  4. Spread out cheesecloth and form it around the previously drawn circle. Continue this process until the wreath is full and thick. Refer to the photo for fullness. Allow the Stiffy to dry overnight. To speed up drying time you could place a fan on wreath. 
  5. Once the wreath is dry, remove from clingwrap. Cut off a piece of cheesecloth, place it on paper plate. Pour Mod Podge Stiffy over the cheesecloth until it is completely saturated. Stretch cheesecloth across the bottom portion of the wreath to form a spiderweb. Attach the cheesecloth with the white string. Allow the Stiffy to dry. 
  6. Paint the letters with Princess Purple. Allow to dry. 
  7. Paint the witch as follows: Hair – Outrageous Orange Hat – Black and Princess Purple Face – Mix Lemon and True Green together to get a yellow green color Dress – Black Legs – Princess Purple Shoes – Black Eyes – Black and Snow White 
  8. Water down the black and shade around warts, face and hair, legs and hat. 
  9. Highlight shoes, warts, hat and nose with Snow White. 
  10. To make the bat cut out the bat shape from black fabric. 
  11. Cover the two dowels in clingwrap. Place the dowel onto clingwrap. 
  12. Place the cutout bat onto paper plate and saturate with Stiffy. Make sure both sides of bat are covered. 
  13. Place the bat on top of the dowel so that the wings are going across the dowels and the bats body is flat on surface. Allow the bats to dry. 
  14. Remove bats from clingwrap. Brush Mod Podge Gloss onto the body of the bat and add black glitter.

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.
