Spooky Spider Web Boards....BOO~

I was at the Dollar Store and saw these plastic spider web candy bowls. I knew RIGHT AWAY what I could do with them, so grabbed two and got to work. This project was so easy, and it turned out so good...you'll all be rushing to the Dollar Store to do your own.
Started with a sanded board I had in my stash. I also did this with an old worn board, not sanded and it turned out just as cool. Halloween time, no need for perfect boards, the older and more distressed the better I think.
This is the spray paint I used. Got it at local hardware store.
Started spray painting the board. Man, I love spray paint!
Now THIS is where it gets fun. I used some white satin spray paint I had on hand, and used the outlines of the plastic bowl to create Halloween magic!
Just put it on the black board and sprayed lightly in the middle of the bowl. It didn't matter if it oversprayed a bit, because the whole bowl is a design.
This is what it looks like after I sprayed. Then just lifted it off and continued placing it on different areas of the board.
Since the little spiders were so cool, I sprayed them too.
Here is a picture of the spider after spraying it on the board. There's no rhyme or reason to where you place the plastic board to spray, just lay out how you like. And low and behold...............
HALLOWEEN MAGIC!!! Isn't it the coolest! And could NOT have been any cheaper or easier. I think I'll take orange spray paint and maybe add some words on there like BOO or SPOOKY or something. Get to the Dollar store before these $1 bowls are gone! How Fun!
Added this photo after putting lettering on it. Used a vinyl stencil and spray painted orange.

    Would this work if you used artists canvas boards as well?

    1)Can you name the dollar store ? Different store chains carry diff items 😉
    2) Do you think this would work on a large mirror ?

    I just have to comment on this.

    Well Done....Especially for picking up those bowls at the Dollar Store. I Just got one of my daily emails, from Yummly, showing Halloween 'Finds'. They have THESE bowls, through Amazon, listed at $13.99 for four bowls. Huhhhh???

    So.....WELL DONE, Lisa! Great Bargain! And the project is Really cute, too!
