Several months ago I wanted to create wall art using recycled magazines and an old canvas. The final product didn't turn out exactly as I anticipated (I thought by gluing yarn across the canvas would give it an added dimension however, the cute little owls are now in jail) Ugh.
Instead of throwing my efforts away I thought I'd give it a second chance.
I started by mixing Mod Podge with several drops of black paint and covered the canvas with old book pages to create a smoother base.
It's not easily seen in this picture but I dripped hot glue up and down the canvas. Trying to create the look of dripping blood.
Cover the hot glue and canvas with black spray paint.
Starting from the top I dripped red paint down the canvas - the messier the better (I've found some paints are thicker then others - the runnier the better in this case so you may need to thin the paint out slightly with a few drops of water)
Repeat the step with black paint (this is quite messy so make sure you have cardboard or a drop cloth below the canvas)
Glue plastic spiders to the front of the canvas and voilà!
An inexpensive Halloween piece of art!
A little known fact ~ I'm terribly arachnophobic so I had a very hard time handling these plastic spiders...
