Spooky Halloween Tray

Hi all

Hope your crafty worlds are all running ok. I've been silly busy recently, so no posts for a while and this is the quickest post ever!
The substrate is a large box frame from Country Love Crafts . I painted the frame and base (which is separate so easy to work on) with DecoArt Black Gesso. Once dry I used the fab Andy Skinner Day of the Dead stencil and just worked through in various places with DecoArt Metallic Lustres in Espresso, Champagne gold and Copper. Plastic spiders from Poundland coated with some Decoupage Glue then covered with glitter and glued on with a 3D glue. Finally I smudged some silver Metallic Lustre around the inside and outside edges of the frame. Easy peasy and super quick!
I'm not keen on giving children lots of sweets so I just filled the tray with chocolate coins and satsumas which my daughter and I decorated with black markers to look a bit like pumkins!
Happy Halloween!!!
