Make it: New Year's Eve Centerpiece
New Year’s Eve – Candle Plate and Candle
Matte Mod Podge
Scrapbook papers – 3 different styles
Decorative feathers, trims & Silk flowers
Sticky back “new year” rhinestones
1. Trace around the plate onto a piece of scrapbook paper. (leave a little extra for overhang – this will be trimmed later). Cut out the design. Apply mod podge to the back of the plate and to both side of the cut paper. Place the paper design side down on the back of the plate. Use your fingers to press out any air bubbles. Allow to dry.
2. Cut a second piece of scrapbook paper to fit the top-inside of the plate. Apply Mod Podge to the back and front of the paper. Position the paper in the center of the plate, press out any air bubbles with you fingers and smooth your brush strokes. Allow to dry and hot glue decorative trim around the edge of the paper.
3. Hot glue decorative trim around the outer edge of the plate. Add a flower to one corner and apply the “new year” stickers across the top of the plate.
4. Trim the last piece of scrapbook paper to fit around the candle. Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper. Wrap the paper around the candle, hold into position. Apply more Mod Podge to topcoat over the design.
