Freak out the neighbors with these delightfully wicked pink flamingo skeletons! They appear completely normal during the day, but at night, they transpose into glowing skeletons.
How to Make Pink Flamingo Skeletons
- a Pair of Plastic Pink Flamingos– these are often available at the dollar store for only a buck!
- Glow in the Dark Paint
- Flamingo Skeleton Pattern
Lightly draw the bone pattern onto your plastic flamingo using the skeleton pattern guideline. Paint the areas with glow paint, be sure not to use water-based paint (washable paint) as it will NOT stick to the flamingo.
Let it dry 4-6 hours, charge it well in the sunshine and watch your neighbors do a double-take when the sun goes down.
Here’s what your flamingo will look like to your neighbors during the day:
Our glow in the dark paint skeletons worked for several seasons before needing to be reapplied. We store our pink flamingo decorations in a Rubbermaid tote box in the attic when they’re not in use.
Using this method, you may be able to get a few seasons of use out of your glowing pink flamingo bones. We’ve used our spooky flamingos for seven years so far.
