The Halloween party is at your house this year and you’ll need extra fun decorations! Start things off by serving treats on our easy spider web Halloween plate.
A round clear glass plate, rubbing alcohol, opaque gloss enamel for a permanent finish, and two paint brushes are all you need to make this cute DIY.
For safety reasons, paint the bottom side of the plate—you don’t want any food to touch or stain the painted surface.
If you’re not confident in your ability to paint a spider web, use images found online for inspiration.
Paint the large crisscross pattern of the web first, using opaque white gloss enamel. Work from the center out to paint the spiral lines; allow two to four hours to dry.
Once dry, paint the entire backside of the plate black with even strokes for a smooth effect. Allow four days to dry, bake in the oven, then cool.
Want to complete this project faster? Use white acrylic paint and black spray paint instead. Just remember, your work of art will be non-permanent and must be hand washed.
