How to Make a Fall Harvest Dollar Store Charger Craft
I shared the tutorial for this fall harvest craft on a Facebook Live which you can catch here. Or if you prefer the photo tutorial, continue reading below.
Brush on a coat of white paint on to the bottom of the charger plate. Leave the paint to dry before applying additional coats for extra coverage.
In the meantime, prepare the printed paper napkins by removing additional ply layers leaving just the one printed layer. Using a fine tip paintbrush or water pen “paint” the edges of the pumpkin design and carefully remove the design.
Take some Mod Podge or Decoupage and brush it over the painted part of the charger plate. Place the cutout on top of the glued area and gently press down with your fingers.
Additionally, you can place a piece of parchment paper over the glued napkin and take your heated iron and gently rub back and forth.
Apply some additional Mod Podge and then apply some diamond dust. Shake off any excess and let it dry.
Next hot glue faux leaves, berries, a bow and any other embellishments onto the charger plate until you’re happy with the look.
And now you have a beautiful fall harvest sign.
Add Charm And Warmth To Your Home
