I've been taking a little bit of a break here. And trying to get back in the craft/blog groove. Mainly, because I miss all my favorites out there! So, here is my attempt at my first Halloween decoration! And yes - for me to have something two weeks in advance is amazing! Remember my Spring pillow I finished in time for summer? That's how I usually roll - late. But I do eventually get there.....
So here is my attempt at Halloween decoration....
It started with a teacup and saucer from Goodwill. I first saw painted ones at Caroline's blog, c.w.frosting. She made beautiful candles with hers, but I am making a little Halloween planter with a leftover succulent from another project.
I started with one of my favorite spray paints, Rustoleum 2x in Grape and Real Orange. And no, Orange and Purple don't usually mix but I like them for Halloween!
And here it is! Grape painted cup and saucer and one Real Orange painted golf ball on a black golf tee. I just tried this but it's not over yet. The golf ball is actually for another project I hope to finish soon. You do believe that, right? It was a finished project until I discovered something was warped - no, not me, but ... well just wait and see.
Here it is getting sprayed Orange. I put it on a bottle cap but could have used another golf tee. Just because they are e v e r y w h e r e. (The guy that fixed my dryer found a handful in it)
So, I sent the pumpkin golf ball off to it's next deal and very sloppily hand painted a ghost on my teacup. Tossed some orange fish tank gravel on top (like the blue I used for my Fourth of July post) and I am done!
Well...........not exactly. I'm playing around with chalk and unsanded grout and paint and glaze and plaster of paris in an effort to find a great combination. And I will - but I still love the basic Martha Stewart chalkboard paint recipe.
And yes, you are officially Booed!
Pass it on!
Pass it on!
