  4. Remove tape and carefully paint the rest of the plant poke in black. Allow to dry.

  7. Using a pencil, plan out your letters on the black space.

  9. Using your black paint and a small brush, fix up any mistakes in your letters.  
  10. Dip the tips of the pokes into Mod Podge Resin, see downloadable information PDF in supply list, as it will keep your pokes clean and reusable. Mod Podge Resin is food safe.
