Spice Rack Turned Halloween Prop

By Corie @DesignDNAblog
I recently obtained an old spice rack from my Sister-in-law who thought I might be interested in turning it into a Halloween prop.  Challenge accepted!

Supplies: Expandable foam, acrylic paint, body parts from the Dollar Tree and rope.
Step 1: I removed the test tubes and began to play with the spray foam.  Make sure you read the warnings, it is very flammable and hazardous to your skin!  The foam is pretty messy and has a mind of its own but for this project it worked out perfect - the sloppier the better.

Great Stuff (expanding foam)

Step 3:  I wanted the foam to have a "swampy" appearance.  I mixed different shades of green and brown acrylic paint together and slathered on the filth.

Step 4:  I painted the lids a similar mud color, emptied most of the spices and added water to the tubes .  The rod iron handle was wrapped with rope and Voila!
