"A simple embellished Halloween canvas makes a great addition to your spooky decor. A cheap dollar store canvas can be easily transformed into a fabulous 3D original work of art. So check your stash for little 3D embellishments like plastic spider rings or skeletons that will make your scene come to life. You can make this last-minute Halloween decoration in about an hour. This would be a great family project to get the kids involved in. The hardest part is waiting for the glue to dry!"

Primary TechniqueGeneral Crafts


Materials List

  • Dew Drop Round Gems (The Robin's Nest) & Tear Drops
  • Liquid adhesive
  • Canvas 12x12' Halloween embellishments
  • Glitter glue / white gel pen


  1. Select areas on your canvas to highlight. Place Dew Drops on the canvas by coordinating with the color of the canvas.

  2. Next, apply small dots of liquid adhesive on the windows and apply yellow Dew Drops to the wet glue.

  3. Apply sticker embellishments to a scrap of paper and carefully fussy cut the images. This allows you to be able to try different placements before you commit to attaching them. When you are satisfied with the arrangement, adhere them to the canvas. (This is a helpful tip especially if you are working with young children)

  4. Add mini yellow Dew Drops to the jack-o-lantern's face and then add black Dew Drops to create the bodies of the bats.

  5. Use a white gel pen to sketch little cobweb details onto the canvas. Apply glitter glue to highlight parts of the scene like the full moon or the jack-o-lanterns.
