DIY Halloween Silhouette Plates
I love Halloween because it signals all things cozy - pumpkin spice, candles, blankets, and gatherings. One of the first gatherings of the new season
As you can imagine, we don't get very many trick-or-treaters up here. Actually, we get zero. However, this year they are starting a new get together at the local school (which got shut down last year, and is now used as a community center). I volunteered to take a corner and go all out. Needless to say, I am very excited!
I imagine these plates at a Halloween table, and I think they would be adorable with personalized names on them!
Step 1: Print out your images. Apply a light coat of sealant, let completely dry. Repeat 2-3 times.
Step 2: Cut out the silhouette, trimming off as much white as possible
Step 3: Apply a generous coat of mod podge to the back of the cut out, and while still wet, place onto the plate or platter. Use the back of a credit card to smooth out any bubbles (don't skip this step!). Make sure all of the edges of the paper are glued down.
Step 4: Apply a top coat of mod podge over the entire surface of the plate. Repeat 2-3 times.
