Repurposed Canvas Art For Halloween
My twin sister and I are throwing Halloween a party this year. We've been collecting and gathering fun decor items to spookify the rooms. However, we needed something spooky above the fireplace - A collection of spooky photos? A painting? What?
But where to find something not too expensive? Enter this art canvas my sister was no longer using - just plain, simple birds on a wire. She gave it to me to repurpose some time ago and it's been sitting in my art studio waiting for its chance to be used again.
I pulled up images of crows on Google and got to work, sketching out the crow shapes over the existing birds with a piece of charcoal then filling in with acrylic paint:
A short time later, I had this:
Then a quick styling of the mantel and poof! Instant spookiness!
It was quick and easy to do and a good way to reuse an old canvas piece of art (if you don't have one already, you can find them at the thrift store for a few dollars).
Come back Monday to see the full Halloween party reveal!
