DIY Home Decor with Mod Podge

Creating home decor with Mod Podge is nice because the learning curve is small – you don't need an advanced skill set to accomplish something pretty. Mod Podge is so beginner friendly, and perfect for using on new or refurbished surfaces.

The typical process is to select a surface to Mod Podge, pick paper or fabric to put on that surface, and then choose your Mod Podge formula (here's my formula guide).

I do recommend practicing before starting home decor projects with decoupage. You'll want to make sure you know how to use Mod Podge so that your craft is worthy of displaying in your home!
