Prepare the LEGO 10281 bonsai tree for spooky season
Although LEGO 10281 Bonsai Tree comes with its own customization options, Halloween requires a new color scheme for the set.
With the option of having a bonsai with pink flowers or green leaves, 10281 Bonsai Tree can change just like the real plant. However, if you want to go a step further with pieces outside the set, you can have a different colored bonsai for each season of the year.
That’s exactly what Reddit user u/dito_27 did in a recent custom build shared with LEGO Reddit. Using a variety of brown, yellow and orange parts, they gave 10281 Bonsai Tree a fall makeover.
To make things even scarier, there are also pumpkins littering the ground and spiders perched on the branches. To complete the whole exhibit, they also added a scarecrow with the head of Jack O’Lantern, complete with a pitchfork.
While they didn’t share specific instructions, another Reddit user explained where to get the extra pieces to recreate the look on your own.
“The dark brown pieces are in The Upside Down 75810,” u/Mescad wrote. “Dark orange pieces are spread across multiple sets, but the easiest way to get a lot of them is 21318 Tree House. Bright light orange leaves are scattered across multiple sets, but most abundant in 40524 Sunflowers. But in outside of sets, Bricklink and/or Pick A Brick are cheaper options.
Whether you choose to make your own version or follow their lead, 10281 Bonsai Tree is an easy set to customize throughout the year.
