Instructions

  1. Paint the base of the box with Parisian Pink and the lid with Pure Black. Use two coats for complete coverage. Top-coat with Mod Podge Hard-coat.
  2. Cut a skull motif from the fabric. Coat the back of the fabric with Mod Podge Fabric, position onto the box and smooth with your fingers. Add glitter dots by pooling Mod Podge extreme glitter in random areas.
  3. Create a Mod Melt flower by heating a Mod Melt stick in a high temp glue gun, fill a mold with the Mod Melt, allow to cool, remove from the mold and paint with FolkArt Lemonade paint. Top-coat the Mod Melts with Mod Podge Hardcoat. Once dry, glue a gem to the centers of the flower.
  4. Hot glue the flower to the top of the box. Holt glue trim around the lid of the box. Use gem glue to attach rhinestones around the box.

Tip: Paint a skull! Can’t find Day of the Dead fabric? Paint a skull using FolkArt acrylic paints.
