The Halloween mantle is coming along spookily! I have a few more finishing touches to add before I'm ready to declare it finished. So far, I'm loving it!
My second phase went a little something like this...
1. Find a funky mirror that I could paint glossy black!
This one would do just fine!
I taped off the mirror part and started spraying away.
And because the paint I was using had a matte finish....I topped it off with a glossy coat.
2. Cover wooden letters that spelled BOO with our specialty foil paper.
I used Mod Podge to stick it down and then trimmed the contour with an X-Acto knife.
After the glue dried, I sanded the edges and painted the backs & insides black. I love that you don't have to be too careful with your painting. A little black on the edges and front just seems to fit the occasion.
3. Add more glitz and bling of course!
A few years ago, I covered 3 fake pumpkins with glitter. This year I wanted to give them an equally sparkly friend.
So....I painted another fake pumpkin black and covered it with orange rhinestones.
4. Arrange all decorations on the mantle.
I still want to add a mini banner and spiderwebs and then I'll post the finished project.
