My husband probably thinks I have completely lost my mind. Mua haaa (ok that is my evil serial killer laugh). I have been working on a project for my fireplace in my kitchen. Something EASY, FUN, and FAST for Halloween!
Halloween bloody weapon garland!
I hope your not thinking I am some sort of sicko. Remember I'm decorating for TEENAGERS now - more GORE less cute. Just in case your dying (get it, dying - lol I kill me! ) to make one for yourself I thought I would show a quick tutorial:
poster board (although I think I may cut out a set in think board so I can use them year after year)
Paints- Blood red, black and grey
weapons shapes - I just downloaded pics from google images = easy cheesy
string or twine
1- take your weapons cutouts and well, cut them out! them trace them onto your poster board!
2-Cut the shapes out of the poster board!
3- paint the weapons a basic black and grey. Grey is for the blade, black for the handle!
4- using a tissue "bloody" (with the red paint) your weapons. Have fun with it - Kids would love doing this! Ok, maybe not small children but my teens would!
5- lay your bloody weapons out to dry!
6- cut the length of string you need and then tape the string to the back of your weapons. Then hang up. Now your all set. I did hang mine alittle lower because I want to put a vinyl Halloween wording in the center of my mantle.
