    This Batman bat house is adorable with its upside-down bat signal. This spooktacular little upside-down house is called Mus. It was made by Spanish design studio Estres in effort to demonstrate that having bats around is beneficial. According to the Organization for Bat Preservation:
    Bats are not pests, they actually help control insect pests. An individual bat can eat thousands of mosquito-sized insects in one night. Bats are critical components to many ecosystems because they help control insect populations, pollinate flowers and fruit bats aid in seed dispersal.”
    There are also plans available to build your own bat house.  Click here for more information, complete plans, instructions and a video tutorial.

    Los Angeles-based Rob Lewbel has created spooky skull wall sconces made from recycled ‘Crystal Head Vodka’ bottles.
    "This is a wall sconce made from a recycled Crystal Head Vodka 750 ML bottle. A set of two of these would look awesome on either side of the bar or mantel. Switch the bulb to red for Halloween! It takes a candelabra sized bulb, up to 40 watts and I can finish the brass metal in black or oil rubbed bronze, or leave it unfinished altogether."
    Each is made by hand and takes a candelabra-sized bulb (up to 40 watts). It’s available with the brass metal finished in black or oil rubbed bronze, or you can get it completely unfinished.

    Blogger "Stubbs" wanted to be able to use her home’s second bedroom for hobbies and working without sacrificing its usefulness for overnight guests, so she decided to Made a pull-down ‘Murphy bed’ for the space.
    "Murphy beds are pretty spectacular. They are also spectacularly expensive. I looked around, and the best price I found on a bare bones Murphy was $1899. I don’t know about you, but I have way more ways to spend money on any given day than I have money to spend. So I decided to look into what it might take to build my own, since I’d have to put one together if I ordered it anyway. I found a kit I could buy that came with all the specialty hardware (bed stops, gas pistons, legs, etc.) and written and DVD instructions for cutting the wood and putting it together. I also ordered the light kit so I wouldn’t need night tables anymore.
     Since Murphy beds are the ultimate space maximizers, it only made sense to build it using Time Lord technology: bigger on the inside
    !    "
    Here, her blog how she built the whole thing.

    The paper craft was designed by John Collins. In February 2012, John Collins, a.k.a The Paper Airplane Guys, broke the all-time distance record for paper airplane flight by throwing his airplane at a total distance of 226 feet and 10 inches.
    Collins' new book, The New World Champion Paper Airplane Book: Featuring the World Record-Breaking Design, with Tear-Out Planes to Fold and Fly:
    Paper airplanes embody the scientific method. Every throw is an experiment. It's a hobby that begs the paper pilot to understand ever more in order to excel. Hypothesis, experiment design, trial, and results—it's all built into every plane and every throw. To play with a paper airplane is to dabble in science, whether you know it or not.
    We have a number of global issues confronting us. Global energy shortages, food shortages, water shortages, and something people are calling global warming are all worrisome. These problems will have answers that only science can provide. We have no spare brains on the planet. We need everyone thinking about these challenges in a rigorous way.
    Imagine this: a world of people playing with science, who get up every morning, focus on what's good, and imagine how to make more of that. You can call me a dreamer. I don't mind. You don't have to believe a word of what I say. Just make a paper airplane and experience how exhilarating that feels. We're born makers. When you make something, anything from a pie to a pencil drawing, it's like waking a dormant part of you. The world shifts slightly. You can feel it, and it feels good.

    Etsyer Wintercroft offers plans and instructions to make your own 3D polygon skull mask from cardboard.
    "The instructions and templates are designed to be easy to follow, so that the mask can be assembled by anyone, using local materials and removing the need for shipping. besides it's good fun turning a 2D material in to a 3D mask. The templates come plain white and you can decorate the finished mask however you like.
    This mask is simple to make and the construction techniques are the same as my other masks. basically, if you can cut out shapes, match up numbers and tape edges together, you can build the mask. It is as simple as that. It takes approximately two to three hours to build from printing the templates to finishing the mask. The finished masks are pretty robust due the their polygon construction and will survive the wildest of parties."
