Thrills & Chills!

Em­brace the spooky spirit of Hal­loween to give your guests a fun DIY-style scare.

Thrift shops are full of fun ob­jects just wait­ing to be re­pur­posed for Hal­loween. Orig­i­nally light blue, this or­nate lit­tle mir­ror had de­tails that called out to be dressed up for All Hal­lows’ Eve. Find a sim­i­lar mir­ror and give it a base coat of dark gray paint. Dry brush lime green paint over the raised sur­faces to re­veal its de­tails. High­light the edges with orange paint. Se­lect a ghostly im­age, pos­si­bly in­spired by a vin­tage por­trait, and en­large it to fit your mir­ror. Trans­fer the im­age onto spe­cial ac­etate made for copy­ing. Re­move the mir­ror from its frame and cut the ac­etate to fit over the mir­ror. Place the ac­etate and mir­ror back into the frame. Add in­ter­est­ing em­bel­lish­ments such as dark brown crys­tals dan­gling from the mir­ror sides or a large mul­ti­col­ored mar­ble set into the me­tal leaves top­ping the mir­ror.
