I recently posted a thread about repurposing Christmas blowmolds to Halloween use, and I started adding some pictures of Little Tikes toys I had repurposed as well to the end of the thread ~ However, they are a different item altogether, and there are so many possibilities with them, I thought I would make a new thread.
Many holiday decorators who like to use blowmolds in their displays, also have an affection for incorporating Little Tikes outdoor play toys as Halloween decorations: ride-on toys, teeter-totters, swings and playhouses are very popular, and usually very whimsical. However...
**ZOMBIE BABIES**! (I put that in caps to grab the attention of any reader who prefers the darker side of decorating.)
I was thinking that with the recent popularity of zombie babies that there are endless possibilities for repurposing Little Tikes toys for those darling little zombie children to play on. Using spray paints for plastic in dark colors, screwing on spiders, skulls or severed body parts ~ filling a cart with decapitated heads, etc. You could really creep up these usually whimsical items. That said, my Halloween display is geared toward the tiny TOTs, so my use of them is definitely in the whimsical style. I just wanted to put the 'creepy' idea out there.
