{DIY} Skeleton Flamingos

I think I’ve found the silver lining to our current COVID situation: quality time with Michael.

We are spending a lot of time together: between “Mom School,” “Zoom school,” and the shortened days of “in-person school,” it’s all Megan & Michael time. All. The. Time.

While Michael works on his school work and crafts, I’m trying to not be on my phone all of the time, so I’ve been finishing up some in-process crafting projects. (Our school room is the craft room, after all.)

I found an image of skeleton flamingos on Pinterest and I thought they were fun, decorative, and not too scary.

So, I bought some flamingos from Amazon. Do note: these are “mini” flamingos and much smaller than I had expected. 

We had some leftover matte black spray paint, so I set up a spray paint area and went to town.

Fast forward a few months, and I finally had the time and tools to finish the project!

What do you need? 

  • Matte black spray paint (We used Rustoleum’s High Heat spray paint, leftover from painting our fireplace, likely purchased from Home Depot)
  • Plastic flamingos
  • White oil-based paint pen (I think I got mine from Michaels, medium tipped)

That’s it!

I searched a few images on Pinterest and just started drawing. The paint I used dulled my white pen a bit throughout, so I wiped off the tip and kept going.

It took just a few worksheets, crafts, and PlayDoh sessions and I was done! These actually took less time than I expected.
