Party Tub

For party fun on Halloween night, stencil a face on a painted tub and use the container for cold beverages.

What You Need:

  • Pencil
  • Tracing paper
  • Scissors
  • Stencil paper
  • Crafts knife
  • Orange enamel spray paint
  • 20-inch-diameter galvanized metal tub
  • Adhesive tape
  • Acrylic paint (black)
  • Stencil brush
