Make a Swarming Spider Tablecloth
1) Wash a dropcloth (mine is 6′ x 9′) Get Dropcloth Here
2) Spread it on your table
(put a brown paper grocery bag under each section as you stencil to protect your table)
3) Simply stick the self-adhesive spider stencil onto the drop cloth – mine is sold out but you can get a similar spider stencil here
4) I used a small paint brush and applied this black craft paint in a pouncing motion
5) Remove stencil and repeat, and repeat, and repeat … until you have a swarm!
Tip: rinse stencil after every 30-40 spiders and dry on old dish cloth (not paper towel – too much lint)
I couldn’t stop there.
I was married on Friday the 13th so I consider it a lucky number (most days anyway)!
A couple of self-adhesive stencils and red glass paint made it simple to whip up these wine glasses.
