards of $80 for a finished product.   Any input is appreciated.  Thank you Eric

How to Take Down a Traverse Decorative Rod

Hello Friends, Decorative traverse rods are one way to accentuate your windows with drapery. Traverse rods enable you to open and close the drapes with a pull cord. Sometimes one or more of the rings breaks requiring replacement. Unfortunately replacing rings requires removing the traverse rod from the window. Taking down a traverse decorative rod enables you to separate the rod and remove the faulty rings. Unlike standard rods, the traverse rod fits inside a channel clip across the top of the mounting brackets. Unhook the drapes from the traverse rod master carrier. The drapes hang on metal hooks that lift out of holes in the traverse rod. Hold one end of the traverse rod with one hand and turn the decorative end cap counterclockwise with your free hand. Remove the end caps on both ends in this manner. Find the screw on the retaining clips securing the rod to the mounting clips. There is a mounting clip on each end and one in the center. Remove the screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Grasp the center of the rod and lift straight up to remove it from the brackets. Pull the rod away from the wall. Thanks and Regards, Baron Davis

How do you reupholster a "click-clack" futon?

I have a very small, black click clack futon couch. Its almost exactly like this futon at target http://www.target.com/p/Sofa-Bed-Black/-/A-12184769 I've tackled very small reupholstering jobs before, but nothing as big as this. My main worry is that it has moving parts(back rest folds all the way down, as do the arm rests to create a platform bed), and the fabric having enough slack to do this on a regular basis. At the same time I don't want the new fabric to look saggy when the futon is in the couch position. Also I would like to add more cushioning to make it more comfortable, but don't know how to. Has any one done this before with this kind of futon?  I appreciate any advice, or suggestions.
