Owl crafts: Glow-in-the-Dark Plaque - Mod-hodgepodge rock
This fun craft owl is perfect for autumn and Halloween! Paint a panel and then use Glow in the Dark Mod hodgepodge as a special touch.
One of the things that fascinated me about Halloween, when I was a kid, was everything that glowed in the dark. When my brothers and I got our first glow-in-the-dark toy, we spent hours charging it under the lights, runs into the bathroom and closes the door, to see it, and then repeat. SO much fun!
As an adult, I still love everything that glows. I love the glowing projects for Halloween, so this year I made an owl craft! It is a painted owl piece during the day – and if you turn off the lights, they are a luminous surprise, will see! It is easy to create, these owl crafts in just a few steps.

TIP #2: RUB the sandpaper over the edges a little bit stressful, there, too.
Print your owl template on your cardboard. To cut, use your cutter knife to the black parts of the paper. You work slowly and carefully, especially around the small pieces. This is the template you will use for the badge.
Set the template down in the center of the plaque. At this point, you can stencil, use tape to hold the stencil down, but I found that the template in place on the top of the plaque (I held it down easily with my hand). Use the stencil brush and Apple-green color, stencil the owl on the top of the plaque.
