15 Ultra Inspiring 'Podge Crafts!


Today I'm partnering with Hometalk, the DIY social media site that lets you post, ask questions, and collect DIY ideas, all in one place.
The good people at Hometalk asked if I would curate a board of decoupaged (and Mod Podged) crafts. Eek! Of course I said "yes!", and I'm super excited to share my roundup of some awesome projects featuring, you guessed it, Le Mod Podge.

Let the Podging Begin
I kind of have a love affair with Mod Podge. I hadn't so much as held a bottle of it until a year ago, and now it's one of my favorite crafting tools! These projects are majorly getting my juices flowing (percolating?) for my next Mod Podge endeavor.

Feast yer eyes on these lovelies and be inspired to create something of your own!

Decoupaged Apothecary Jars 
Tricia of Simplicity in the South put these awesome containers together using vintage labels and a little Mod Podge. My mind just exploded thinking about all the ways I could alter an old glass jar to give it some serious va-va-voom!

Map Covered Crate
Tricia also made this bomb looking crate using a map and a plain old crate from Michael's. Love, love the map look. Need I say more?

Faux Cranberry Glass 
Cranberry glass can be pricy stuff! But Carolyn from Homework shared how she made this set of expensive looking cranberry glass jars, for just a couple bucks!

Decorative Napkin covered Globe 
Globes are the hot item right now, especially altered ones. Viviennne of The V Spot showed off her revamped globe using party napkins. I love that print!

Computer Printed Paper Lamp Shade 
First of all this is using printed paper, like PRINTED out from the computer. That means absolutely f-r-e-e to make. I can't believe how good this lamp looks! Barb of Second Chance to Dream made an old lamp shade new with ease.  Plus she even shares a tip for keeping the colors from smearing when applying 'podge.

Mod Podge Map Clock 
Maps again. Yes, I have a weakness. But how smart is this clock by Tricia of Simplicity in the South? Any thrift store clock can be the wow factor on the wall with a trendy background and Mod Podge. She makes it look so easy. :)

Botanical Coasters Hack 
Brilliant! These floral coasters are actually hacks of a much more expensive set. Uncommon Designs Online turned a set of 99 Cent store cork coasters into beauties, using 'podge to seal in the paint and make them water resistant.

Children's Book Page Boxes 
I have some old Golden Books from my childhood sitting in my closet. I love what Robyn of All Things Heart and Home did with her old books! Wouldn't this be a cute way to store cards, or wrap presents and give as a gift?

Coffee Filter Lamp Shade 
Coffee filter meets lamp, equals ultra sophistication. Vilma of Lampada made this lamp for her Etsy Shop. She makes and sells these couture looking lamps, all made from inexpensive materials like wire and coffee filters. You've got to go see her collection!

Napkin Mirror Makeover 
This is a mirror I made a few months ago by yours truly. I turned a boring white mirror into an eye catcher using a $2 pack of Target napkins. Click on the image to see my tutorial and how it looks with the rest of the DIY stuff in my house. :)

Anthro Inspired Collage Art Plates 
I have to admit I've never seen anything like this before. Decoupaging art posters to plates??? Jessica Mad in Crafts pulls off this Anthro inspired craft flawlessly. She has an extremely well written tutorial on how she turned thrift store plates into a work of art (she saved $1600!!!). No reason to ever throw a decorative plate away. Just make it over!

Easy Way to Make Subway Art (no die cuts required!) 
Finally a tutorial on how to make trendy subway art without having to cut out EVERY SINGLE LETTER. Like many of us, Amy of Mod Podge Rocks! didn't have a cutting machine, so she figured out a simple way to get the look without the hassle. Thanks, Amy, I see myself making some subway art like this very very soon!

Real vs. Fake Mod Podge: An Experiment

You've seen all those recipes on Pinterest about how to make your own Mod Podge on the cheap. I tried my hand at making a DIY batch, and then compared it side by side to the real deal. I was surprised by what I saw! (hint: I'll be sticking with the real stuff from now on!)

Revamped Side Table 
It's a map. on a table. it's amazing. there is nothing more to say (high five Barbara at Chase the Star, well done!).

Mod Podged Pumpkins 
Halloween, Easter, Christmas. I guarantee there will be something round that will be begging to be Mod Podged at every single holiday. I might as well learn how to do it ahead of time. This craft by Worthington Court shows off some sweet and bright decoupaged faux pumpkins! Pinning this for later :D
