Dollar Store - Chic 'Rat' Wall Art

My house has turned into something similar to Santa's Workshop these days. Minus his little helpers and add 140 degrees! Corie's Halloween Desert Laboratory?

I've been busy making decorations and props for my Sister's Halloween Party. This is serious business. So serious that I've been summoned for a mandatory business meeting 2000 miles away!! I'm super excited to brainstorm in person and put some plans into motion.

I'll be packing this rat trio in my luggage to be displayed on my sister's wall (if she lets me!)

What you'll need:

  • Trays from the Dollar Store

  • Black Spray Paint

  • Dollar Store Silhouette Cut-Outs

  • Green Spray Paint

  • String/Ribbon

  • Hot Glue

Spray the trays black - I used high gloss

Tape the rats down to the cardboard and spray them with several light layers of green paint (let paint dry in between layers otherwise the paper gets too wet and will curl up)

After all of the paint dries, tape/glue the green rats to the center of each tray.

Hot glue ribbons on the back of each tray for hanging.
