Halloween: the one time of year you actually want spider webs in your home. Well...maybe not real ones, but cheesecloth (with the help of spray paint) creates a web effect without the assistance of our eight-legged friends.
Spray-paint a pot or gourd with flat black. Cover the entire surface with a thick, even coat. Let dry completely.
Cover each painted project with cheesecloth and choose your finish.
For gray look: Spray-paint a thin layer of flat gray over the black; let dry. For metallic look: Spray-paint a thin layer of metallic gold over the gray; let dry.
Carefully remove the cheesecloth and let the project dry completely.
