instructions

  1. Untie the knot in the jute and set aside.
  2. Trace your wood rounds onto the back of your craft paper. Alternatively you can use a circle stencil and make your circles all the same size.
  3. Cut out your circles.
  4. Using Mod Podge, coat the back side of your circle as well as the wood. Press the paper to the wood, smoothing out any bubbles. Tip: try to leave the edges of your circle free of Mod Podge. This will make it easier to burn the edges for a rustic look.
  5. Cut strips of plain craft paper to the size of your circle. This will be where you write names. Use Mod Podge to glue them down through the center. Allow to dry.
  6. Using a lighter, carefully burn the edges of your craft paper. The burn will stop when it hits the dried mod podge. Using your finger, smudge the ash around the perimeter of your paper.
  7. Using a marker or calligraphy pen, write the recipient's name on each.
  8. Using a pencil or other sharp item, push through the pre drilled hole and through the craft paper.
  9. Plug in your wood burner and allow to heat up.
  10. Press the tip to your woodround for about 15 seconds to create dark circles around the perimeter. See image.
  11. You can also create a differnmt design with your wood burner if wanted. Try lines!
  12. Lace your jute back through the holes. This is easier if you trim the edge of the jute.
  13. Tie the DIY gift tags to your gifts!

Decorated candles using Mod Podge ® or Royal Coat ® Decoupage Finish are meant for decorative purposes and not for illumination. Many of the decorations would catch fire and be hazardous if the candle were burned. However, if you are using a wide pillar candle and the decorations do not go to the top of the candle, it can be burned down slightly to create a well, then a votive candle inserted into the well. A new votive candle can be inserted when the old one is finished. Use extreme caution and good judgment when burning candles that have been decorated.
First check to see if the napkin is 2 ply. If so, separate and lay aside. Brush Mod Podge directly on the your surface. Carefully place the printed napkin on the surface and lightly blot down with a dampened sponge. Start blotting in the center and work to the edge. Once it is in place, let dry. After about 30 minutes lightly apply a top coat of Mod Podge.
  1. Apply a coat of Mod Podge® to the inside of the form and allow to dry slightly. Place the Napkin design where desired and gently rub it flat with your thumb.
  2. Cover the image with a second very thin coat of Mod Podge®, beginning in the center and brushing out. Allow to dry thoroughly.
  3. Add special sponging or spouncing effects, as desired, around the design and let dry.
  4. Paint the whole inside with a light color of FolkArt® Acrylic Colors. If you want to use a darker color inside, first paint around the Napkin design with a light color, let dry and then add the darker color.
