This is the resin I used for this project:

FX Poxy:  http://amzn.to/2AF3Pkk ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.

Here is the video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made them:




Directions:

1.  I drew a cheeseburger template.

2.  I cut it out and traced it onto the plywood.

3.  I cut it out.

4.  I sanded the edges.

5.  I drew the lines on the wood cut outs, so I could use them as a guide for painting.


6.  The first one I did was with the Unicorn Spit.  See video to find out how I mixed the colors and painted the burger.  I did the second one with acrylic paint.



7.  I used a skewer stick paint little sesame seeds on the bun.  For the seeds, I used acrylic paint.

8.  I used my paint pen to outline the burger.

Here is how they look so far.

9.  Once dry, I applied painters tape to the back.  

10.  I burnished it down, to make sure the tape is well stuck.

11.  I used my craft knife to trim off the excess tape.


12.  I mixed resin and poured it onto the coasters.  

13.  I used my stir stick to move the resin around.

14.  I made sure to get the edges too.

15.  I repeated with the other coaster.

16.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles.

Here they are with the resin, but we're not done!

17.  I used my craft knife to cut along the edge, so I could remove the tape.


18.  I used acrylic paint to paint the back of the coasters.  This is simply to make sure the raw wood never gets wet.

19.  I used glue, just on the edge to prevent future peeling.

20.  I put the coaster on a piece of cork shelf liner.

21.  I trimmed around to remove the excess cork.

Here they are all finished!

Skeleton Halloween Dollar Store Craft | Halloween Crafts | Craft Klatch

Heat gun (optional):  https://amzn.to/307js11


Here is a video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:


Directions:

1.  I found this terrarium at the dollar store.  It's plastic and it was buck!


2.  I used black acrylic paint and poured it into the inside of the terrarium.

3.  I let it seep around until it covered the entire inside.

4.  I put it on a cup and let it seep out and dry.

5.  Once dry, I used a skewer stick and my craft knife to scrap the paint on the inside.  

You can see the scratches here:

6.  I poured red into the inside and swirled it around.

7.  I put it back on the cup and let the red drain out and let it dry.

8.  I used my Mod Podge and painted on some irregular stripes/drips on the inside.


9.  I then sprinkled the super fine glitter into it and let it all dry.


10.  I took my skeleton and clipped the loop off the top of his head.


11.  I used sandpaper to finish smoothing it out.

12.  I want to position the skeleton, so it looks like he is climbing out.

I wanted a more realistic bend in the knees, shoulder and elbows, so I used my heat gun.



13.  I put hot glue into the terrarium and added the moss.


14.  Then, I glued the skeleton onto the terrarium.


15.  I have this balloon or floral light and wanted to add it to the project.  I tied a piece of fishing line onto the light.  Then tied it to the top of the terrarium.  You want to make sure it is long enough to be put into the side hole.




16.  I glued spiders onto the outside.



17.  I added a ribbon, so it can be hung.




That's it!  I hope you like it and give it a try!  Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
