Instructions

  1. Paint the base of the basket with Bright Baby Pink and the handle with Soft Apple. Use two coats if necessary. Allow to dry.

  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 acrylic paint – Bright Baby Pink. Add painted highlights of Engine Red. Once dry, top-coat with Mod Podge Gloss. Repeat, making 2 flowers with Soft Apple paint.
  4. Hot glue the Mod Melt roses to the front of the basket. Glue trim to the handle.
  5. Apply two coats (allow for drying in between) of Hologram Extreme Glitter to the bird.
