Today, I am sharing crafting with Styrofoam and a Halloween craft.

Of course, a little Rit dye came into play on this craft project.

Thank you, Make it crafts for the goodies.

I was sent all kinds of fun goodies, like colored mesh, burlap, and lots of Styrofoam.

I never have crafted with Styrofoam but glad I was given the opportunity.

Supplies:

Black Rit dye

Stencils

craft paint of your choice

FIRST:

Take your styrofoam  board outside

My first thoughts were to do something like subway art on my board.

Then, I thought nawww…keep it simple the first time around.

The board only needed one good coat of Black rit dye

Straight up,no mixing with water

and certainly no heating up like you would to paint on natural wood.

I used a regular paint brush.

It penetrated into the foam just perfectly.

I was thrilled to see that.

It almost looks like a chalk board.

Pretty soon it’s going to get a little scary around here…

I LOVE HALLOWEEN!

I sure wish my boys appreciated it and loved it like they did when they were little.

However, they could care less,

but they still want me to buy candy.

Regardless, I still plan on spooking it up around here

and this was the first spooktacular project I came up with for the Season!

One last touch this wicked witch needed was some burlap and mesh flowers.

I figured while my black rit dye was out I would dye the burlap.

You saw how pretty dyed burlap can be. 

I cut some circles and soaked them in black rit dye {in the sink} for about 10 minutes.

Let them dry and simply hot glued three together, fold them in half and hot glued it shut.

Made a funky little black flower.

Did the same with the purple mesh.

Boy am I going to have fun with all the goodies, of burlap and colored mesh I received. Purple, green, white, orange. I sure love all the fun colors they have.

    Ha! I’m cracking up at your boys not caring about the decorations but still wanting the candy…been there! Amazing what the dye did on the styrofoam. My first thought was that it would sink in but it didn’t…good job and great directions. You are truly spooktacular!

    Cute, cute!! I gave away most of my Halloween decor when I moved. Just didn’t seem like I would need or want it. I do have a few little things and I put lights out on the balcony.

    Great job!

    Awesome post! Styrofoam crafts are indeed awesome. These are great for home decorations. This Styrofoam craft is pretty interesting. I love the colors used and the design is beautiful, so perfect for this Halloween.  Last year my family made Styrofoam Christmas decors and it was perfect and fun. I would love to try another craft so soon. These ideas are absolutely so brilliant.
