An old TV that you don’t care aboutbut it has to be able to turn on. You need the “snow” that appears on the screen to get the full effect.
paper or newspaper
White spray primer
Orange spray paint
Matte sealer spray
Paint it with acrylic craft paint
Use a Sharpie permanent marker
Use decoupageMod Podge and black paper
Electrical tape or black duct tape
I covered the screen with plain paper using that blue painter’s tape. Don’t want any paint on the screen, but you could easily remove it with vinegar or window cleaner if need be.
Then I used a white primer to spray the entire television. I let that dry for about 20 minutes.
Then came the orange spray paint. So funny, after I finished painting it my daughter happened to walk outside and said “What the? What are you doing to that TV Ma?” Ha ha!
While the orange paint was drying, I found a fun face stencil and put it in Adobe Illustrator (I just have the trial version) to change the shape a bit. Then I used a cutting machine to cut the stencil from black vinyl.
I sprayed a coat of matte sealer over the orange also.
Then simply stick the vinyl face to the TV screen and turn it on! Turn the volume down all the way and do not connect the TV to cable or satellite, you just want a snowy screen.
