diy fabric covered jewelry gift boxHello lovely Mod Podgers! It’ Rachel again from Lines Across. I really love coming up with creative ways to wrap gifts. So much so, in fact, that I just launched a new website dedicated to all things gift wrap related called Let’s Wrap Stuff. Stop by and check it out. You can even submit your own gift wrap ideas (even if you don’t have a blog!).

Do you have a lot of fun fabric lying around and you’re not sure what to make with it? Maybe you have some cute scraps leftover from another project. Or maybe, like me, you can’t resist buying weird shaped cuts of pretty fabric in the discount bin at the craft store. These fabric covered jewelry DIY gift boxes are a perfect scrap busting project. You can tie a little bow around the top and use this handmade box to give a special gift, or you can just make a few to store your own jewelry in and add a little more color to your dresser.

What you need:

Fabric covered jewelry box - suppliesWhat you do:

1. Start by cutting a piece of fabric that will cover the top or bottom or your box. Make sure you leave extra room to cover the sides. Dab a medium coat of Fabric Mod Podge over the top of your box. You could also use regular Mod Podge, but the Fabric Mod Podge has a thicker texture that seems to soak into the fabric well.

step 12. Place the fabric on top of your box and press down so that the fabric is smooth and there are no bubbles. I wanted the box to feel like fabric, so I did not add any Mod Podge on top of the fabric.

step 23. As this is drying, flip the lid over and cut carefully along each corner of the box as shown in the picture below.

step 34. Dab Mod Podge around the outside edges of the box, and fold over the fabric pieces. If you are using a thin fabric, you can also fold the fabric over the box and add Mod Podge to the inside of the box as well. This will give a very finished looking edge on the outside of the box. You could also very carefully trim the fabric right across the edges of the box. Repeat the same process for the bottom of the box. (It would also be cute to just add fabric to the lid.)

step 45. If you want to add another touch, you could cut out a piece of felt and attach it with Fabric Mod Podge to the inside top and inside bottom of the box. It will also cover up the uneven edges of fabric that might be showing through. I used bright yellow felt for the top and bottom. (If I could do it again, I would use white felt for the bottom since it barely shows through.)

6. Since I wanted the box to feel like fabric, I didn’t add any Mod Podge to the outside of the fabric. I did, however, go back and add a very small amount of Mod Podge along the edges and corners to prevent fraying. Make sure you give the box ample time to dry before you put the top on the bottom.

You could also use seasonal colors and fabrics for special occasions like Christmas, and even use these little fabric covered boxes to give other items like gift cards. Be sure to stop by Let’s Wrap Stuff for more creative wrapping ideas, free printables, and tutorials, like these 24 Halloween treat bags and boxes, or this sleepy lion gift wrap.

How to make Mod Podge BOO blocksDo you have any leftover pieces of 2 x 4? If not, you can get them from your local home improvement store or dig for scraps at a construction site, because it’s time to make a cute Halloween project – these potion bottle “BOO” blocks! You can make them with any saying of your choice, but “BOO” is kinda nice just because it’s a little shorter, so you only need a few blocks. Here’s the tutorial, so get craftin.’

  • 2×4 wood pieces (15 inches)

img_8432Use sandpaper to sand the edges smooth and round them.

img_8433 img_8436Paint the blocks and finial dowel caps with Azure, Allow to dry.

img_8441Use the block fronts as templates to trace back of newspapers or printed scrapbook paper; cut out and set aside. Do this for the blue paper on the top and sides of the blocks too.

img_8439Draw BOO! Letters onto back of remaining blue scrapbook paper, making sure they are a size that fits onto each block with at least a ½” width. (Note: the “B” should be slightly larger as it will be for the largest block); cut out the letters.

img_8452Use Mod Podge to glue the letters onto the front of each block. Allow to dry.

img_8454Adhere papers with Mod Podge Matte, smoothing out all of the bubbles with your hands. Allow to dry.

img_8455Sand the edges of each block, sanding “off” some of the paper to give a distressed look. Sand dowel caps the to give an aged look. Then distress the edges of each block using black distress ink and cosmetic wedge.

img_8457Seal each block with a coat of Mod Podge. Allow to dry.

mod podge shoesMy WORD, y’all . . . this is one of those DIYs that turned out so much cuter than I could have imagined, and it was SO easy to boot. Simple canvas mary janes + glitter + Mod Podge is all you need for this darling DIY. Let’s get started, shall we?

mod podged shoes 2Materials:

  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • canvas shoes (I found these mary janes from Hobby Lobby (on sale, too!)
  • glitter (I used gold and pink, extra fine glitter)
  • round foam brush
  • painters tape

mod podged shoes 3Step 1: First, you’ll want to glitter the straps of the shoes. Add a thin layer of Mod Podge to one of your straps, and sprinkle liberally with glitter. Tap to remove excess. Repeat with your other shoe.

mod podge shoes 4Step 2: Tape off the sides of the shoe, so that when you use your foam brush to add Mod Podge to the side of your shoe, you’ll get a scallop shape once tape is removed.

mod podge shoes 4Step 3: Use your round foam brush to dot Mod Podge around the perimeter of your shoe. Sprinkle with glitter, and then remove the tape.

mod podge shoes 5Step 4: Let dry, and tap off excess glitter. Find a cute little model to wear your new creations and you’re done!

How to decoupage a dog house - make a fancy abode for your furry friend!Hi there – this is Justine from Sew Country Chick! I have four dogs here at the ranch. The tiniest is named Coco. She wandered in one day from the road after being abandoned most likely, and has been here ever since. One day, I was driving through a little town nearby called Ojai, and I found a little abandoned doghouse on the side of the road. So of course I put it in the van and brought it home!

Enter a little Mod Podge, paint, upholstery webbing, and wall paper samples, and voila: une belle maison for my petite chien. And I didn’t spend anything because I had all the materials on hand!

How to decoupage a dog house - make a fancy abode for your furry friend!Here’s how I took an old abandoned dog house from drab to fab.

Materials:

doghousebeforeFirst, I painted the dog house with a creamy color. I had some old, leftover paint lying around.

paintingbasecoatThen I got out some old wallpaper samples and upholstery webbing I had been saving for some future project. I love when I finally use up craft materials that are lying around. I ordered these wallpaper samples when we bought another home eight years ago. Yes, my name is Justine, and I’m a craft supply hoarder.

modPodging

ApplyingwallpaperpaintI painted the boards shades of red and yellow; Provencal colors. And cut strips of the French themed wallpaper and decoupaged them down to some of the boards. I also used the Mod Podge to cover some of the boards with the upholstery webbing.

aftersandingOnce it was all dry, I took some sandpaper to the project to do a little distressing.

stain

afterstainNow, I like my sanded pieces to look old, not just sanded, so I used my Provencal color stain to rub into the sanded bits of wood. This gives a nice patina to the wood.

How to decoupage a dog house - make a fancy abode for your furry friend!See how it gives a bit of patina? I go easy on the stain and wipe it on with a paper towel. If it looks like I’ve added too much, I sand it down a little to get some off. Once I was done adding patina, I painted on a thick coat of Mod Podge to seal all the little flecks of paper that had come loose from sanding. I might also add a coat of polyurethane to give even more outdoor protection. Coco loves her new maison!

Sheer Lattice Ribbon CandleThis is the time of year where time starts to run on fast forward. It all starts with Halloween costumes, home decorating that feels like it needs updated every month, and don’t even get me started on handmade gift giving and holiday cooking! This simple candle DIY is a quick and easy way to add an elegant touch to your home decor. This candle makes me think of the kind of craft Morticia Addams would do if she were in to DIY: a perfectly spooky – and perfectly easy – Halloween candle project.

Supplies

  • sponge dauber
  • dollar store container candle
  • sheer ribbon
  • Mod Podge Matte
  • scissors

Sheer Lattice Ribbon CandleDirections

Start by cutting 4 pieces of ribbon so that it wraps once around your container candle, as shown. Angle the ends of the ribbon – this will help avoid raveling, and it will make the edges of the ribbon line up with the edges of your candle.

Sheer Lattice Ribbon CandleIf your ribbon is sheer like mine, you can apply Mod Podge to the outside of the porous ribbon and it will stick the ribbon in place. If your ribbon is a bit tighter woven, you can daub Mod Podge onto your candle, and then place your ribbon to get it to stick.

Sheer Lattice Ribbon CandleMod Podge your first two pieces of ribbon parallel to each other, like this, taking care to line up the ribbon edges with the candles’ edges.

Sheer Lattice Ribbon CandleWhen your ribbons are placed, daub another layer of Mod Podge over the outside of each one.

Sheer Lattice Ribbon CandleNext, Mod Podge a third piece of ribbon, but have it spiraling the opposite way around your candle from the first two pieces. If you center the third piece of ribbon, you can make it cross over the other ribbon evenly.

Sheer Lattice Ribbon CandlePlace your last piece of ribbon parallel to the third piece, creating perfectly aligned diamonds all around your candle. Apply Mod Podge over all of your ribbon and let dry to finish.

Sheer Lattice Ribbon CandleIf you’d like, you can use rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball to wipe away some of the Mod Podge visible on your finished candle’s glass for a crisper look. Since this was intended for Halloween,  you could leave it a little cloudy looking for an aged, spookier look. I think Morticia would be all about the spook, don’t you? :)

wicked Mod Podge Necklace Halloween WalmartI’m absolutely positive you know who my friends Cathie and Steve are. They are Mod Podge (and lifestyle) experts and have several lines of Mod Podge products. Their most recent is Collage Clay . . . which if you haven’t played with it, is a blast! Another of their product lines features these pendant trays you can see in the “wicked” necklace above – and that is what they are guest posting about here today. You can add all sorts of goodies to these pendant trays, including Dimensional Magic. They did that for Halloween, and here’s how you make this fantastic necklace, straight from them!

Wicked Necklace Supplies

  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
  • Mod Podge Podgeable Metal Pendant, Oxidized Brass
  • Halloween Papers
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Small flat paintbrush
  • Rhinestones
  • Beaded Chain
  • Jump-ring
  • Clasp
  • Jewelry Pliers
  • Handful of black
  • Silver and Orange Beads
  • Head Pins
  • Wire Cutters

Wicked Necklace Mod Podge in Well Wicked Necklace Mod Podge the Paper1. Begin with a rectangle Pendant Tray. Choose your background paper. Trim the paper to fit inside the pendant tray. Use layers of paper if desired.

2. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the pendant tray and to the back of the background paper. Position the background paper in the tray. Smooth with your fingers. Apply a top-coat of Mod Podge.

Wicked Necklace Glue Rhinestones3. Using Mod Podge as a glue, attach gems to the design around the edge of the pendant well. Allow to dry for 2 hours.

Wicked Necklace Add Dimensional Magic Wicked Necklace Allow Dimensional Magic to Dry4. Fill in the pendant with Dimensional Magic. Begin around the outer edge and fill until the entire pendant is covered. Dry for 24 hours in an undisturbed and non-drafty place.

Wicked-Necklace-Bead-Board5. Create the necklace by first laying out all your beaded chain. Begin by attaching a clasp to the chain with jumprings.

6. Attach a jump ring to the bail on the pendant. Attach the pendant to the chain.

Wicked-Necklace-close-UP-Dangles7. Make beaded dangles by threading beads onto long headpins. Leaving enough room for making a loop, trim the end of the headpin. Using pliers, bend back the clipped end to form a loop, attach the loop to the pendant jumpring. Make as many as you wish. For this design we made 5 dangles.

Wicked Necklace 4Tip: While the Dimensional Magic is drying don’t move the pendant around or you might get air bubbles. If you do get an air bubble, use a sewing pin to pop it.

Mixed Media MasterpiecesI love reading and reviewing craft books. I’m sure some people wonder what the deal is with that, given that I run a blog. But the truth is, while I love craft blogs, there’s nothing like the feeling of a book in my hand. I have a HUGE craft book library and I value each and every one of them. I’d like to tell you about one that I recently added: Mixed Media Masterpieces with Jenny & Aaron.

I’ve actually been in a crafty rut for a little bit, so this came along at the perfect time. I just haven’t been feeling very creative or very motivated, and then I realized something. A few things, actually. Find out more by reading my top five favorite things about this book . . .

1. I’m encouraged to play. This is one of the main reasons I think I’m in a rut! This book made me realize I haven’t just taken out my supplies and played in quite awhile. When I first skimmed through the text, my first thought was “time to bust out the supplies and try a project!” I felt instantly motivated.

IMG_48672. I have a lot of the supplies on hand. I think there is a misconception, and I include myself in this, that mixed media requires special supplies. I was amazed when I read through the supply lists and realized “I have that! And I have that too!” I do have quite a bit of craft supplies, but nothing too crazy – so if you are like me and have a pretty good stash, you’ll find you’ve got what you need to do the projects. And if you don’t, substitute what you do have. Added bonus: you get to use up stash items to play!

IMG_48633. A lot of the projects are “useful.” Sure, a lot of mixed media projects are just for fun – but why not take the idea and turn it into something like a home decor item, gift, party decoration . . . you’ll get a lot of that in this book. I really love the bracelets. I’ve decorated bracelets before but the ones in this book are a bit more freehand – I can wait to experiment with those.

IMG_48694. You don’t have to be a mixed media artist to give it a try. I know a lot of people feel insecure about their “art skillz.” But that’s not the point. The point is to try something, to have fun, and to get creative. Jenny and Aaron provide instructions for you so that you don’t have to feel intimidated, but I encourage you to following along but also let your creativity go where it wants to.

IMG_48715. Lots of decoupage medium! Of course I’m going to love that! A lot of these projects allow you to play with Mod Podge. And of course some crafty favorites like washi tape and paper. I’m also fascinated with some of the other products in the book like distressing inks, that I know about but haven’t used often (and am eager to try).

IMG_4873If you can’t tell that I’m in love with Mixed Media Masterpieces, I totally am. Jenny and Aaron did an amazing job putting this book together, and I think this would be an amazing addition to your crafty library too. And because I love this book so much, I’m giving away a copy to one lucky reader below. Enter here:

Cactus craft - DIY collage artHello Mod Podge Rocks friends! It’s Dom from Crafted. Today I have a very simple tutorial for you.

I’m totally loving cactus motifs in artworks right now. The other thing I’m loving is raw wood. I combined those two and came up with this super simple collage art that is freakin, cute and so simple to create.

I think this cactus craft would look awesome as a set. Maybe three of them with different plants? 

catcus_art_0007_IMG_0116You will need:

  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • Sponge brush
  • Coloured paper
  • Small piece of plywood

catcus_art_0006_IMG_0117Step One

Cut some basic “petal” like shapes from some green card.

catcus_art_0005_IMG_0118Once you have a few of these in different sizes go ahead and cut pieces for the pot, spikes and flowers.

catcus_art_0004_IMG_0119Step Two

Place the basic plant and pot shapes where you want them on your board. Layer them so the joins are covered.

catcus_art_0003_IMG_0120Step Three

Glue the pieces down individually. Start with the pieces that are on the back “layer”.

catcus_art_0002_IMG_0122Step Four

Cover the entire surface of the block in Mod Podge.

catcus_art_0000_IMG_0127Step Five

Add the spikes and the flowers while the previous coat is still wet. With a smaller sponge brush dab a generous coat of Mod Podge to the cactus shape. This will hold the spikes as well as giving your plant some extra texture.

Make your own cardboard tube framesI know I’ve been talking a lot about decorating my studio lately, but the deal is that I’m searching for good ideas and keep finding them, and then I have to share them with you. And funny enough, I spent a long time saving paper tubes, and I kind of didn’t know what I was saving them for . . . and then I saw this project. Cardboard frames, made with tubes. This is perfect for a gallery wall and as you can probably guess, I have tons of pug photos to do it with. Now, this original tutorial wasn’t done with Mod Podge, it was done with white glue – but Mod Podge is a perfect substitute, and what’s I’ll use. This project is so easy you can have it done in a few hours. Instant decor, and that’s right up my alley. Learn how to make these simple frames below.

Decoupage marble fabric chairsI’ve been putting a lot of thought into the seating situation I’m going to have in my studio – it’s really just one big room, besides a front office, so I have to figure out some interesting solutions. While poking around I spotted these chairs on Design Sponge and thought, “wow, it’s so cool that modern bench has marbled seats!” I couldn’t believe what a lucky find. But it turns out that no . . . those seats aren’t marbled. I mean, they are, but only after someone added fabric and decoupage medium! I cannot even tell you how much I love this project – it may be my favorite piece of decoupage furniture yet. Can’t wait to grab the Podge and see what I can make look just as awesome.
