Trick or Treat…Bats go…eek!
I have had a plain orange metal tub for years. I’m sure you all have something very similiar. I think I got it at Walmart many moons ago. We’ve used it for everything from holding our trick or treat candy to bobbing for apples. It’s a great size and it’s orange, so naturally it’s perfect for Halloween festivities. But this year, I decided it needed a little something extra…it needed a little twist.
First, I decided to use the image of a bat. I printed the image and text from the computer, having used Microsoft Word. I also used this technique with my stenciled burlap pillows. With my printouts and some contact paper, I made my own stencils. The font I chose was Cracked. It has sort of a “spooky” look to it.
I can’t wait to use this at Halloween! What a fun way to display your treats at a party and for Trick or Treat.
I’ll definitely be using this in my Halloween decor, so I’ll be back with some pictures of how I incorporate it later.
It’s fun and easy to do! Just a stencil and some paint is all it takes to go from drab to fab! Do you have any old Halloween decor that could use a little twist?
