Prepare LEGO 10281 Bonsai Tree for spooky season

Although LEGO 10281 Bonsai Tree comes with its own customisation options, Halloween calls for a new colour scheme for the set.

With the option to have a pink flowering Bonsai or a green leafy one, 10281 Bonsai Tree can change just like the real-life plant. However, if you want to take this one step further with pieces from outside of the set, you can have a different coloured Bonsai Tree for every season of the year.

Reddit user u/dito_27 did just that in a recent custom build shared to the LEGO Reddit. Using a variety of brown, yellow, and orange parts, they gave 10281 Bonsai Tree an autumnal makeover.

To make things extra spooky, there are also pumpkins littering the floor and spiders perched on the branches. To round off the entire display, they also added a Jack O’Lantern-headed scarecrow, complete with a pitchfork.

Although they didn’t share specific instructions, another Reddit user did explain where to get the additional parts to recreate the look for yourself.

“The dark brown pieces are in The Upside Down 75810,” wrote u/Mescad. “The dark orange pieces are in several sets, but the easiest way to get a lot of them is the 21318 Tree House. The bright light orange leaves are scattered through several sets, but most plentiful in 40524 Sunflowers. But outside of sets, Bricklink and/or Pick A Brick are cheaper options.”

Whether you choose to do your own version or follow their lead, 10281 Bonsai Tree is an easy set to have fun customising throughout the year.
