Day 4 of May Arts / Tattered Angels Blog Week
• Tattered Angels products:
– glimmer mist – blackberry cordial
– glimmer mist chalkboard – medallion
– glimmer glam glitter paint – blizzard
• black plastic bucket – 9 inch
• clear gloss spray paint
• newspaper strips / paper mache glue mixture
• 1 large black & 2 tiny white pom poms
• 3 black pipe cleaners
• double sided tape
• glue gun
step 1 – using a store bought, or home mixed paper mache glue, attach newspaper strips to the cauldron, randomly filling in the sides and bottom. let dry overnight.
step 2 – spray blackberry cordial glimmer mist onto adhered newspaper until desired color is achieved. let dry.
step 3 – spray medallion glimmer mist over entire bucket, inside and out. let dry and seal with a coat of clear gloss spray paint.
step 4 – cut green scalloped ribbon in half lengthwise. lay black pleated ribbon right side down and line top and bottom with double sided tape. adhere green ribbon so that 1/8" extends beyond black ribbon. tape the top half of the custom ribbon all the way around the cauldron. *taping just the top will allow the bottom to billow out a bit.
step 5 – to finish ribbon trim, glue the fuchsia polka-dot ribbon down the center line of the pleat.
step 6 – take remaining polka-dot ribbon and wrap around handle with double stick tape applied to the underside of the handle. knot at beginning and end.
step 7 – for spider, hold black pom pom up to the opened bottle of glam glitter paint and invert. repeat several times until glitter is covering 3/4 of spider body. let dry.
step 8 – twist the center of 3 piper cleaners so they become one unit, then hot glue center to bottom of black pom pom. next, glue spider to rim of bucket and bend pipe cleaners to look like legs. hot glue each bend of the leg onto the bucket to hold in place. glue tiny white pom poms onto spider body as eyes.
step 9 – fill bucket with your favorite halloween candy and display!
