Grapevine Birdcage: Creepy for Halloween10:56 AM
I know it's a little early, but my son has been really into Halloween lately, kind of his first awareness since he's only 2 1/2. I don't think he knows what the holiday will actually be, but whenever he sees any Halloween stuff in stores he yells and points.
So I pulled out my few Halloween decorations early.
I had made this birdcage out of grapevines in order to make the tutorial earlier this spring. It was white, and I didn't have a use for it, but thought it would be fun to change it to creepy rather than cute.
So I spray painted my cage green, but it looked too cute and perfect sparkling green, so I took black spray paint and just did little puffs to darken it up unevenly.
I think it might be best to just leave the raw, brown, stringy grapevine to look like wood, rather than painted.
If I was making it right now, I'd leave the cage unpainted for Halloween I think. More like a witch's pet or something.
