Welcome to the Instructables Halloween Make-Along 2016! This is a new event we are trying out this year, as a fun way to get motivated and stay on track for all our ambitious Halloween projects. Every week, from now until the end of October, there will be a different theme or discussion prompt to participate in, and we will be doing weekly drawings for people who post in this forum thread to win a Leatherman Skeletool! At the end, we will be doing a drawing for everyone who participates for the chance to win a Cannon EOS Rebel Camera! So jump on in, show us what you're making to to get ready for Halloween!
Week 1: September 19-25
Ideas, Inspiration, and Planning
What is your costume going to be? What are you going to build/make? What materials do you need to make it happen? Post your preliminary sketches!
Week 2: September 26 - October 2
Measure Twice, Cut Once
Assemble materials and begin your creation. What steps are you taking as the foundation of your project?
Week 3: October 3 - 9
Start your instructable and write what you do as you go along. It will make it much easier to remember what you did later on when trying to finish writing up your Instructable! Remember to post about your progress on this forum thread!
Week 4: October 10 - 16
Get by with a little help from our friends
In a jam? Ask for help! If your project is going smoothly, see if you can help out someone else. Words of encouragement definitely count as help!
Week 5: October 17 - October 23
Hopefully, we are almost done! How’s your progress? Are you on track?
Week 6: October 24 - October 31
Finishing frenzy and Final Touches
Hopefully you’re almost done with your project! Or...you waited until the last minute to start. It’s all good, we will get through this together!
