Hey, Gators! It’s spooky season or as I like to call it, the most wonderful time of the year. I’ve teamed up with my friends at Plaid to create some Halloween party magic. Welcome to Madame Mystery’s mystical parlor. She sees all, she knows all and takes all forms of payment.

Disclosure: Some supplies have been provided by Plaid, and I have received compensation for this post. Project idea and opinions are my own.

The table is set for a magical night. Will good fortune be in the cards? I made a set of four palmistry plates using Mod Podge Dishwasher Safe Gloss and FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Titanium White.

I absolutely love how these plates turned out. They’re so unique and I’ll be able to use them year after year.

 

I followed Mod Podge experts’, Cathie Filian and Steve Piacenza’s, tutorial to a tee to create these spellbinding plates. Check out their informative tutorial here to create your own.

A one-of-a-kind hand-painted tablecloth made from a canvas drop cloth is the perfect backdrop for this enchanted table setting.

The center of the tablecloth features a mesmerising crystal ball. I blended various shades of FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic purple paints to give the ball a swirled effect. A simple base painted in blues completes the design. Check out this awesome 16 piece paint color set to get started on your design.

I  traced around a big bowl to get the perfect circular shape for the crystal ball. Painted stars are strewn over the remainder of the tablecloth. I traced around some star decorations I  had on hand, but freehand stars would look great too. Have fun with it!

Speaking of free handing, I freehanded the message “Fortunes Told” and painted the letters with FolkArt Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Paint in Teal. Here’s a pic of the painted tablecloth before Madame Mystery moved in. 

Madame Mystery’s face and hands were created using tissue paper and Mod Podge Matte. She’s truly a showstopper. I’ve created a few figures over the years using Mod Podge including these witches.

No fortune teller is complete without a crystal ball.

I created this one by squeezing and swirling FolkArt Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint in Turquoise and Robin’s Egg Blue with FolkArt Multi-Surface Glitter Acrylic Paint in Turquoise into a plastic snow globe I purchased online.

I used a foam brush to cover the outside of the globe with Blue Stars Glitterific.

I painted the base with a few coats of FolkArt Home Decor Chalk Paint in Blue Chill.

If you look close enough, you might be able to see your future.

Thanks for stopping by Madame Mystery’s place! If you like these Halloween projects be sure to check out my Popcorn Pumpkin and Coffee Can Halloween Luminaries. Excuse me, I’m off to have my palm read.
