MATERIALS

  • Quest Powder Canister
  • Scissors
  • Black Construction Paper
  • Ruler
  • Scotch Tape (double sided preferred)
  • Pencil or Chalk
  • Electric Candle

DIRECTIONS FOR ASSEMBLY

  1. Rinse the inside of the canister and lid thoroughly to remove any excess powder. Powder will prevent the tape from adhering properly
  2. Peel the label until the back half of the canister is exposed
  3. Cut off the loose label ends with scissors and set the canister to the side
  4. On a piece of black construction paper, take a ruler and measure out a box to draw your main design in. Draw your box in either pencil or chalk for visibility.
    1. This can be any size you like. I chose to draw a box the height of the canister and fill it to the edges.
  5. In the free space around your box, add extra decoration, like bats
  6. Take your scissors and cut out your designs. Dispose of excess paper.
    1. For circular designs, like a β€œQ”, lightly fold the paper in half and make an incision into the center. Work your scissors into the incision point and gently cut out the inner circle.
  7. Lay out your main design on your work surface, and gently place a long strip of double-sided scotch tape across it
    1. Large designs might require multiple pieces of tape
    2. If using single-sided tape, attach tape to the back of your design
  8. Bring back your canister, remove the lid, and position it with the exposed back facing you
  9. Pick up your design by the tape ends, and place it inside the canister along the wall of the exposed back.
  10. Once the double sided tape has adhered to the canister wall, feel free to readjust the spacing of your design
  11. Apply tape to the extra decorations and add them to empty spaces around your design
  12. Place an electric candle inside the canister and screw on the lid
    1. If stability is desired, feel free to hold the candle in place with tape
  13. Display your shadow box. Happy Halloween.
