There are a few crafting world trends that I'm not going to get over: deer, mustaches, just to name a few . . . and woodgrain. I know that some of you are with me on this one. So when I came up with designs for the new Mod Podge Rocks stencils, I knew that I had to include a woodgrain pattern. And that's exactly what I did. What I had in mind for this particular stencil was home decor projects, so my first one was a lamp revamp. You can get great lamps at Target and IKEA, among other places. Here's how to make this DIY woodgrain lamp!
Gather These Supplies
- Lamp with a fabric shade – make sure it is square or perfectly round; you don't want it to be a different size on the top than it is on the bottom
- Mod Podge Gloss
- Mod Podge Rocks stencils – Woodgrain
- Glitter in the color of your choice
Quickly sprinkle the Mod Podge on the glitter before the Mod Podge dries. AND . . . put a piece of printer paper below while you are doing this to catch the glitter. You'll want to use it again (no wasting!).
Shake the glitter off on the paper and let it dry. I washed my stencil between each repeat, and put the glitter back in the container. There's some drying time involved, but you don't have to wait around. The project doesn't take that long if you subtract drying time. Just plan on working on other things!
Also when the glitter is dry, brush off the excess before repeating the stencil. Work your way around the lamp and you are done!
