In between working in the yard and watching my grandkids I've been playing around making some Halloween decorations for my home. I've been wanting to make a spooky spice cabinet... and tonight I started working on it. I picked up this shadow box this past summer and pulled out all the decorations that were inside...Here it is with a new paint job. The antique gold/yellow is so bright in this photo, but in person it looks like its rusty! A perfect beginning for my spooky spice cabinet~I took three small jars and added some skulls to the lids using e6000 glue. The skulls were once plastic rings, I just cut the ring parts off and glued them in place.Once the glue had set up a little bit...I spray painted them with some textured spray paint. I think it made the lids look like rusty metal.I added some black paint to age them up a bit and added some red rhinestone eyes to the skulls. I also dripped some black paint down the sides of the jars. I hear witches are a messy-lot~ Now I just need to fill them with some fun spooky stuff and add some labels.
The cabinet is off to a good start~
