Have you been seeing this idea of how to make a Goodwill Painting Spooky?
Of course I had to give it a try! I ventured over to our local Goodwill and found this beautiful painting for just over $6.00. I actually looked up the artist…you know, just in case I somehow hit the painting of the lifetime jackpot. 😉 You never know when something like this would instead turn into an Antique Roadshow kind of situation. 😉
Alas, it’s a print, but still very beautiful.
Being that this is a print I gave myself the go ahead to use it as I wished. Now, I’ve seen a lot of people find artwork and then they paint on ghosts. Even though it was a print I still couldn’t paint it, so I instead came up with the idea to use parchment paper as my little ghosts. I figured they’d be transparent and how cool would that look, but unfortunately it just wasn’t coming together with this particular piece of art. Then I had a lightbulb moment of using these bats that I have all over the house! I stuck on one…and then another…and then another. It was looking perfectly spooky!
This beautiful painting from Goodwill easily and quickly became a spooky scene in our living room.
