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?
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!
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!

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
