Dumpster Floral Makeover For Halloween with Mod Podge
I love a good makeover. Especially if it is something I found for free, and I had some FREE goodies to make it over with, like this box of goodies I received from Mod Podge!
I removed the Floral arrangement from the container and spray painted the flowers in black and silver. Then I turned my attention to the container. I painted the entire thing in Folk Art Multi-Surface Paint in Charcoal Black. Just two coats, and it was midnight black. Looking creeeepy already!
I had so much fun with the next steps. I created my own letters for BOO! and SPOOKY! With Hot Glue! I used Mod Podge’s Silicone Craft Mat, you can use Hot Glue right on it to create whatever designs you like, or you can even use their gorgeous new Mod Podge Melts Glitters.
I had fun adding some witchy purple to the letters with Folk Art Craft paint in Purple. I used a pencil eraser to dab on the paint in dots.
Now for those fun little skulls. I used Mod Podge Molds. You squirt Hot Glue, or one of their Melts into the Silicone Mold and when it sets up, you have a fun little decal! I made a Sugar Skull from Hot Glue! There are endless mats from Mod Podge for every theme. Letters and numbers too. I embellished the skulls with more of the Purple Paint. Check out those feet too! They are sporting creepy Purple Polish on those bony toes!
Happy Halloween! BOO!
