I’m finally getting into the Halloween spirit and wanted to share a quick DIY project with you guys. You probably already know that I love the retro kitschy vibe of plastic lawn flamingos, so I figured why not turn them into skeletons for Halloween? Cute idea right? Well, I have to admit that this is one of those times where I thought I was being really original and creative, and then saw that you can actually buy them like this. Well, a scarier demon version anyway. Fail. I already had the materials laying around so I did it anyway! Here’s how I did it in case you want to make some yourself.
First I started with a plastic pink flamingo.
Then I sprayed it with satin black spray paint. Which looked pretty cool on its own, but I went with the skeleton idea anyway.
Then I used a white Sharpie paint marker to make the skeleton. I’m not an expert on bird anatomy so you’ll have to forgive my crude interpretation of a flamingo skeleton. Listen, I did my best!
