You will need:
A thin 24×2-1/4 inch wood board
B O O wooden letters
Black acrylic gloss paint
Glow in the dark Mod Podge
Mod Podge Brayer
2 Plastic bowls (I got them 2 for a $1 at Target)
Skull fabric (I actually got a bandana and cut it up)
Super Gloss Mod Podge
Paint brush (I do not like the sponge type because it sucks up too much Mod Podge and it’s a waste)
Mod Podge Sealer (optional)
** Before starting the work of the board, please make sure to sand it so the surface is smooth!
1. Apply 2-3 layers of black paint to the wood board and a layer of black paint to the letters. Let it dry completely.
2. Trace the B O O letters onto the scrapbook paper. You will need two sets per letter, to cover front and back. Cut out the letter and make sure the fit is exact.
3. Apply a thin layer of glow-in-the-dark Mod Podge onto the letter. Place the scrapbook cut-out on top, fit it exactly. First, press with your hands then roll it with the brayer so there are no air pockets or wrinkles left. Let it dry. Repeat this step with the other side of the letters.
4. When the letters are dry, brush them over the top with glow-in-the-dark Mod Podge, in a thin and even layer. You will need to do 4 layers of glowin-the-dark Mod Podge for it to glow good.
5. Cut all the fabric into 1 inch squares. Using the super gloss Mod Podge, brush a small part of the bowl and place the fabric square on top of it. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge over the top and smooth with your brush. Keep applying more Mod Podge to a small area, overlapping a little with the fabric piece that’s already in place. Repeat until the whole inside of the bowl is covered.
6. Leave the bowl to dry. When the inside part is dry, work on the bottom of the bowl. Let it dry completely.
7. Cover the bowl with another thin layer of super gloss Mod Podge, inside first then the bottom. Let it dry between covering top and bottom or the bowl will stick to the surface.
8. Spray with Mod Podge sealer so the bowls are not sticky. Mod Podge tends to stay a little sticky even after it dries.
9. To attach the letters to the board, put it 3 nails (even distance apart) through the bottom of the board so the nails go all the way through. The nail will still out of the top of the board, use them to attach the letter. Hammer the letters on very gently.
10. Nail the ghost to the back of the board, behind the letters.
