 Step 2: Paint the outside skin of your man eating   plant (we stuck with lime green, purple and black).  Paint the inside of the mouth red.

  • Coordinate the paint colors with the color of flower you will be using.  Example, The lime green painted Styrofoam really popped off of the red or brown flowers.  The black painted Styrofoam complimented the white flowers.
  • Paint the tips of the flowers with contrasting paint color to add more visual interest.
  • Outline the vampire teeth with glow-in-the-dark paint.
