There’s nothing more scary, more spooky, more bloodcurdling than a Halloween website that looks like it was designed back in the 1990′s. PCTechBytes knows you like to geek-out on Halloween, but we will save you the terrifying trip through the ghastly Internet and provide you with some of our favorite Halloween wallpaper, Halloween pumpkin stencils, and Halloween sound effects to make your favorite holiday a scream.
One of the best sites we found with Halloween wallpaper is Desktop Nexus. You can enlarge the image in your browser to fill your whole desktop so it fits perfectly. On most Operating Systems and web browsers, you will right-click the image and select Set As Desktop Background.
Desktop Nexus does a great job of recognizing your screen resolution and can scale the Halloween wallpaper to fit. The above was our pick. Visit Desktop Nexus and let us know which one you chose.
Halloween Pumpkin Stencils
Coming up with fun pumpkin designs is one thing. Transferring the idea to the pumpkin is another. eHow has dozens of printable pumpkin stencils to choose from. Simply click on the one you want to see, then select Print the Stencil and it prints out in full size. Tape the image to your pumpkin and start cutting.
We found it easier to make small perforations in the paper, remove the stencil, then trace with a marker before cutting. It’s also a good idea to have pumpkin carving tools, as they make it easier to make detailed cuts. Visit eHow for your pumpkin stencils.
Halloween Sound Effects
If you want to keep the kiddies and their chocolate-smeared grins away from your house, you can deploy a playlist of terrifying Halloween sound effects. There are several ways to play these. The easiest would be to create a playlist in iTunes and import these .wav files into it. Attach your iPod to a dock or to external speakers and let it play in the window. You can also burn a CD with these Halloween sound effects and play it over your stereo. The best site we found for Halloween sound effects was Partners in Rhyme.
Last but not least, be sure to dress up your online presence with a new Halloween avatar. An avatar is a picture that represents you in forums, on Twitter, Facebook and other community sites. Be sure to temporarily replace your goofy countenance with a spooky Halloween avatar.
We found a lot of great Halloween avatars over at the Design Ora website.
Let us know what your favorite Halloween wallpaper, pumpkin stencil, spooky sound effects or Halloween avatar website is. No matter what you choose for your Halloween wallpaper, be sure to get into the geek spirit and spread the horror to your family and friends.
