Mod Podge Love

I had to share the "secret" to some of my easiest projects - MOD PODGE!  

Every time I post a picture of something I have mod podged...I get lots of emails with questions, so I thought I would share on here!  I have covered glass, plastic and wood so far with mod podge using fabric and scrapbook paper.  SUPER easy, and always looks great.  Just start by "gluing" the fabric/paper down...smooth it out with a brush or your fingers and put a coat of mod podge over the top of your project. You'll end up with a beautiful finish when the mod podge dries.  I haven't tried using pictures yet, but I'll let you know how it goes when I get a chance to try it out.  :O)

Here are a few pictures of the various things I've tried...

A couple years ago, I actually poked tiny holes in real eggs and blew the inside out.  ha ha.  Crazy. I used a paper napkin to decoupage that beautiful damask.  Because of the tedious process and my impatience, I only ended up with 2 eggs.  :O)

Brooke's Room - The B is just a wood letter covered with some scrap fabric.  

Old wood frame covered in fabric to match the twin's room.

Light Plate covered in Fabric.

Old Dresser - painted and used fabric & furniture mod podge on the drawers.

Christmas Ornaments covered in scrapbook paper.
  I also used a glitter spray paint to add some extra shine.

Easter eggs covered in pages from an old hymnal.  This time I used plastic eggs instead of real eggs.  SO MUCH EASIER.  :O)
