In 2012 We decided to have a Vampire Themed Halloween Party. So I needed some decorations to make our place feel more like a Haunted Castle. I knew I wanted to make a fake MACE prop to hang above the mantle, but wasn't sure how to do it.
Then at a local pharmacy chain store, I saw a toy ball with spikes and I knew I could attempt it with just whatever I had laying around the house.
Here's what you'll need (Almost everything but the toy ball I found at home, but most of these items can be found at any local hardware store cheap)
A "spiked" toy ball
Metallic or Silver Spray paint
Piece of an old broom handle or 3" thick wooden dowel
Short length of Old Rusty Chain
Wood stain or black/brown craft paint
Super Glue or other similar adhesive
Swivel chain from an old toy
Step 1: Step One
To make this go a lot quicker, I spray painted the "spiked" toy ball first, giving it plenty of time to dry. I propped it up before spray painting (I just used the spray paint cap to prop it up). You will definitely want to cover your work surface with newspaper, I use aluminum foil so that the paint doesn't stick to my project.
