Morena from Morena’s Corner is quite the Mod Podger, so I’m thrilled to have her here guest posting, especially about Halloween. Morena knows her way around a skull or two, so she’s made this lovely queen skull display to jazz up your home for the big day. Let guests admire your craftiness as they grab a candy from the tray. Here is Morena to tell you how it was made.
For this project you’ll need:
-3 inch candlestick
-paper mache skull
-sheet music paper
-Mod Podge Glitter, Mod Podge Shimmer, Mod Podge Paper
While that dries, start on the plate. Tear sheet music paper into pieces. Cover the plate surface with MP and begin adhering the pieces. After it has dried, trim the edges and seal with MP.
Back to the lace: once it has dried, it will be stiff yet malleable. Peel the lace off the paper. Trim off any excess MP, and shape the lace into a crown. You can glue the ends together or if the MP is still tacky just press the ends together firmly and they will stick.
Now to assemble our queen! Use a glue gun to attach the skull to the candlestick. Next, glue her lace collar on to the base of the skull. Now you can glue the candlestick to the plate and top it off with a lace crown!
