puff paint spiders

We’re getting closer and closer to all hallows eve!  As things start to get spooky in your neck of the woods, you can do a few very easy things to get in the spirit.  If you like simple, this last minute Halloween project is for you!  It’s actually a pretty fun project to do with kids too and involves puff paint, and who doesn’t like puff paint? It really brings me back to my younger days of puff painting anything from a caboodle to my keds.

Although I did feel a bit silly buying the stuff, this project is anything but!  It’s a super easy (and dare I say darling?) way to get a little creepy decor into your home right before the scary holiday.

ONE print our spider template and lay it underneath a piece of wax paper or parchment paper.  TWO trace over the template with black puff paint, ensuring very thick, solid lines.  THREE after letting the spider dry for 24-48 hours, peel it off the parchment.

To apply to the window, warm the spider in the palms of your hands.  Once it’s warmed up a bit, breathe on it like you would when cleaning your glasses.  Then, it will stick to a clean window.  You might have to press it on just a bit. The cleaner the window and the more moist/warm the spider, the better the stick.

It’s a fun, easy little project to do if you’re looking for a simple way to show your spooky side this Halloween!
