Making a Halloween Toothbrush Spray Painting

Spray paint can be expensive. When you have something simple to do with your kid and you need spray paint but you can't afford one, use a clean old toothbrush. Today, I'm teaching Halloween arts using the effect of stencils and a toothbrush.



  • Halloween pattern cut outs/stencil
  • clean old toothbrush
  • water
  • water colors
  • black art paper as the base


  1. Lay your stencil or cutouts over the black paper. I started with the moon and the witch. Use the open part where you cut the moon. Place the witch in the center.
  2. Dip the brush into the water, remove excess liquid, then into the white water color.
  3. Rub your thumb against the brush to spread/sprinkle paint over the stencil. Don't forget to cover the other parts of the paper.
  4. Carefully remove the stencil and it should look like this.
  5. Cover your first work (the moon). Add all the other figures, trees, bats, etc. Then sprinkle a combination and/or layers of color. I used white, blue, violet, and yellow (as the final layer). Color combinations add effect so it is important to think which ones go well together.
  6. Remove the figures and let dry for a short while.
