Throwing a spooky party this Halloween?
I’ve got your covered!
With Halloween just around the corner I couldn’t resist trying my hand at a little spooky party decorating. These painted wine glasses and bowls are super easy and fun to make.
Last month went along to a craft night hosted by Reeves in Manchester, and among other arty bits I was lucky enough to take home a goodie bag full of amazing paints, brushes and bits to get crafting with.
So when Reeves got back in touch recently and asked me to create a Halloween inspired make, I jumped at the chance to whip out my new paints and brushes and get crafting.
I used my Reeves black acrylic paint and a thin paint brush for the spiders web bowl, starting with a small circle on the base of my bowl and working out in equal lines all the way around. I added in small bends in the corners of the lines to mimic real cob webs and then set it aside to dry.
I carried on with the spider theme on my first wine glass, starting with a web on the base and adding a little spider friend on the cup. I turned my glass upside down as I worked to keep it a little more secure and to give me a better view of what I was painting.
Although acrylic paint won’t survive heavy washing on glass ware, these paints are great for a quick and fun DIY like this. I mixed it up with the red and white paints on my second wine glass creating a vampire themed look. I love how creative everyone is at Halloween, from dressing up to going all out on the decorations, it’s the only time of year where anything goes and its all about having fun. These glasses are a great place to start if you are hosting your own spooky party, they are sure to get your guests talking.
