In an effort to make a few more family memories...and to just slow down and enjoy our tiny bit of time together between all the go go go, I'm adopting Melanie's idea of making a different dessert each Sunday.
I started by giving the skeleton heads a quick spray of primer.
I've always had the best luck painting beads by sliding them on wooden skewers.
Then I gave each bead a few coats of paint. Folk Art has a patented, self-sealing formula that offers better coverage in fewer coats and quick drying times. Whatever charms you choose to use, the same bottle of paint works for wood, glass, ceramic, metal, terra cotta, rigid plastic, canvas, styrofoam, slate, paper mache and fabric!
After the paint dried, I gave each skull a few more coats of glow in the dark Mod Podge. If you want more glow, just add more coats!
Then start stringing your beads and tassels!
We ended up making a whole bunch assembly line style...which are going to be perfect favors for our preschool Halloween party!
