Halloween Decor: black and white stripes with gold spider

Today I'm sharing how I made this gold spider with black and white stripes.

On Monday I shared my Halloween mantel, which included this spider art.  

I took a piece of wood I had in my stash and painted it white.  
Then I taped off some stripes with painters tape.

Then I painted the board with acrylic paint. 
I happened to have this chalk paint (bought on clearance from Walmart a few weeks ago)
 in my drawer so I used it.  
I really like how smoothly it went on and it dried super quick too.

After the paint dried, I took off the tape and gave the entire board a quick 
sanding with my little mouse sander.

To make the gold spider and web, I found an image in the Silhouette store 
I liked and downloaded it. 
PS:  All of the Halloween images are on sale right now.
(I'm not an affiliate, just passing on a good deal!)

I cut the image out of gold foil paper from the Jen Hadfield Home-Made line.
(that is an Amazon affiliate link)

Then I simpley glued the spider onto the board.

Easy peasy Halloween project!!
