Home-Made Projector:

A projector is a great way to display spooky images around your home and on your windows for guests. Look on apps like Pinterest to find Halloween patterns to use in your projection, or even better, create your projection pattern! These are great photo opportunities.

But instead of buying an expensive projector, why not buy one for your phone, or even better, make one yourself? All you need is a box, a magnifying glass or mirror and a phone. There are plenty of online tutorials to make a home projector.

Now you have your projector made, you need the best camera quality phone to produce the crispest, clearest projections.
