Make a DIY Halloween place setting with scrapbook papers and Mod Podge.

Anyone who has been to my house for a holiday meal, knows that I "heart" chargers - as nuts as it sounds....I really do just like the way they frame a plate.  So when I was working on Halloween ideas and came across black chargers at the dollar store...I was a bit smitten and inspired!

You only need a few things...... {{Gather This}}

Glass Plate
Scrapbook Paper
Mod Podge
Foam Paintbrush
Torn Book Pages
Folkart Metallic Paint in Silver
Paper Towel

 Begin by tracing a circle from scrapbook paper.  This should be sized to fit the base of the plate.

 Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the printed side of the paper.

Apply a second coat of Mod Podge to the back of the paper.

Place the paper in the center (backside) of the plate.  Press any air bubbles with your fingers, smooth your brushstrokes.  Use a damp paper towel to clean any Mod Podge that is brushed over the edge of the paper.  Allow to dry.  Hand wash the top only with a damp rag.  Don't submerge in water.

Working on the charger, Mod Podge torn book pages around the center of the charger.  Allow to dry.

Scrunch a damp paper towel into a ball.  Dip the paper towel into silver paint.  Tap paint around the edges.  Allow to dry.

Finished Charger.

Layer the plate over the charger.
