Easy Dollar Store Plastic Plate Makeover for Halloween Goodies.
One simply cannot have too many serving trays at a Halloween feast to compliment the delightfully creepy fare one presents to their frightful visitors...
You wouldn't just throw bat wings or zombie brains on a floral vintage plate and call it a fright? Would you!
Anywho, I happened upon this transparent black plastic skull head serving tray and knew right away what it's potential was.
So I took it home and painted it black
It looked nice just black too
But I took it further anyway and dry brushed it with green metallic craft paint which added a kind of polished metal worn factor to it.
I thought it looked pretty authentic and far more sinister than the original plastic transparent plate, which by the way there is nothing wrong with the plastic plate, I love that the dollar store offers items that one can purchase and use as is at such a great price!
So there you have it an easy peasy Halloween serving tray makeover that cost little and takes about 10 min's to transform, depending on how fast the black paint dries and in the end turns into something far different and terrifically terrifying.
And since I just can't seem to keep it simple, here is how mine actually turned out in the end.
Thanks for looking and remember there are only 57 days left until Halloween! Yay!
