Introduction: Halloween Wall Decor, Hand Painted.

Picture of Halloween Wall Decor, Hand Painted.

Hand painted wooden squares for a cute wall decoration.

Step 1: Paint Squares

First I painted all 4 wooden squares(from craft store $1.00 each) their background color. Waited an hour and did a second coat. I hand traced the faces then painted them. Some places needed second coats.

Step 2: Paint Faces

Frankenstein is done! While second black coat for spider is drying, I'm painting the faces on the ghost and pumpkin. I put my paint in containers with lids so I could cover it between coats. 

Step 3: Finish Spider

All 4 faces painted and drying. Just have to finish the spider by adding pupils, and legs. Heating up the hot glue gun for that.

Step 4: Spider

Finished the spider! Twisted pipe cleaners, the fold in half, 2 per side. 4 all together. Bend legs to look like a spider, or leave straight.  Hot glue onto back !! Add little black pupils to eyes. Let all dry well. I spent a few hours a day on these for 3 days.

Step 5: Add Ribbon to Hang

I used black ribbon with orange dots. But any ribbon would be cute! Hot glued a loop at the top and glued the ribbon all the way down the center of each square(to make it last), left an inch of ribbon between each and a little at the end. Hang on wall!

This is cute and brilliantly simple. If you got some fabric paints (or felt like doing the silkscreening thing) they'd probably make some nice t-shirt designs too.
