This month, I am pairing with DecoArt and using their Americana multi-surface satin paint, which is pretty awesome because you can paint on pretty much anything, to make some fun Halloween party decor! I thought some hand lettered Halloween plates would be a fun!
(this post contains affiliate links) While these aren’t food safe (here are some Halloween plates that are), they are a fun way to add a spooky touch!
I started with some inexpensive party plates from the craft store, and grabbed a few of Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in some Halloween-ish colors( Paprika, Black Tie, Yellow Gold). I love adding touches like this to a Halloween party. They are fun and inexpensive, and this could even be a fun party project for guests!
I started by writing my hand lettering on with a permanent marker. You can also do it in pencil first, or trace it on with a graphite paper, and then going over it if hand lettering isn’t your jam.
After adding the hand lettering, I went over some of the letters with black tie or paprika paint to emphasize them.
After they dried,I worked inside out, and I painted the edges of my hand lettered Halloween plates, and highlighted any raised parts.
I also used the Yellow gold to add an accent to the edges.
I tried to find Halloween quotes that weren’t just the same old, same old trick or treat, or boo sayings.
Any Hocus Pocus fans out there?
I put mine on my mantel with a few pumpkins from the grocery store.
For years, our grocery store had plain, orange pumpkins.This year, we had some cute small ones, and some stripey ones too, as well as a collection of interesting gourds. They are finally moving up in the world a bit, and getting with the times!
