Vintage Light Fixture Halloween Moon

3 Materials
Easy
A witch on her broom in front of a full moon is iconic at Halloween...and it's easier than you think to create your own version!

So, I started with this old light fixture from a home salvage store. Nothing exciting, just large, old, and in need of a bath (and a new lease on life!). A lot of thrift stores carry similar salvaged lights, too.
After cleaning it, I added a little coloration to the inside. I used very little paint- purposefully- to keep it from getting gloppy/sloppy.

Then, I added a silhouette of a flying witch on her broomstick. I found the clip art online and traced it on black card stock- and a bubble of Scotch tape to fix her to my light.
And then the big reveal...Illumination (details on the blog!)! Isn't that the coolest looking Halloween light? I just LOVE it.
Just like a spooky, scary full moon on Halloween night. And it's so much easier than you could ever imagine. Can't wait to place this in our window for the trick-or-treaters. Happy Halloween!

    I was thinking, this is beautiful, but couldn't you also hang it upside down from the ceiling in front of a window? Jan

    What kind & color was the paint that you used in the inside? I love the way the paint made it look! Also what light bulb did you use?

      Kimberly, you can find the info about paint above here. Go to the picture of her hand holding the light fixture. Right underneath the picture, click on the sentence that says " Click HERE to find out the secret to my paint job! . For the light, you could use a battery operated candle or a battery operated string of lights.
