Instructions

Preparation Instructions

  1. Neatly basecoat the body of the terra cotta pot Olive Green. Allow to dry and reapply base color.

  2. Basecoat rim of terra cotta pot Forest Moss. Allow to dry and reapply base color.

  3. Basecoat dowel and rectangle wood shape Olive Green.Using scissors cut out all desired paper shapes.

Crafting Instructions

  1. Using ¾” flat brush, apply Mod Podge to backside of each paper piece. Flip “podged” paper over and apply to dry basecoated surface. Press in place. Using Mod Podge squeegee holding at a 45° angle, pull squeegee toward you over wet papers using light pressure. This will release any caught air bubbles as well as squeeze out any excess Mod Podge. Allow to dry.

  2. Continue applying papers were desired over project surface until desired effect is achieved. Allow to dry.

  3. Apply Mod Podge over the front of the paper design to be added to the back of the rectangle acrylic shape. Allow to dry.

  4. Using a No. 6 flat brush, paint Forest Moss leaves on Olive Green terra cotta pot base between “podged” butterflies. Allow to dry.

  5. Apply one to two additional coats of Mod Podge over the entire surface allowing each to thoroughly dry before applying the next.

  6. Using writer tip of Gold Glitter Mod Podge Dimensional Magic, apply a liberal coat over butterflies on pot. Lay pot on its side while Dimensional Magic is drying.

  7. Attach the acrylic shape to the wood rectangle and then to the dowel to create the plant poke using either white craft glue or hot glue.
