20 very easy craft ideas for beginners

If you are a beginning decoupager or crafter, welcome! I’m pleased to introduce you to your new addiction. There are so many things to do with Mod Podge – I can’t wait for you to see.

DIY Mod Podge Projects

If you are new to crafting, decoupage is going to be your best friend. It’s inexpensive to start and it’s relatively easy to use compared to other DIY craft supplies. There are so many Mod Podge uses, you aren’t going to believe it!

I think the best way to learn to use Mod Podge is to jump in (that’s what I did), so I’ve put together a collection of Mod Podge craft ideas that I believe will inspire you – from home decor to fashion to just plain crafty.

Tools You’ll Need

Before you get started, I highly recommend you check out my list of essential decoupage supplies. There are five things I suggest: good brushes, a silicone mat, a brayer, sharp scissors, and a water basin. I have other tools in that post that I recommend for Mod Podge projects, but the five I just recommended are my favorites and ones that I use every day.

The supplies I suggest are good to have around for all sorts of crafting, not just Mod Podge. I would recommend them for any beginning crafter.


Are you ready to dive in?? Now onto the Mod Podge crafts!

All of these craft ideas are relatively easy and as a beginner, you should be able to handle these for your first try. And if you should need a little instruction, please visit the formula guide or my learn how to Mod Podge article with an FAQ. I’m always here to help. Enjoy!

How do I stop the Mod Podge from being tacky? I covered a box & now it keeps sticking closed.

Hello! My email isn't in all caps btw haha. I have been psyched to use my new mode podge but I'm not sure if I got the right kind for the crafts i would like to try. I got the mode podge photo transfer medium. Can I still just use that kind to, for ex., glue down paper to a frame? Or what I've really been excited to do, make my own phone case? You just mode podge paper down on the pkain plastic case but I'm not sure if I can use this specific kind. Thanks!

Hi there! No, you can't use it to glue things down - just for transferring photos. It works like this: https://modpodgerocksblog.com/image-transfer-photo-block/

You'll need regular Mod Podge for what you are talking about :D Have fun!
