Mod Podge Car with Fabric is the Coolest

I really want a Mod Podge car! This cool car looks like it’s covered in fabric and decoupage medium. Would you ever do this to car?

I really want a Mod Podge car! This cool car looks like it's covered in fabric and decoupage medium. Would you ever Mod Podge a car?!

Okay, so I don’t know if this is really a Mod Podge automobile – but it looks like it. It definitely could be. I spotted it on Gypsy Purple, and I’m wondering how I can get my hands on it.

For those who don’t know, Jan Wetstone, the original creator of Mod Podge in 1967, decoupaged a car with sheets back in the day. She Mod Podged on a Volkswagen Beetle, just like the Gypsy Purple car!

During the Mod Podge 45th anniversary in 2012, I got a chance to speak with Jan and ask her about the car. I was so curious how it lasted and she said her son drove it for many years!

I just thought that was so cool – and here’s a picture of the car that Jan did with the sheets:

Someday I’m going to own a car like this. It may not be a Beetle, but I’m going to purchase something fun on the cheap and then add vintage sheets or fabric.

The biggest thing I’ve ever Mod Podged is a bookcase. So I ask you: what is the largest item you’ve ever Mod Podged? And would you drive a Mod Podge car??

I absolutely adore this car! I have an old GMC truck that I want to fix up and make it look just a little more girly, and I think this would be perfect to do. Does anyone know how to do this or a website for this? :)

Mod Podged a couple of tables. One with maps of Long Island (my hometown), and the other with maps and newspaper on the legs...both awesome! Too bad we can't post pics :(

While in Israel and Egypt, we saw a lot of cars decorated like this, can't remember why, but, it's a part of their culture.

I love this....such 60's flare and on a bug even. Love it, love it! I think the biggest thing I have ever podged was a childs table top. Remember strawberyy shortcake? Yep she had the whole design going on (my daughter that is). bedding, curtains and an extra pillow case podged to the top of her child sized play table. It was fun.
