Like I said in my Post Tuesday, I am ready for Halloween… but my Front Porch was not!
My first project was re-working those Old Porch Chairs. Today I decided to re-work a couple of old and tired Planters that used to live on my Front Porch but have been living neglected on my Side Yard.
See what I mean? Sad, faded and ugly.
Those chairs turned Halloween Master Pieces got me thinking… I could Halloweenify these too!!!
My first thought was to just Spray Paint them (shocking!). I went with Rust-Oleum’s Hammered Metal Spray Paint in Black.
Better… but… not enough for me. I decided to Mummify it! Off to Home Depot I went for some Cheesecloth (which of course I didn’t get enough of so I grabbed some more from Hobby Lobby when I was there today).
I just wrapped it around my planters and adhered it in spots with some leftover Batman Duct Tape. I then used some Wood Ovals from Hobby Lobby to make the eyes and affixed them with Hot Glue and Voila! Mummy Planters!
As you can see from this last picture, I am adding some branches to the planter. I also spray painted those with the Hammered Metal Paint. It needs more there too…. for another day I suppose.
See You Soon….
