  3. Put some black paint in the bowl, then paint inside the cat stencil. It should take 2-3 coats. Let the paint dry between each layer, and overnight to dry completely.
  4. Remove the stencil.
  5. Add whiskers and an eye with the white chalk pen.
  6. Cover painted areas with acrylic sealer.

Jack-o-Lantern Directions

  1. Place painter’s tape on the base of the wine bottle neck, create two big triangles for eyes, a smaller triangle for the nose, and the teeth and mouth shape. (It’s helpful to cut up the pieces of tape to make the angles easier.)
  2. Put orange paint in bowl. Use the large brush to paint over the tape and around the bottle, except for the top. Paint 2-3 coats. Let the paint dry between each layer.
  3. Put green paint in a bowl, and use the smaller brush to paint above the painter’s tape. Add 2-3 coats. Let it dry between each layer.

Chalkboard Spiderweb Directions
