Specialty spray paint on a skeleton cat and pumpkin yard décor create a creepy vibe for your Halloween celebration. 

  1. Make sure your Halloween props are clean and dry.

  2. Tape off any areas of your props you don’t want to paint.

  3. Working outdoors and over a drop cloth, apply Rust-Oleum® Stops Rust® Textured Spray Paint to the cat skeleton, following the directions on the can.

  4. Let paint dry for at least 1 hour.

  5. While cat is drying, spray the textured metallic paint on the pumpkins, following the directions on the can.

  6. Let paint dry for at least 1 hour. 

    1. To paint “BOO” letters with a glow-in-the-dark effect, first paint them white using Stops Rust Protective Enamel Spray Paint. After 20 minutes of dry time, apply Rust-Oleum® Glow in the Dark spray paint. Dry for 1 hour and use a hot glue gun to attach them to the pumpkins. Let the letters charge in the light for several hours so they will glow in the dark.
