My arachnid invaded mantle
First, I needed some cute candlesticks to display. I had an old set that had been kicking around and I really didn't know what to do with them. They had a good shape to them but they were very past their prime. I gave them to my hubby to spray paint black.
I was going to distress them after they were dry, but I decided I liked the glossy black look. I had purchased the garden trellis and mixed my craft paint with a few tablespoons of water to turn it into the dye, then dropped the trellis into the mixture. I stirred it around and after it was completely covered with the black stain, I let it dry outside for a few hours. Then I hung it on my mantle, and set the spiders loose.
This was the outcome. What do you think?
