Eerie Spell Book Summons Up Freak of the Week Honor

January 25, 2018 | Posted in Freak of the Week, News

Over the past few months, we've shared several cheerful Freak-worthy holiday displays because it was the holiday season. We loved them all! But, as we progress deeper into 2018, we plan to cover the entire holiday spectrum — highlighting utterly unique creations no matter what the holiday they are celebrating.

Before we forget, we encourage you to continue sending us photos and videos of projects you've created using AtmosFX Digital Decorations, big and small. They are a great way to inspire the rest of us as we think about the upcoming months. Also, if you have questions about how to create a certain effect, are wondering how someone else’s creation works, or just want to kick around a few ideas with your digital decorating peers, send 'em here:

Now, back to this week's Freak of the Week honoree. This magnificent hand-held DIY spell book was created by Sahara Sears. "I've been wanting to make a cool spell book," Sahara says, "so when I saw the Eerie Eyes decorations I knew I could make a Halloween prop that really makes an impression."


Sahara and her husband host a yearly Halloween party for more than 100 people at their Virginia Beach home. For this year's theme, she knew she wanted a book of spells that could serve as an effective prop. Then, she realized it would be even more mesmerizing if she could pick it up and carry it around. It quickly became an accessory to her witch costume when she attended other friends' parties.

That's a pretty cost-effective decoration and something we're sure many people could easily emulate.

Sahara tells us that she first learned of AtmosFX from her mother and has used a wide array digital decorations to set the mood ever since. She's made picture frames to display UnLiving Portraits, erected Hollusion Projection Material in her front yard to project the dancing skeletons of Bone Chillers, even created a creepy laboratory to confine the undead of Zombie Invasion! Her theme changes each year, and each time she seems to have found some new way to use digital decorations to great effect.

We look forward to seeing what you do for your next Halloween party, Sahara! And, for sharing with us this clever and easy way to utilize Eerie Eyes, we name you Freak of the Week!

Keep the Freak of the Week submissions coming. We always want to see them and so do many other digital decorators! Show us how you’re using our digital decorations and YOU may be our next feature! Send your photos or YouTube links to, and make sure to put "Freak of the Week" in the subject line.
