Halloween Plaques

On Friday evening, the youngest Red Coucher insisted on doing a craft RIGHT NOW!  Zoulah, being the kind, patient, and loving house witch that she is, hosted a craft night for the Red Couch girls.  It's made with simple stuff we had around our home.  Did I tell you?  She is also a thrifty witch.  We put them on our Halloween tree -- Zoulah will show you that later.

These little plaques were for the spring and were discounted in the fall for twenty-nine cents each.

Zoulah's directions:

1.  Paint over the herb signs with black, or your choice of paint, paint.  Let dry.
2.  Find a decoration and modge podge it on.
3.  Apply another thin coat of Modge Podge.  Let dry.
4.  Tie on a piece of cute ribbon or tulle.
5.  If you want to use glitter.  When the Modge Podge is still wet, press on a coating of glitter.  Let dry and then put on your decoration and apply a thin layer to the plaque and let dry.

Talley (10 years) made the one with the spider.  Tati (15 years) made the one with the cat.  I (29 years :)made the one with the pumpkin.

Thanks for dropping by Red Couch Recipes.

Try saying that three times fast.

I really love Zoulah's project. I love to mod podge so it's right up the old alley.

One of these days you should link to Seasonal Sundays. Your craft is right on target. I doesn't have to be a craft. You and Zoulah have so much going on.
