Its the best time of the and it means it Halloween. I joined other blogger in making upcycled Halloween inspired tray which we all got from out local target. I decided to transform my tray completely and of course I had a little help from the hubby. I learned a couple new things from the hubby and I ended with a beautifully haunted Halloween tray. If you are telling yourself you can’t make out little Halloween diorama, you can always go to your local craft store and purchase miniature figures to make your very own upcycled Halloween inspired tray like ours.
We began by making each little figure by hand and using sculpey hard clay, which we like to use due because it wont deform under the heat of your hand. The last thing you want is to keep leaving your finger print or nail prints all over your clay while working with it.
Once we completed all the sculpting we prime them black to make them easier to paint. My hubby used a combination of hand painting and air brushing. Its super fun to air brush and I can’t wait to use it in my other projects in the futures.
Using the tray I decided to used fake grass from my local craft store and real dirt on top of that to add another dimension. I covered the sided of the tray with tape to make sure the dirt will not fall out and make a mess all over my house.
I went ahead and then began placing my figures in the tray. However, something still seemed to be missing and I got my little miniature fence to hot glue around the tray. I was so happy with the end result and I am thinking of expanding my little Halloween village
