Make it clever or make it spooky, your Halloween fairy garden will be a conversation piece! Transform an ordinary black cauldron into a metallic version and add a few Halloween fairy pieces to complete the look.  

  1.  Over a drop cloth, spray on the 2X Ultra Cover Paint + Primer in Flat Black, following the directions on the can. Let it dry for at least 30 minutes. 
  2. Spray paint Stops Rust Metallic Black over the primed cauldrons until completely covered. Follow the directions on the can for best results. 
  3. For larger fairy garden pieces, use 2X Ultra Cover in Gloss Real Orange and for smaller pieces, use Testors' enamel paints and a small brush. 
  4. Let all paint dry for approximately one hour before use in the garden. 
  5. While paint dries, add craft foam pieces to the larger cauldron to help prop the smaller one and drill a hole in the smaller cauldron.
  6. Connect the two cauldrons with a wooden dowel. 
  7. Fill both cauldrons with dirt, Spanish moss and plants as you'd like. 
  8. Once paint is dry, arrange fairy pieces in the cauldrons and decorate with Halloween ribbon and a glue gun.

Tip: For best results, make sure plastic is fully primed with 2X Ultra Cover Paint + Primer before Stops Rust is added.
