I really think you are going to like this post. I'm not just fancying myself, I really do. It was a fun to use Mod Podge for something other than gluing down – I actually made Mod Podge DIY window clings that you can put on any vase or in any window. The supplies are so minimal, I had everything laying around the house. Can you say budget crafting at its finest? I hope you'll make many and stick them all over everything. I highly recommend it. Here's how they are made. (see the end of this post for a video on how to make DIY window clings using food coloring!)
DIY Window Clings
Gather These Supplies
- Mod Podge Gloss
- FolkArt or Apple Barrel paint in your choice of colors
- Gallery Glass Leading Blanks
- Hole punch, die cutter, craft knife – something to cut shapes with
- Palette knife
Squeeze some paint (used Apple Barrel Parakeet) into the Mod Podge. Stir it around with a brush.
There are three methods for cutting your Mod Podge/paint clings. Craft knife – although I learned a big lesson. Take the Mod Podge/paint OFF of the leading blank before cutting it. Or you will cut the leading blank. You can cut on a mat with your craft knife.
Die cutter . . . can you believe this works? I rolled this stuff right through my Sizzix Big Shot and it cut like a dream!! This is how I decorated the vase in the large photo.
Check out the holiday DIY window clings I did – Christmas lights with snow, and then a Christmas tree with hole punched ornaments. I'm picturing Mod Podge clings all over Mod Podge Command Central, so that it looks like a circus rather than a place to live. I had a blast doing it – what do you think?
