.:Halloween Décor with Mod Podge:.

It’s officially October – can you believe it?

For me, October is the kick off of the holiday season, which in turn brings in a lot of decorating!

I had the opportunity to create something using a bunch of fabulous Mod Podge products, and I ended up with these fun, Halloween plates to display.


Halloween-y? Check. Cute? Check.

Wanna make some?

Here are the first things you need to gather:

- plates (I love these geometric plates I found on clearance at Target – spent less than $3 for them!)
- Halloween-y scrapbook paper

If you’re lucky like me, you’ll have all of this Mod Podge goodness to choose from. Can you believe this loot?

Did you know there is a sparkle Mod Podge? There is. So naturally, that’s what I chose to work with. We’re all about the glitter and sparkle around these parts. Take your Mod Podge, and give all of your plates a nice coating. Set the plates aside to dry.

While your plates are drying, cut out some letters with your Halloween paper. You can do this with a digital cutting machine, or by hand; it doesn’t matter! Since I had three large plates and three small plates, I needed two three letter words. I went with ‘BOO’ and ‘EEK’.

Next, I decided to use something I’ve been wanting to try for the longest time: Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. Again, I used the glitter version! I decided to use the Dimensional Magic on all of the black parts of the designs. This gives the letters a fun, textured (and sparkly!) effect.


This stuff is awesome. You just squeeze it into the area you want to be dimensionalized (what, that’s a word) and then let it dry! Easy!


My original plan was just to Mod Podge the letters directly to the plate. But then I saw these guys: 3-D Mounts. I knew I had to use them to adhere the letters to the plate. It would just add to the overall look! You just peel them off, apply them wherever you want to adhere, and then remove the other paper and stick the letter down.


It just finished off the project to add even more dimension to it!


Grab some easels and other Halloween décor, and set up your smashing display!


I pretty much love them.


They are the perfect addition to our Halloween display in our new house, and I really couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. They are even better than I imagined!


Did this get your creative wheels turning? Here are a some other ideas of things you could make using these fabulous Mod Podge products.

  2. These are so great. I almost bought the plates on clearance at Target but didn't have the foresight that you'd come up with such a genius way to use them. BTW -- I am drooling over your fridge in the background. Would it be weird if I asked what kind it is? We're remodeling our kitchen over the winter and I'm game for any suggestions.
