Need a HAND with some DIY Halloween decor? 😉 You’ve come to the right place! If you know me, you know that Halloween starts in September in my house. We have so many fun Halloween parties planned so I wanted to create a little Halloween Decor for my mantel. This project is super easy and fun to make with just a few layers of paint and some craft vinyl!

Let’s get started!
DIY Halloween Decor
What you will need:
- Small White Craft Pumpkin
- Resin Skeleton Hand
- DecoArt Metallic Lustre in desired colors (I used Silver Spark and Copper Kettle)
- DecoArt AmericanaDECOR Metallics in desired colors (I used Pearl and Silver)
- DecoArt AmericanaDECOR Satin Enamels in Classic Black
- Sizzix Big Shot
- Sizzix Bigz Skull Die
- Paint Brushes
- Cloth Rag
Starting with the Metallics in Pearl, I applied one coat of paint and let dry. Then with a clean cloth, rubbed the Silver Spark Metallic Lustre on the pumpkin.
Once dry. I dry rubbed a little of the Black Satin Enamel in the crevices of the pumpkin with a cloth.
Next, I added a little of Copper Kettle.
While the pumpkin was drying, I rubbed a little but of black paint on the resin skeleton hand with a paint brush and rag.
I wanted to add a little more detail, so I die cut a vinyl skull using my Sizzix Big Shot and Bigz Skull die. Die cutting vinyl is a cinch with the Sizzix Big Shot. Simply create a “Sizzix Sandwich” and pass it through the Big Shot. The sandwich is as follows: Cutting Pad, Bigz Die, Vinyl and a second Cutting Pad. You can see a more detailed tutorial HERE.
And that’s it! DIY Halloween Decor perfect for your Halloween Mantel!
What will you make this Halloween season? I’d love to hear from you!
