Fall and Halloween are on the top of my list for my favorite time of year. I love the weather food and decorations! I especially love the outdoor decor during the fall, the hay bales, cornstalks and pumpkins. I wanted to dress up my cornstalks this year and found the perfect product to be able to do that. Mod Podge Outdoor. Mod Podge Outdoor is a water based sealer, glue and finisher that lets you decoupage for the outdoors! For this outdoor project I wanted to do a silhouette of a witch and use my profile for the witch.
For my project you will need:
Mod Podge Outdoor
thin wood medallion
inspiration for a silhouette
I had my daughter take a picture of my profile with a bun in my hair and wearing a witch hat. I printed it out as a 5×7 size and then traced my profile with a pen and cut it out. I then traced this pattern onto some black scrapbook paper and cut that out.
Next I traced my wood medallion onto some scrapbook paper and cut it out. I put a thin layer of Mod Podge Outdoor onto my medallion and then pressed my scrapbook paper onto that and let it dry for about 15 minutes.
I then put a thin layer of Mod Podge Outdoor all over the scrapbook paper and placed my black witch silhouette in the middle of the medallion, smoothing out any wrinkles. After this dried I applied a thin layer of Mod Podge outdoor 3 more times over the entire front of the medallion, letting each coat dry before applying the next.
Since I also love outdoor decor for Thanksgiving, I decided to make this medallion reversible so I could use it for Thanksgiving.
So on the back I followed the steps from above, but Mod Podged on the words “Give Thanks”. With Mod Podge Outdoor you must let your project dry 72 hours before placing outdoors, and then reapply some Mod Podge Outdoor every few months for added protection.
To finish off the raw edge of the medallion I hot glued on some twine around the entire circumference. I then drilled a small hole on either side of the medallion to run some thin wire through to be able to attach it to my cornstalks.
This is what my porch will look like come November.
And this is what it looks like now. All dressed up and pretty for Halloween. I love the way the medallions dress up the cornstalks and compliments the pumpkins.
I have had these medallions up for several days now and they are holding up just fine. They look as good as when I first put them out.
