Use a combination of Mod Podge and FolkArt Extreme Glitter to create Halloween place card holders that are spook-tacular for your Halloween party.
- Small clay pots, 5
- Wooden bats, 5
- Small dowel rod, at least 3' long
- Mod Podge Satin
- FolkArt Acrylic Paint – Lilac Love, Pure Black
- FolkArt Extreme Glitter - Black
- Scrapbook paper,2 sheets – the Halloween pattern of your choice
- Halloween embellishments – I used Spare Parts by The Paper Studio
- Silver paint pen, ultra fine tip
- Ribbon, 3 feet of coordinating
- Hot glue gun
- Styrofoam pieces, 5 (to hold dowels in the pots)
- Tracing paper
- Use your tracing paper to create a pot template. Roll the pot along with the pencil, tracing the shape it makes. You may have to do a little adjusting, but keep going until you have the correct shape.
- Use this template to cut the pot shape out of your sheets of scrapbook paper. Set the paper aside.
- Use your scissors to cut the dowel rod (you can use scissors with thin dowel rods only) into equal sizes, about 5" to 6" high.
- Paint the small clay pots and the dowel rods with Lilac Love inside and out. Paint the wood bat shapes with Pure Black. Allow to dry.
- Paint the wooden bats with Black Extreme Glitter. Paint several coats for a more glittery effect. Set aside to dry.
- Use your Mod Podge to adhere the papers to the bottoms of the clay pots. Cover the edges well. Allow to dry for 15 – 20 minutes then seal the entire pot with two coats of Mod Podge, allowing to dry between coats.
- Hot glue the ribbon around the edge of the pots, the embellishments onto the front of the pots and the bats to the dowel rods.
- Use the silver paint pen to add accents to your bats and to write your guests’ names as shown in the photo.
- Put a piece of Styrofoam in each pot, stick the dowel rod in and allow to dry for 24 hours before using or filling with candy.
