Halloween Yard Decorations

Cost: $0!

Time: 2+ hours total


  • old coconuts (or for other parts of the country you could use gourds)
  • acrylic/latex paint (we just used paint we had in the garage left over from another project. Any color will do, plus you'll need black paint for the faces.)
  • Ad

  • sticks or PVC pipes (anything that will stand up in the ground. We got old bamboo from a neighbor's yard)
  • a drill


  1. Drill large hole in bottom of coconut (or gourd) and drain out any liquid.
  2. Paint half the coconut/gourd with a base coat of any color paint.
  3. Let dry and then paint on the faces in black.
  4. Put coconut/gourd on a stick and press firmly in your yard.

Make as many as you want. It's easy and fun and the neighbors love it!

These are really cute! I don't know how many coconuts or how much bamboo I can rustle up here in MA, but I'll definitely try this with gourds. And it's easy enough to do with the family. Thanks for the idea!

Those awesome. I don't have any coconuts, so I plan to make them with styrofoam balls. Thanks for the idea
