Halloween Skeleton Yard Flamingos Lawn Decor - Reusable Tips: After you are done with the Scary Flamingos...

... paint them pink, or get creative and pick another color or colors. Make sure to use the Krylon Fusion paint made for plastics just below.

Next Halloween make ghosts out of them with white kitchen trash bags, tie around the neck to secure. Optional of course, but you may use stuffing to flesh out the head (ha-ha) or feel compelled to give your ghosts black permanent marker eyes, so go for it if the mood strikes you. :D

Once you get tired of the whole flamingo thing, put it away for a while.

THEN... evil with your favorite neighbor.

The week before Halloween, park the pink flamingo in their yard 1/2 way to their front door. Attach a note to say something like "please let me rest in your yard for just a bit. I need to get some rest before flying back to Florida.

Every day, place the flamingo a couple more feet closer.

The night before Halloween, paint them black, and use glow in the dark paint or stickers to make glowing eyes. Park it right in front of their door. Hopefully you will get a reaction. :D
