Dress pattern tea lights

dress pattern tea lightsYou know that lately I like Mod Podge projects that use dress patterns. I’m not sure what it is, but there’s something comforting about those tissue sheets. Maybe it is that my mom made me go to sewing camp (there is, or at least there was, such a thing!) when I was 10 years old. At the time I hated it – now I’m glad I had to.

Anyway, you can get dress patterns on the cheap (I get mine for crafting for $.99), and use them to decoupage to just about anything. They look great on wood – and apparently glass too! My only word of advice. Apply the Mod Podge to the surface (your item) and then brush the pattern sheet onto the surface. It sounds weird but the pattern sheet is so thin that the Mod Podge will soak in quickly. If you do it this way you’ll avoid rips. Have fun decoupaging pattern sheets to everything!
