The 8 Greatest Pranks To Pull This Halloween

Trick or Treat! Halloween is literally right around the corner, and we know everyone is excited about the candy and costumes. But the treats aren’t the only thing that’s fun about Halloween. Tricks can bring just as much enjoyment to you and your friends as a whole bag full of goodies.

And we’re here to help you out, because “The Man” wants to keep Halloween pranksters down.

May we present: The 8 Greatest Pranks to Pull This Halloween.

(Please note: These pranks can be done anytime at all during the year, don’t limit yourself!)


#1 Toilet Paper a House
Tools Required: Massive Amounts of Toilet Paper

Toilet Papering a House comes in at number one because of the sheer magnitude of the prank. You don’t go out and throw one roll of toilet paper at a house, oh no, you throw 100 rolls at a house. If it’s on sale you might throw 200, but let’s not push the matter. And this isn’t a prank that just affects the prankee, the whole neighborhood is suffering the wrath of this one. It doesn’t matter if you live four houses down, you can see that toilet paper, and you know that somebody is having a bad day. Plus, the damn stuff just doesn’t pull out of the trees or clean up with a rag. It could take four to five weeks for it to rain and properly break down all of the material. If you pull this prank, you mean business.

#2 Wrap a Car in Saran Wrap
Tools Required: Massive Amounts of Saran Wrap

The perfect prank to play on someone you want to mess with, but not piss off to the point that they press charges. The saran wrapped car will have no damage done to it, but without a doubt will totally screw up the day of whoever you decided to punish. It’ll take a lot of saran wrap to properly cover the entire car too, so don’t step up to the plate unprepared. Upwards of fifteen rolls may be required to ensure that your car is “protected” from the elements and other pranksters. There you go, if you get caught, you have an out. You were just protecting the car from eggs and shaving cream.

#3 Pinked House
Tools Required: Massive Amounts of Pink Yard Flamingos

If a fun prank where no one gets hurt is what you’re after, you’re a weenie. But, if you’re a weenie and still want to go out and raise hell, even a diluted hell… this is for you. It’s probably also the most expensive option on the list, because you will need to buy a crap load of the super fun Pink Yard Flamingos. Of course, if you’re not interested in buying these items, you could steal them from everyone else that owns one. The flamingos must be placed in the front yard, and spread out evenly throughout the yard to get the full effect of the prank. You want it to look natural, and take a long time for the home owner to pick them all up.

#4 Burning Bag of Poop
Tools Required: Paper Bag, Lighter, Dog Poop

The funniest prank in the world, and the only one that has the potential to cause massive damage to a home, so be careful! First of all you need to make sure that someone is actually home before you do this prank. Secondly, make sure they don’t have a wooden deck. If either of these two issues is a concern, please don’t even try the burning sack of poo prank. The last thing you want is to burn someone’s house down. If done properly and safely, and with fresh enough poo, this prank can make your night the funniest ever. Just imagine stepping in poo, and how bad that sucks. Now imagine that poo is on fire. See, it’s worse!

#5 Egg a House
Tool Required: Massive Amounts of Eggs

The most heinous of all of the pranks on this list. If you’ve ever had this done to you, and we have, you know that’s it’s disgusting and can cause some pretty major damage if not removed quickly enough. Only throw eggs at someone you don’t like at all. Because odds are, if they ever find out about it, they’ll never speak to you again, and they’ll probably throw a bag of burning poo on your wooden porch when you’re not home. Raw eggs can damage paint on cars, houses, and doors… so pick your targets well. Try a brick home for the same effect minus the damage. Or, for a whole new spin, hard boil your eggs and then toss them on the roof.

#6 Shaving Cream Attack
Tools Required: Massive Amounts of Shaving Cream

If you choose to take it up a notch and attack someone’s house or car with shaving cream, you are throwing down the gauntlet and asking for war. It will etch itself onto painted materials, take the gloss off of a car, and dry up and be virtually impossible to get off of materials without a heavy rinse. If you want someone to come at you like in the above picture, then swing for the fence and unload a couple of cans on their new car or garage door. If you want to make an impact but not an enemy, try writing/drawing creative things in their lawn with the shaving cream. We suggest something especially vulgar, like a penis. For added fun, try filling up a balloon with shaving cream and dropping it on people/things/animals.

#7 Steal and Smash Pumpkins
Tools Required: Your Hands, A Hard Surface

The old classic, and probably the safest and most harmless prank of them all. You’ll still upset the guy that spent a couple hours carving the perfect monster face on his pumpkin, or the kid that painted hers all afternoon. But, they’ll get over it. Pumpkins rot fairly quick anyway, and besides… Halloween will be over by the time they discover their Jack-O-Lantern has been put to rest in the middle of the street. Be creative though in how you break the pumpkins, tossing them off of high structures and onto your friends is not recommended, but there are certainly inventive ways to take care of business. Check out the annual Punkin Chunkin Contest for example. Farthest “Chunked” Pumpkin… 4434 feet.

Below: Awesomeness.


#8 Ding Dong Ditch
Tools Required: A Ditch, A Lack of Fear (Balls)

First of all, don’t be like the kid in the picture above. Your victim would be able to spot you a mile away in a giant red cowboy hat in the daytime. We suggest giant black cowboy hats in the middle of the night. That is, providing that you have to have a giant cowboy hat on. Otherwise, dress like a ninja. The object is to pick a house out that has a door that’s easily accessible, has a ditch or a bunch of bushes nearby, and is owned by a slow person. For the best results, have someone video taping the event, because the odds are your doorbell ringer won’t have time to enjoy the show since he’s probably going to be shot at and running for his life.

Below: Some kids hit up a house with the Ding Dong Ditch, hang around until the 2:10 mark for a funny finish.


There’s probably a thousand different pranks that you could pull off this Halloween that would be awesome. These are just a few tried and true examples. If you have some good stories about pranks you’ve done, please tell us about them in the Comment Section.

But remember, no matter what you do, try to be safe and not cause any permanent damage to anyone’s property. Repainting the side of a house or car is not cool. Halloween is supposed to be a fun time, and you don’t want to go to jail for something silly.

Happy Halloween!

  1. One that got pulled on my was bologna…thankfully it was in high school, when i had an old crappy car i didn’t care about! My friends put bologna on my car, and spaced them evenly, so that when i found my car in the morning and took it off, my car looked like it had been painted with polka dots! I thought it was funny! My parents didn’t! It WILL RUIN THE PAINT JOB ON A CAR!!!

  2. 2 buddies of mine and myself went to another friend of ours house and the night before a rivaling football game we put the rivals initials on his car windows and mirrors and 2 guys cars that were on the team spending the night. We did that with toothpaste then sarand wrapped all three cars. We put dozons of for sale signs and vote for signs in the yard. Then to top it all off we put a dirt mound at the end of his driveway to he couldn’t get out without shoveling all the dirt first.

  3. That ding dong ditch video was priceless.

    Also it would have been a good idea to do what they did except wear a mask and scare the dude before you run away.

  4. another good one is hang a scary halloween decoration at thier front door. When they open the door they get scared by it!
    Toliet papering is still the best classic!!

  5. back in high school i heard of some people going to a bagel store after hours when they had thrown away all the bagels. after cleaning out the dumpster out back they went on to completely cover someones yard in old moldy bagels

  6. Somebody ticked you off? Use a 1 lb. container of table salt to slowly write something on his lawn. Make it a solid trail. It’ll burn your words into the grass and be clearly visible for a long time till the grass overgrows it. Do it in the wee hours of the morning. If you’re identified, your life will be in danger.

  7. Freeze a can of shaving/ whipped cream
    find a car with the window slightly open tha you want to prank
    Cut the top off the can with a hacksaw (it wont explode its frozen) and put it in the window, as it thaws it fills the car with the foam

  8. some of u r mean u gotta admite pay back is a b***h is funny the shaving cream one. and ding dong ditch is my fav to do on hollowween because scaring the crap outtta lil kids is harllaris.

  9. The best halloween prank is to load up hedge apples in your truck untill it wont hold anymore you need at least 7 or 8 hundred and drive by a house in the middle of the night and start throwing them into the yard you may have to make a couple of passes by the house buy keep driving by untill you get all the hedge apples spread across there yard. just be carefull not to hit there house or car.

  10. lol i did the ding dong ditch before with my friend! it was so funny! see theres a crazy person on our road.we rung the doorbell. my friend flipped out and jumped in te bushes. i didint know what to do. then the doorstarted to open. i jumped in the bushes too. the lady came then saw no one was there. she almost found us. she was P.O.d! then she poked the bushes. my friend squeaked. she screamed and we ran home with her screaming IM GONNA CALL THE COPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. I pull pranks every year! My and my buddies skateboard down to the school near my house and take a backpack with a shitload of stuff. Everything from dog poop to throwing eggs from the ally way!

  12. i wanna try throwing TNT Blasts/ the green Crackle balls fireworks at peoples door steps lol

  13. The ding-dong ditch is classic, and helps you train for cross country! but since i live on a farm i could get something WAY worse than dog poop. pig poop is well known to be the foulest thing ever, and skunk is horrid an all but it doesn’t compare to rotten tomatoes or rotten eggs!

  14. One time I did the burning shit bag with a twist……. Took bags of dog shit and threw them on and at the house real messy and gross clean up. And on top of that we burning shitbagged his house

  15. It’s only fun if you’re a person who enjoys hurting and disrespecting. I’ve never been so bored I needed to lower myself to any of those levels, and I’ve never felt any need to prank people. So you ring a bell and run… So you do something dirtier… what does all that mean, anyway? You now think you’re legend? Are these stories you’ll be telling your grandchildren one day? Do you really think people will even care about your stupid story? Your antics bore me and your stories, moreso. You’re stupid, and a waste of good air suckers. And in this day and age any home pranks could too easily be met by a homeowner shooting at you. Incidentally, some of the comments here stating your prank sound grossly exaggerated. Many of you are simply lacking intelligence. There’s nothing admirable about any of your stories.

  16. Great ideas for friends and a few enemies.

    As a high school teacher, I’ve had my car egged a few times on Halloween. Never fun to clean up. lol.
