Brick or Treat! 3 Spooky Halloween LEGO® Builds

Crazy costumes, scary stories, tons of treats – what could be better than Halloween?! A Halloween full of LEGO® bricks, of course! Here are three ghoulish LEGO ideas to get you in the spooky spirit.


Set a scary scene with pumpkin decorations. It only takes a few orange pieces to make a basic pumpkin shape, but if you have more, try making the biggest pumpkin you can!

You could even leave gaps where the black parts are, and shine a light from behind, to make your LEGO masterpiece like a real jack-o'-lantern!


What’s the scariest face you can make? These spooky, kooky faces would make great decorations for a haunted house party!

The vampire hair is made from black slope bricks, and his fangs are angled tooth plates. You can make the skeleton’s teeth from white cone pieces, and the scary clown’s eyebrows with purple angled plates.


Using ball-and-socket plates for the knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows, and wrists, you can make a dancing skeleton! Place it against a dark background and it takes on an even spookier look – all the joints seem to disappear!

Tip: make large feet so your skeleton can stand up on its own.

Happy Halloween-ing!
