This printed bracelet design that was created for Halloween boasts animated elements that bring the pumpkin form atop the wristband to life.

The 'Motorized Halloween Pumpkin Bracelet' shared to Thingverse by user 'gzumwalt' features a set of gears that rotate to spin the smiling jack-o'-lantern in circles. In addition to requiring some additive manufacturing to come into fruition, this 3D-printed bracelet needs some basic wiring to power a battery pack.

Since the advent of 3D printing, makers have taken to creating a variety of novel Halloween decor and accessory items that can replace generic store-bought products. This speaks to the role that additive manufacturing will play in the creation of other holiday products or templates in the future.
