Introduction: Halloween Wall Decor, Hand Painted.
Hand painted wooden squares for a cute wall decoration.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
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!
