2 Hours

As we get closer to The Day, I become like a kid who keeps asking “Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” – hahaha. 😀 Well, you all know me – I enjoy doing this and that, but there is one time of the year where I really have great fun working on my projects. You know what I am talking about, don’t you? Of course you do! Halloween! Yeessss!!!! Today is the day I start posting about Halloween. And oh boy – do

Ok, I am again yapping off-topic, so let’s get on with making our potted hand Halloween prop, shall we?

I started my project by aging my urn. As I wanted my urn to look like an old rusty iron urn, I first painted it with 2 coats of iron paint. I let the paint dry for about an hour.

Once the paint dried, I put my plastic gloves on and poured some rust activator into a small spray bottle. Then I sprayed my urn all over and waited. Although within 30 minutes it had a good amount of rust, I let it do its thing overnight.

Next day, I picked a flower foam from my stash and started shaping it so it would fit into my old rusty iron urn.

Once I was done with the foam placement, I moved on to the next step which was hot gluing the moss and critters on it.

After adding the moss and the critters, I placed the creepy hand in the middle and with that my project was done.
