From costumes to door decorations paint is the simplest and cheapest way to get some great effects!
A little facepaint and a skillful hand can turn a cute costume into a WOW costume!
I love this costume that my son wore when he was four. Holding his sweet little face in my hand, while I painting his whiskers and stripes, is a memory that I will cherish forever:)
But the kiddos are getting older and not as eager to have me paint their faces anymore:(
This year I painted a door decor. This was a quick and inexpensive way to add a little creepiness to the festivities this evening.
For this project all I needed (were things I already had)
Roll of white craft paper
Black craft paint
Some old brushes
A spooky picture for inspiration
About one hour of time
A black light
This picture served as inspiration
With properly placed positive and negative space and a few painting techniques, dry brush and texture rubbing, here is the finish painting.
I will hang this painting on the outside of my front door this evening with a black light replacing the porch light. Hopefully it will give the effect that I'm looking for. A little ghostly spirit to greet our trick or treaters!
This is day two of SITS (the greatest blog on the web)giveaway contest!
Happy Halloween! I hope you get lots of treats!
