Halloween is getting so close! I can’t believe it’s less than a week away already. This month seriously flew by! I really tried to knock this DIY out much sooner, but my hubby’s birthday was last week and we were out of town celebrating as a family. BUT, better late than never! I’m excited to share this one with you guys. Have you seen the black and white skeleton flamingos? I think they’re so cool, so I decided to add my own twist and make mine rainbow colored. Check it out!Rainbow skeleton flamingos diy

What you’ll need:

Rainbow skeleton flamingo craftI ordered these adorable retro flamingos from Amazon that you can get here. I chose some poppin’ bright spray paint colors that go with the rest of my Halloween decor. In a ventilated area, spray each one until it’s completely covered. Let dry, and spray a second coat so it’s nice and even. They’re looking awesome already, yeah?Diy colorful skeleton flamingoI searched around on Google for a guide on how a flamingo’s skeleton looks and kind of did my own version. Using white acrylic paint, I hand painted the bones. These will require a second coat as well, unless you want a look that’s not as prominent. You could also make the bones look a little “frayed” or cracked if you wanted them more zombified. Not gonna lie, this process was a bit time consuming for each one, but worth it because of how cute they are! artfuldays skeleton flamingoMy babies are done! Be sure to coat them with a clear sealant so they can withstand rain and what not. Otherwise, the acrylic paint won’t last. Artfuldays skeleton flamingos diyI love how vibrant they are. This blend of colors give off such a fun Halloween vibe! Rainbow skeleton flamingos craftI had so much fun arranging them around our yard and showing them off.
