Hey, Halloweenies! Did you see the first Garden Edging Turned Mini Halloween Tombstone project? I'm back with a second Halloween project for that wooden garden edging I found at a garage sale over a year ago.
MINI HALLOWEEN TOMBSTONE
- vintage wooden garden edging shaped like tombstone
- needle nose pliers with wire cutter
- Norton Sanding Bug from Rockler Woodworking
- DecoArt Frame Stencil called "Trick or Treat"
- DecoArt Stencil Paint in "shimmering silver"
- DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint in "soft black"
- 1" foam brush from Rockler
- PK Glitz glitter in "crystal"
- Sand blasting sand
- Tea light candle
STEP 1: Cut apart the wires connecting the garden edging using a wire cutter.
I used the one built into my needle nose pliers.
STEP 2: Distress the piece using the Norton Sanding Bug from Rockler.
|STEP 3: Place the "Trick or Treat" frame stencil from DecoArt on the wood.|
Use the Rockler foam brush to dob on the DecoArt shimmering silver paint.
|STEP 4: While the paint is still wet, apply the PK Glitz "crystal" glitter.|
|STEP 5: Place the stencil and paint the cat figure by dobbing it with the foam brush and soft black acrylic paint.|
|STEP 6: Let it dry.|
|STEP 7: Fill the bottom of a jar with black sand blasting material. Place the tombstone.|
Add a tealight candle. Light the candle.
Wouldn't this be great by the front door to welcome your trick or treaters?
What do you do to welcome
