Use a Mod Melt mold and embossing tools to create simple, gem drop DIY earrings with a two tone copper & gold effect! Perfect for yourself or as a gift.Hello friends! This is Aki from Minted Strawberry – and I’m so delighted to be share my ideas here at Mod Podge Rocks! Today I’ll be showing you how you can make simple gem drop DIY earrings with a Mod Melt mold and some embossing tools. I love two-tone effects – specially in jewelry. I was thrilled when I found out I can make a double-dipped effect using embossing materials, so I tried it with two metallic colors I love most – copper and gold!

Materials:

  • Mod Melts Gems Mold
  • Polymer clay in white
  • X-acto knife
  • Heat gun
  • Embossing powder in Copper and Gold
  • Embossing ink
  • Eye pins
  • Earring posts
  • Jump rings
  • E6000 Glue
  • Jewelry pliers
  • Wire cutter

Step 1. Knead your polymer clay until pliable with your hands, and use your gem mold to make gems in the shape that you like. Chill the polymer clay in the fridge while still in the mold to handle it better, about 20 minutes. Make two sets of each shape.

copper-gold-gem-drop-earrings-12Step 2. Cut off the excess clay with an x-acto knife or box cutter.

copper-gold-gem-drop-earrings-11Step 3. Attach an eye pin on the sides where you want your shapes to connect using bent-nose jewelry pliers for convenience. Make sure the clay is chilled before you do this step to prevent the gems from deforming. Bake your clay according to the package’s directions.

copper-gold-gem-drop-earrings-10Step 4. After it cools, press about half of the gem (the side without the eye pin) in an embossing ink pad like in the photo below.

copper-gold-gem-drop-earrings-9Step 5. Next, dip it into your copper embossing powder and tap the excess out. Using your heat gun, melt the embossing powder until it’s shiny and flat (it takes about 1-2 minutes).

copper-gold-gem-drop-earrings-8Step 6. Do the same with the rest of the white parts, except this time dip it into the gold embossing powder. Brush off the powder in the areas where you don’t want the gold in (like the majority of the copper areas).

copper-gold-gem-drop-earrings-7After melting, this is how it’ll look like. I love the little dots that you can see when you look closely, where the gold and copper meet. You have the option of coating the back as well with embossing powder, but I only did the back of the teardrops for mine.

copper-gold-gem-drop-earrings-6Step 7. Since the back of the rectangular gems won’t be seen, I skipped coating it in embossing powder. You may choose to do so if it bothers you. After embossing your gems, attach an earring post on the back of the top earring piece like in the photo below using some E6000 glue.

copper-gold-gem-drop-earrings-5Step 8. Finally, attach both of the pieces with a jump ring. And you’re done!

Use a Mod Melt mold and embossing tools to create simple, gem drop DIY earrings with a two tone copper & gold effect! Perfect for yourself or as a gift.That’s it! Make them in different color and gem combinations for yourself or as a gift for friends or even mom for Mother’s Day! It’s guaranteed to be a unique, one-of-a-kind gift that is sure to please.

Use cool cork letters and scraps of pretty vintage wallpaper to make these fun DIY magnets - they make such great, personalized gifts!Hi everyone! This is Ashlee from My So Called Crafty Life, and I am so excited to be here at Mod Podge Rocks today to share a fun and easy tutorial with you all! I am going to show you how to make these fun vintage wallpaper decoupaged cork letter magnets. I was at Michaels the other day and picked up a pack of their wonderful little cork letters. I thought they would make fun magnets. Since I love to decoupage, I thought I’d cover them with something fabulous. My hoard of vintage wallpaper scraps did the trick, and now I have the cutest fridge on the block!

Materials:

  • Cork Letters (I bought mine at Michaels)
  • Mod Podge Matte Medium
  • Vintage Wallpaper Scraps
  • Pencil
  • Precision Scissors or a craft knife and self healing mat
  • Tiny Extra Strong Magnets (I bought mine at Michaels)
  • E-6000

Instructions:

16-DSC_3110 15-DSC_3114 14-DSC_3116The first thing you will need to do is trace your letters onto your scraps. Place your cork letter face down onto the back side of your wallpaper scrap. Trace the letter with a pencil.

13-DSC_3117 12-DSC_3122 11-DSC_3124Next, cut out your letter with either precision (fine tip) scissors or a craft knife. Cut a little bit inside the lines so the edges will not be extending over the edge of the cork.

10-DSC_3126Now, flip your wallpaper letter over and brush a thin layer of Mod Podge Matte onto the back side with a brush. Smooth your wallpaper letter onto the face of the cork letter. Smooth out and bubbles or wrinkles.

09-DSC_3130 08-DSC_3132Seal the wallpaper front of each letter by brushing on a layer of your Mod Podge Matte.

07-DSC_3158Once the letters are dry, you can add the magnets. Flip over all of your letters. Dab a bit of E6000 to the back of each letter where you would like to place the magnet.

06-DSC_3159

Use cool cork letters and scraps of pretty vintage wallpaper to make these fun DIY magnets - they make such great, personalized gifts!To finish, press each magnet into your bit of glue on each letter. Let the glue cure for at least 24 hours. Then you are ready to play!

Use cool cork letters and scraps of pretty vintage wallpaper to make these fun DIY magnets - they make such great, personalized gifts!

Use cool cork letters and scraps of pretty vintage wallpaper to make these fun DIY magnets - they make such great, personalized gifts!

Use cool cork letters and scraps of pretty vintage wallpaper to make these fun DIY magnets - they make such great, personalized gifts!I just adore my little magnet set! Apparently my hubby does too, since every time I walk by the fridge there is something new and snarky spelled out. I think these little magnets are great to just keep on the fridge as they are for your kids (or big kids) to play with. They would also be super sweet on a vintage tin magnet board. I like the chunk of them, but if you would like a more streamlined look you could always use the little wood letters you can get at the craft store that are thin. Vintage wallpaper is one of my favorite things in the whole world. Etsy is a great place to find scrap packs and even the occasional roll. I do hope some of you all will decoupage your own magnet set sometime!

A big Thank You to Amy for having me over today! If you all would like to see more of my work you can find me on my blog, My So Called Crafty Life, Here. You can also check out my shop, or find me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

How to build planters using paversI am the first person to admit that I am not a do-it-yourselfer by nature. Which in my family feels a little bit weird because my parents can build anything. Don’t get me wrong – they passed on some good skills to me. I can knit and sew and, as you can see, decoupage . . . but I didn’t learn the DIY part. And the thing is, I want to learn! But I don’t know where to begin. Does anyone else feel that way?

For me the best way to learn is to watch someone do something and then do it myself. I’ve been wanting to spruce up my porch a bit and that is when I heard about an awesome class that The Home Depot is teaching: how to build a paver planter! So cool, right? The Home Depot actually does these type of classes monthly, called “Do it Herself Workshops,” and they are perfect for people like me. People who want to get the skills and confidence to be a DIYer. Each class offers step-by-step instructions and hands on experience learning to do simple décor and easy home improvements. Do-It-Herself Workshops are held monthly at all The Home Depot store locations and empower women with the skills and knowledge to take their home improvement project plans from dreams to done. Isn’t that awesome?

So along those lines, I was able to receive instruction on how to build a paver planter, and I’m excited to show you how to do it today! It’s so easy. Let’s begin.

IMG_5841Gather These Supplies

  • Four 12 x 12 pavers
  • Two 8 foot 2 x 2s
  • A circular saw
  • A power drill and bits
  • Caulking gun and construction adhesive
  • Utility knife
  • Sandpaper block
  • Paintbrush
  • Stain
  • Tape measure
  • Pencil
  • Gloves
  • Goggles
  • 2 bungee cords
  • 3″ exterior deck screws
  • Small roll of landscaping fabric
  • Soil and plants!

IMG_5842 IMG_5843The first step is to cut your 2 x 2s into four pieces of 16″ and eight pieces of 12″. If you don’t know how to use a saw – don’t worry. The Do It Herself workshop is interactive and hands-on! It’s a great opportunity to fine tune your DIY skills and pick up tips and advice from the pros.

IMG_5844 IMG_5845 IMG_5846You are then going to sand and stain your wood. I’ve always found the easy way to stain is to brush it on and wipe off the excess with a cloth. Let everything dry.

IMG_5850Pre-drill and countersink the 2 x 2 pieces together, with the 16˝ pieces forming the legs, and the 12˝ pieces forming the support between the legs. This is where me and a friend of mine who was helping went off the grid a little bit.

We screwed together the base of the frame first. Then we did two sides separately:

IMG_5847 IMG_5848 IMG_5849We placed a thick bead of adhesive along the inside edges of the frame, added the paver, and screwed it all together (be careful not to get the adhesive on the paver or wood frame). As I said, we made the bottom, and then in this step we did two sides.

IMG_5852 IMG_5853We then set the pavers in a square as shown, so that we could drop the base right on top. We added adhesive – placed the base in – and then set the remaining screws. We then placed a bungee cord around the entire planter to hold it together and let it dry overnight!

And guess what . . . ? It was so fun and easy that we made TWO!

DSC_0014 DSC_0024To finish, you’ll line the planters with landscaping fabric and add the plants of your choice. You can also drop pots directly into the planters.

DSC_0025 DSC_0019 DSC_0026Now that I’m done I feel like a DIY whiz! I’m ready to tackle other projects. So I’m going to tell you what you need to do – grab a girlfriend (or two or more) and head to The Home Depot on the third Thursday of each month for The Home Depot’s DIH Workshop.

I'm a huge fan of Kate Spade and her famous polka dots. In this DIY frame project I gave a $1 Michaels surface a Kate-inspired makeover and it looks great!Hi, it’s Courtney with Crafts by Courtney. Are you ready for a new craft project?? I am! Today I’m stepping out of my coastal comfort zone and sharing another LOVE of mine . . . POLKA DOTS! I’m giving a quick makeover to a frame I got for $1.00 at Michaels!

I’m a huge fan of Kate Spade and her famous polka dots. I wanted to give this DIY frame a “Kate Spade” inspired makeover, using mint paint, polka dots and a cute little dragonfly. Of course I had to add a little bling with some sparkly gold glitter!

For this project you’re going to need:

Supplies

  • Wood frame
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Mod Podge Matte
  • Paint
  • Glitter
  • Wooden dragonfly
  • Scissors
  • Foam brush

Getting Started

I love browsing the aisles at Michaels, I never know what I’m going to walk out with. On a recent trip I found this adorable frame and cute wooden dragonfly. The frame was $1.00 and the dragonfly was .50 cents, total score!

I headed home to give this frame a simple “Kate Spade” inspired makeover!

Kate-Spade-Frame

Step 1 – Paint Your Frame

I pulled out one of my favorite colors of chalk paint to paint my frame. I painted my sofa table with this color and just loved it. I knew it would be perfect for the look I’m going for.

I did two coats and let each one dry for 20 minutes.

Step 2 – Cut and Add Scrapbook Paper
I found this cool polka dot scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby a couple months ago. I’ve been waiting for the perfect project to use it on.

Kate-Spade-Frame3I measured and cut out a 5×7 piece and added it to my frame. See super simple!!

Step 3 – Add Your Glitter

Now it’s time to add your glitter!

I used my “handy dandy” Mod Podge and painted it on the dragonfly, making sure to get the sides. Then I sprinkled my glitter over top!

Kate-Spade-Frame9

Step 4 – Finishing Touches

Finally to finish up this project, just add a little Mod Podge to the back of the dragonfly and firmly press onto the frame. I let the Mod Podge dry 30 minutes before displaying the frame.

I'm a huge fan of Kate Spade and her famous polka dots. In this DIY frame project I gave a $1 Michaels surface a Kate-inspired makeover and it looks great!Such a cute and simple project. I just adore how the frame turned out, gotta love the color combinations!

I'm a huge fan of Kate Spade and her famous polka dots. In this DIY frame project I gave a $1 Michaels surface a Kate-inspired makeover and it looks great!One of my favorite things I love about this project is that it was less then $2.00 to make!! Remember I only paid $1.00 for the frame and .50 cents for the dragonfly. I already had all the other supplies on hand! Now I can set it on the bookshelf in the living room.

Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

boat-shoes-11I’m pretty sure I live in the boat shoe capital of the world. I think it’s one of those “it’s a southern thing; you wouldn’t understand” type deals. I never really wanted a pair UNTIL I saw these . . . I mean, they have polka dots. And if you live in the south (or anywhere, really) and boat shoes are a crucial part of your wardrobe, this will prevent you from having to purchase a new pair when yours give out. You’ll also have a completely unique pair that no one else will have, and that’s pretty cool. To learn how to make these babies, visit Kate’s post below. I’d also encourage you to check out more Mod Podge shoes, because there’s a whole lot of them on this site. Enjoy!

Learn how to decorate a simple wood plant stand from the craft store using paper, decoupage medium, and adhesive stencils - AND it's waterproof!This is one of those items that in my craft stash for awhile. And by “one of those items” I mean the wood plant stand. I got all caught up at the craft store and, in a frenzy of throwing things into my cart, this guy jumped in. I realized if I wanted to make it into a proper plant stand that I would need to use some Outdoor Mod Podge, along with other supplies of course. So I dug around and made it happen! And I even got to use my Mod Podge Rocks Peel n Stick Stencils, so that was thrilling too. Here’s how I did it.

Gather These Supplies

IMG_3556Measure the wood slats on the top of your plant stand. Using the craft knife and ruler, cut out enough paper to cover the slats (I used four strips). Set the paper aside.

IMG_3563Paint the top of the plant stand with warm white and the base with green. Paint several coats and let them dry. You don’t absolutely HAVE to use the outdoor paint, but I highly recommend it.

IMG_3637 IMG_3638Apply the polka dot peel n’ stick stencil to one side of the plant stand, taping off any areas that you don’t want paint to get onto. I just used washi tape as my “stencil tape” – and I smoothed down the stencil thoroughly.

IMG_3639Use a spouncer to apply the warm white paint to the stencil. Peel up the stencil immediately, wash and return to the backer sheet. 

IMG_3641Let the paint dry on the plant stand and repeat on the other side.

IMG_3642Apply the strips of scrapbook paper to the top of the plant stand using Mod Podge Outdoor. Let dry for 15 – 20 minutes, then put on a top coat. Let dry.

IMG_3645Give your plant stand several coats of Mod Podge Outdoor, letting them dry in between.

IMG_3646Finish it off by adding ribbon to the ends with craft glue.

Learn how to decorate a simple wood plant stand from the craft store using paper, decoupage medium, and adhesive stencils - AND it's waterproof! Learn how to decorate a simple wood plant stand from the craft store using paper, decoupage medium, and adhesive stencils - AND it's waterproof!You’re all done! The only thing to remember – water can get on the slats and your project will be fine, you just don’t want it to pool there for too long. Wipe it away so your project doesn’t get damaged.

Have fun and happy spring!
