Hiya!!! This is Tracy from At Home with Sweet T!!! I’m so thrilled to be here at See Vanessa Craft to share this easy Halloween Rug with you. I love Halloween, it’s mostly about the candy for me just like the kids. This Halloween rug is the perfect way to greet your Trick-or-Treaters while you send them away with loads of candy!
I started with a rug I picked up for about $6 at Ikea. Any plain rug will work. When I saw the orange stripes I immediately thought Halloween!!! I’m terrible about getting a before picture because I get so excited about getting started. You can probably guess what the first step is.
Use a cutting machine to make a spider or a spider stencil. I used my Cricut to cut this spider out of vinyl. Because the top of the rug is the ends of fibers it is hard to get anything to stick to it. For that reason I used the stencil brush and pounced the black paint on.
After you have a painted spider in the middle of the rug you can create the web. I just used painter’s tape. To form the web start by connecting the each leg to the next with the appropriate size piece of tape. Next apply tape from the point from the ring you just created out to the edge of the rug. Then create additional rings going outward.
Paint the web the same way with pouncing the black paint.
Remove the tape when dry. Now you have a fun but yet creepy Halloween Decoration.
Add some candy and you are ready to greet those little creatures of Halloween Night. Maybe you’ll have some cute trick or treaters like this cute little bee or shark. Thanks so much Vanessa for letting me share some Halloween goodness here! I’d love for you all to visit me – At Home with Sweet T Facebook Pinterest Instagram Twitter
