Mod Podge is a fantastic tool that she highly recommends having in her craft room at all times. There are so many ways to put it to good use! She wants to remind you to hit that thumbs-up button and let’s dive right into it.
One of her favorite hacks involves using Mod Podge to create a fake water line. It’s a cost-effective alternative to purchasing an epoxy kit for creating fake water. Though it may not show up as prominently, it still looks great, especially if you’re working on a tight budget.
She suggests putting Mod Podge in the bottom of a glass container and allowing it to dry. Repeat this process until you achieve the desired thickness or number of layers. Although it’s challenging to capture on camera, the result is incredible in person.
To create a fun table tray or party bowl, she shares an easy technique. Take a clear container, such as a garden dish from the gardening section, and cover it entirely with Mod Podge.
Then, choose your preferred tissue paper. While Valentine’s colors are an option, she personally loves white tissue paper with glitter.
Apply the tissue paper to the container, ensuring it’s as smooth as possible, and don’t worry about the wrinkles since they will be covered up later. Trim away any excess tissue paper after it’s completely dry, then paint the entire thing white.
The end result will be a beautiful table tray or party bowl that can complement any style of decor.
She also enjoys using Mod Podge to transform plates. This versatile technique can be used for various purposes. She suggests selecting fabric that you like, cutting it to fit the size of the plate, and applying a generous amount of Mod Podge.
Press the fabric onto the plate, smoothing out any wrinkles. Once dry, trim away any excess fabric.
She even shares a creative idea of attaching a mug to the plate with a heart design, using a combination of E6000 glue and hot glue. Adding a toiletry candle inside the mug completes the gift idea.
Mod Podge can be used to create DIY coasters, which make perfect gift ideas for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or as spring decor. Start with wooden slices and paint them in a plain background color, such as white and pink.
Then, use beautiful stickers featuring daisies, roses, or other floral designs to decorate the coasters.
Apply two to three coats of Mod Podge to protect the stickers from peeling or water damage. The end result is a set of lovely coasters that can add a pop of color to any space.
For an easy craft project, she suggests using wooden or bamboo utensils from the Dollar Tree. Pick out cute robot transfers from the craft section and use Mod Podge to attach them to the utensils.
Keep in mind that these utensils are for decorative purposes only, but they can look adorable in a crock or be used as a gift idea.
Using book pages is another creative way to utilize Mod Podge. Instead of throwing away damaged or unwanted books, she encourages repurposing them into something beautiful.
By covering metal planters from the Dollar Tree with book pages, you can create a charming vintage look.
She recommends cutting the book pages at an angle to create an overlapping effect and attaching them with Mod Podge. Add a vintage key and a bow for an extra touch.
If you have a jar lying around, don’t let it go to waste. Transform it into a decorative piece using Mod Podge and book pages. Paint the top and bottom of the jar, leaving the label intact in the center. Cut book pages to fit the center portion and adhere them with Mod Podge.
This creates a beautiful jar with a mixed texture. To enhance it further, she suggests creating a tag with a wooden circle, painting it gray, and drawing a vine design with leaves. Hang the tag in the center of the jar for an added element.
Finally, she shares an easy craft idea using wooden cubes. Paint or stain the cubes in a light wood color and personalize them to create family blocks.
These blocks can be displayed on a shelf or gifted to someone special. Apply a heavy coat of Mod Podge to protect and seal the blocks.
She hopes you find these Mod Podge projects enjoyable and encourages you to get creative with this versatile crafting tool.
