Tree Faces And Talking Trees Are Great For Halloween… Or Year Round Fun!
One of the best Halloween props comes straight out of the Wizard of Oz movie: talking trees!
If you add a talking tree to your Halloween decorations at home, anyone who walks by it will be in for the surprise of their life!
To create the illusion that Mother Nature has gone berserk and created foliage with a fun (or spooky!) personality for Halloween or year round fun, here are some tips…
How To Make Talking Trees
Have you ever wondered how the pros create such life-like features when they make talking trees?
What about talking trees with moving eyes? Or maybe just make it so the eyes are lit up on one tree.
This video shows how an Animatronics talking tree comes to life. Follow the entire construction process — from the basic metal frame to a fully functional talking tree. It looks so real when it’s done!
The tree in this next video looks completely real, especially since it’s not cartoonish in nature. It look like a real pine tree that you would see in anybody’s front yard!
How To Carve Halloween Tree Faces
Next, here are some trees that talk without using any sound.
These are hand-carved trees!
Yep, another way to turn your trees into works of art is to literally carve a face into a tree. It’s a great way to bring an old tree back to life.
Depending on your skills (and the tools you have at hand), you may be able to create a conversation piece like this for your own yard!
Or maybe you want to only carve the face part itself. Whatever style you choose for your Halloween tree face is completely up to you.
How To Make Tree Faces
Tree faces are the simplest way to bring life to the trees on your property. Tree face art like this gives you a chance to show your personality to those who visit.
The best part: outdoor tree faces are not only great during Halloween, but they also add an interesting touch that can be effective year round.
Got really large trees on your property? Check out these realistic looking tree faces that come in small, medium, and large sizes — great for older, larger trees.
This talking tree face is motion-sensored, so it’s activated any time someone walks past the tree. It has lighted eyes, lips that move when he speaks… so cool! Passersby will definitely be startled into thinking he might be real.
Along those same lines, instead of a small Halloween tree face, you could always camouflage a person (or a few people!) to blend in with the trees in your yard. Having real faces in trees would also be another fun way to frighten people!

If there is ONE thing I like… it's C H A N G E! The four seasons and major holidays are my favorite times of the year to recharge — and redecorate. I mostly like to share frugal DIY ideas for seasonal home decorating and party planning (for both, indoors and outside). Because who doesn't enjoy entertaining at home?! But even if you don't host many parties, I think you'll appreciate my DIY hacks and clever ways to decorate your house for the major holidays including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas. Because those are the times when people tend to have the most visitors and overnight houseguests.
