I'm Going Batty Halloween Place Card Holders

By:

Use a combination of Mod Podge and FolkArt Extreme Glitter to create Halloween place card holders that are spook-tacular for your Halloween party.
 

I'm Going Batty Halloween Place Card Holders 

Materials:

  • 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


Instructions:

 

  1. 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.
     
  2. Use this template to cut the pot shape out of your sheets of scrapbook paper. Set the paper aside.
     
  3. 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.
     
  4. 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.
     
  5. Paint the wooden bats with Black Extreme Glitter. Paint several coats for a more glittery effect. Set aside to dry.
     
  6. 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.
     
  7. 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.
     
  8. Use the silver paint pen to add accents to your bats and to write your guests’ names as shown in the photo.
     
  9. 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.
