Spray paint the plate, skull, and candlestick black. When it has dried, apply Mod Podge Shimmer to the skull and candletick. The MP dries to an amazing metallic shimmer!
Back to the lace: once it has dried, it will be stiff yet malleable. Peel the lace off the paper. Trim off any excess MP, and shape the lace into a crown. You can glue the ends together or if the MP is still tacky just press the ends together firmly and they will stick.
Now to assemble our queen! Use a glue gun to attach the skull to the candlestick. Next, glue her lace collar on to the base of the skull. Now you can glue the candlestick to the plate and top it off with a lace crown! I think it looks good a little askew.
