Other Supplies

Papier-mâché Ornament – 6 sides, Paintbrush, Flower Lace Ribbon, Hot Glue, Flat Backed Pearls,


  1. Blend together equal parts of Calypso Sky and Pearl White paint. Paint the ornament with paint mixture. Allow to dry.
  2. Hot glue lace ribbon down each side of the ornament.
  3. Create 6 Mod Melt doves by heating a Mod Melt stick in a high-temp hot glue gun. Squeeze the melt into the dove mold. Allow the melt to cool for 7 min. Remove the melt from the mold. Paint the doves with Pearl White paint. Allow to dry.
  4. Hot glue the doves to the center of the ornaments over the lace ribbon. Hot glue pearls to the flower trim above and below the doves.
Tip: When making Mod Melts, feel the bottom of the mold to check for coolness. When the bottom feels cool the Mod Melts is ready to pop out.
