Here's how to make your own zombie baby! I made a bunch of these a few years ago and it was a real hit! The kids were really into them. All you need is to pick up a baby doll from any thrift store, and you're ready to go.

Step one! Take the baby doll outside and spray paint the entire doll black and let it fully dry.

Once the doll is fully painted and dried, you're going to start dry brushing it with white paint.

Cover the entire doll with the white allowing the black to show through the cracks.

Once that’s done let it dry. It'll sort of look like stone- really creepy!

Once it's fully dried, grab some red paint.

Then begin adding some red spots on the eyes, hands, and legs. and a big X on the chest.

I added the cross using some safety pins.

And the zombie baby is now ready for her debut!

What do you think? They only cost me about 60 cents per doll to make! Have fun decorating for Halloween!

This was a fun spooky display I did. Check out more of what I do on my Facebook page- Gilbert Marketplace

    'Just wondering if it was kids of any particular age that were 'into them'?

    Will the paints stand up to fools be outside in the elements?

    I made this prior to Halloween!

    The difference is that I didn't precoat them. I didn't have time! But they still turned out really good! Thank you!

      Additionally, i spray painted them silver. Again, time and that is the resource I had at the time :)
