It’s easy to decorate when you use what you have. I created this Quick Easy Halloween Glam Sconce in about 15 minutes!
A bit ago, I was asked by Answers.com to create something for their Decorating Answers section of their site. They wanted me to make over something second hand. Well……..that is my Craft Love Language! After looking through my craft room closet where I keep all my trash that’s waiting to become treasures, my eye fixed on this little sconce.
After looking through my craft room closet where I keep all my trash that’s waiting to become treasures, my eye fixed on this little sconce. I picked this up at a yard sale a while ago. I hadn’t planned on keeping it gold…….even though gold is coming back……. Which……can I just say, I’m not ready for the gold. I’m still on silvers.
Quick and Easy Halloween Glam
While looking this over, I thought it would be cute with one of the cute little gourds sitting on top. And then it hit me! Why not make it more for Halloween……..with glitter.
This was one of the quickest makeovers ever!
- Paintable item
- Round foam paint dauber
- Black acrylic paint
- Black glitter
- Clean your item so it’s free of any dust or grease.
- Using your round dauber, wet the end with black paint and daub where you want all the dots to be.
- While the paint is wet, sprinkle black glitter over the dot.
- Repeat and allow to dry.
Because my item was small, I was able to paint all my dots on at once, then sprinkle the glitter over all of it at once.
If you don’t have a sconce, use any item you want to upcycle. Get creative! You can even use different colors.
So easy! And so inexpensive to create Quick Easy Halloween Glam!
