You just never know what you’re going to find on this blog – one day it might be Mod Podged shoes or a piece of furniture . . . and then the next day, an altered ukulele! This project is from Jenny at Crescendoh.
I’ve never met her, but I saw her across the room at CHA this past winter. It’s okay – we are Brave Girls’ sisters, so we might as well have been friends forever.
Jenny is so talented, and I love her blog for every piece of art that she does, not just Mod Podge. But she’s good at that too, and this ukulele is a perfect example. Here’s what she had to say about making it:
“I love that my coffee-dyed doilies have had such longevity in terms of some of my projects of late. And coffee-dyed doilies are what I turned to to alter my little ole ukulele.
After figuring out doily placement, I adhered it to the instrument with Mod Podge.
I first applied a couple of layers of white gesso and then adhered the doilies.
Once dry, I took a permanent black marker to write lyrics to one of my favorite songs. (Can you guess what the song might be?)
And then to tone it down a bit, I followed it with another application of white gesso and then a final coat of Mod Podge.
And then of course to finish, I added white polka dots of white gesso to the front.”
So there you go! Would you try a DIY ukulele like this one? Let me know in the comments!
