Step 1:

Flip the wooden pallet upside down. Cover it with the creepy black net cloth, then secure it with a gun tacker.

Step 2:

Place wooden blocks on the bottom to elevate the wooden pallet.

Step 3:

Insert the plastic hands on the net, so that you can see them on the other side of the pallet. Attach using a gun tacker.

Step 4:

Remove the blocks and flip the wooden pallet again.

Step 5:

Pour some paint into a plastic cup and add a bit of water. Mix using a paintbrush. Splatter some red paint on the wooden pallet, then make a few strokes. Don’t forget to splatter on the hands.

Step 6:

Once you are done with the red paint, pour the faux blood into the cup. Splatter and mix with the red paint on the wooden pallet. Next, pour black paint on another cup. Then write “keep out, dead inside” using a paintbrush and black paint.
