How to:

1. Turn your plate upside down and paint the center of your plate and adhere your photo to it with Modge podge.
2.Tear off strips of scrapbook paper. I used three different sheets.
3. Glue on the teared pieces of scrapbook paper.
4. Cover the plate until all that you have left is a border.
4. Paint the border and the entire plate.
5. Let paint dry
6. Paint it over with more modge podge.
7. Let it dry
5. Make a Halloween flower

Halloween Flower
1. Trace three circles on paper. (large, medium, and small circle) Use three different sheets of scrapbook paper.
2. Cut circles out and crumple them up in your hand.
3. Open circles up and rub creases with antique ink
5. Put it all together with a cute brad.
6. Use pop dots to adhere to plate.

Other Embellishments:
Use orange jewels and put them around the border of the plate and last but not least adhere the jeweled wording to your photo. I found mine at Heartland Scrapbooking store in Ladera Ranch, CA.

 Now go grab yourself a couple pieces of CANDY out of the Halloween bowl and Have FUN making your Halloween plate. 

Happy Halloween!!
