Other Supplies

Instructions

  1. Create a handful of Mod Melt flowers 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 acrylic paints. We used: Neon Orange and Glow Green.
  2. Hot glue the flowers to the frames.
  3. Chevron frame: Trim the neon cardstock to fit the frame. Tape the stencil to the cardstock. Load a Spouncer brush with metallic black paint, tap off the excess and paint the stencil. Remove the stencil and allow to dry. Apply a Halloween image to the painted paper by using Mod Podge as a glue. Replace the glass and hot glue gems to the corner.
  4. Skull frame: Trim the scrapbook paper to fit the frame. Apply Halloween cutouts to the paper by using Mod Podge as a glue. Replace the glass.

Tip: Don’t have black frames? Paint thrift shop and yard sale frames with Black Folkart paint to create a uniform look.
