Top 10 Mod Podge craft ideas of 2013

There’s been a lot of decoupage happening this year my friends! When I started this blog over ten years ago, I had no idea that I’d still be doing it in 2020.

I wasn’t sure if there would be enough projects to keep me going for that entire year. Boy, was I wrong! You all love Mod Podge and you love it hard.

So I went back to the last decade to gather the most popular Mod Podge craft ideas from this blog, and here they are. If you are a beginning decoupager, you can accomplish most of these – perhaps a bowl or mason jars to start?
