Before fuzzifying my cute spider with ultrafine Flower Soft, I removed the hanging cord and painted the wooden shapes with matching acrylic paint front and back...the edges of the wood were sort of burnished, so I left them natural, which saved a little time! Once the paint was dry, I opened a bottle of Flower Soft glue and used an old brush to stroke it onto the front of one section at a time, making sure to let the Burnt Sienna thoroughly dry before moving on to the Black. To finish, I replaced the original jute and bead hanger with a cute plaid Halloween ribbon.
I took these photos outside for the natural light, but since this is not weatherproof, my project will actually be displayed indoors...I opted to leave the back side un-fuzzified for easier storage, especially since it will be hanging from a peg against the wall.
Ultrafine Flower Soft certainly boosted the creepy factor and made this Halloween spider a whole lot more fun!
