Instead of paying big bucks for a Halloween tablecloth, make this simple Zombie tablecloth. It adds a touch of spookiness to your Halloween party table. Five minutes, plus dry time, and your Halloween table has a spooktacular covering!
Hosting a Halloween party? Or perhaps you are dressing up your house for Halloween and would like something for the kitchen table, side tables (cut the plastic tablecloth), or cocktail table (again, cut to fit). This is a super easy, fairly quick Halloween decor upgrade to make your Halloween table more ghoulish and fun.
Zombie Blood Clot Tablecloth
This is a great project to do with children! Kids love using painted hands to create art. Just make certain you supervise so you don’t have paint everywhere. If possible, take this Halloween craft outside and do it on the grass. That way, any paint that ends up where it isn’t supposed to be is cut away the next time you mow the lawn.
Tips and variations for making this Zombie Blood Clot Tablecloth:
● This is super simple to make! First, choose a red color for blood. The hex color is 8A0707 for blood red if you want to have a color made.
● Allow this tablecloth to dry completely before using it.
● This is a great craft to make with your children. Just make certain your work surface is completely covered, or take the project outside!
● If you want a more “realistic”, gory coloring, duplicate the colors found in this homemade Halloween wounds post. It will table longer than 5 minutes to do, but a purple/red/black combo will definitely be ghoulish.

Zombie Blood Clot Tablecloth Materials:
● 1 White Plastic Tablecloth
● 1 True Red Acrylic Craft Paint (close to blood)
Zombie Blood Clot Tablecloth Tools:
● 1 Paintbrush
● Paper Plate
● Latex Glove
Zombie Blood Clot Tablecloth Instructions:
● Lay the tablecloth out in a well-ventilated area (outside is great) and fold it in half (you can do the whole tablecloth at once if you have a big area to lay the tablecloth).
● Pour paint onto a paper plate.
● Place your hand in a latex glove (or do this with your hand uncovered), place your hand onto the paint on the paper place, making sure you cover your palm and fingers and then press your hand along the tablecloth in different places.
● Repeat until you are satisfied with the appearance of your tablecloth.
● Wash hands.
● Take a paintbrush and dip it in red paint. Splatter it onto table cloth with a flick or a drip to make the paint look like splattered blood.
● Allow the tablecloth time to dry. Do not use a hairdryer to hasten as the plastic could melt. If you are doing this on a cloth tablecloth, you could use the hairdryer at low temp, not too close to the paint.
● Repeat for the opposite side. Once both sides of the tablecloth are dry, place it on a table. Or you can use it to hang in windows with lights behind them to make it look like zombie windows.
