Project Instructions

  • 1
    Create the Mod Melt rose by heating a Mod Melt stick in a high-temp hot glue gun. Squeeze the melt into the flower molds. Allow the melt to cool for 7 minutes. Remove the melt from the mold and finish with paint. Use two coats of Inca Gold paint. Once dry top-coat with Gold extreme glitter. Glue the rose to the key with the E600 glue.
  • 2
    Cut a small strip of cardstock to fit around the stem of the key. Apply Mod Podge to the cardstock. Wrap the cardstock around the stem and top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge to seal the cardstock.
  • 3
    Using gem glue, attach flat backed pearls to the stem of the key. You may find it helpful to use the tip of a grease pencil to pick up gems and place them into glue.
