Happy (almost) Halloween! Can you believe how close we’re getting to the big night? Although we’re excited about the candy, we know the holiday is about much more than sweet treats. Halloween is a time of magic, wonder, and creative expression. With Dixie Belle Paint products, you can take your Halloween crafting to a whole new level. From colorful homemade costumes to spooky yard decorations and other custom-created decor, this blog will explore how you can use Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paints and their entire line of products to create spookily unique Halloween artwork.
Wicked Witch Hat
To create a truly bewitching look, start with a simple black witch hat. You can use one from an old costume, or purchase a pack off of Amazon and host a hat decorating party! Dixie Belle is always the nice witch, so we’re going to give this hat a glam makeover. Use Dixie Belle’s Chalk Mineral Paint in Soft Pink to add a glossy sheen to your hat. Don’t forget to accent it with some glamorous Moonshine Metallics in Silver Bullet. Now, you’re ready to set out on the town on Halloween night as the nicest witch there is.
Haunted Outdoor Yard Signs
Create eerie signs for your yard using reclaimed wood or old pallets lying around. Paint them with Dixie Belle’s Fluff as the base, then distress them for a weathered look. Use Dixie Belle’s Terra Clay in spooky colors like Pistachio and Marigold for ominous lettering. Write a spooky message or name on a tombstone. One of our talented creators, Tyler with Rehab2Fab, had the creative idea of recreating the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus in her front yard! Check out her video for a more in-depth look here.
Witch’s Brew Tray
Craft a serving tray for your Halloween party. Paint a wooden, metal, or even acrylic tray with Dixie Belle’s Chalk Mineral Paint in the pitch-black night color Caviar. Better yet, try Amythyst for a witchy touch. Use Dixie Belle’s Artist Brushes to create the fine line of a venomous spider’s web. Freehand painting is not your strong suit? You can add an eerily perfect design by using Dixie Belle Paint’s Happy Halloween Mylar Stencils from their Belle’s and Whistles Line. Use a spooky color like Honky Tonk Red for a pop of color sure to scare your hungry guests. The tray below is a piece done by the ever-so-talented JPo from The Purple Poise.
