Halloween Inspired Serving Tray

Posted by DecoArt on Sep 26th 2017

Halloween is just around the corner and I really wanted to get started on some fun projects.  Every year I have a fun Halloween party for my family and friends.  I go all out with my party decor so I thought creating a fun Halloween Inspired Serving Tray would be a great idea for the table setting!

Let’s get started with this quick and cool tutorial!


Items Needed:

  • Foam Brushes
  • Adhesive Black Rhinestones
  • Foam Skull Head


Gather your supplies.

I was able to find the perfect colors in the Americana Multi-Surface Satin Acrylics.

I started off by painting three coats of the Gold paint.  Allowing each coat to dry completely.

Then I went over the head with the champagne paint color and a sponge brush (lightly).

Finally I went over the whole head with the chocolate paint.  I love that you can still see the other colors showing through the chocolate paint.  I did go a little heavier in spots like the eye, nose and teeth area.

Now the fun part, adding our diamonds!! I wanted to add a little more sparkle to this project.  I was VERY excited when I found the adhesive diamonds.  They went on super simple.

This looks great, right?!  I can't wait to have my party this year, this will look perfect on the table.  Add some cookies, cupcakes or even candies (like I did) and you're all set!
