You can buy Mod Podge in several finishes and varieties, making it great for a wide range of projects. Just look at what you can do with it:

Dress up a denim jacket – Mod Podge is probably the last thing that comes to mind when it comes to customizing clothing, but Fabric Mod Podge was specifically designed for such applications. It might be a little stiff for a thin t-shirt, but for items denim and canvas sneakers it’s great. It’s also good for adding your own touch to blankets, pillows, fabric lampshades, and other household items.

Jewelry box – Easily transform an ordinary shoebox into a unique jewelry box. Glue scrapbooking paper to the outside of the box and lid with Mod Podge, coat to finish, and add some coordinating ribbon and you’ve got yourself a one of a kind jewelry box.

Make custom mousepads – Why pay someone else to put your photo or artwork on a mousepad when you can easily do it yourself. It’s a cinch to do it yourself! Just buy a plain mousepad and use Mod Podge to glue your picture to it. Add embellishments for a special touch, then coat it to finish.

Create beautiful picture frames – Decoupaged picture frames make beautiful home décor and treasured gifts. All you have to do is add some pretty fabric, customize it with lettering or embellishments, and coat with Mod Podge.

Create a faux oil painting – If you have a poster, photograph, or canvas project that you’d like to look like an oil painting, Mod Podge can do it. This is a great way to use up Mod Podge that you’ve let set out too long, because its thicker texture is just right. Or you can buy some Brushstroke Mod Podge, which was created for this specific purpose.

  4. variable data printing says:

    You can work sections at a time. I always do with larger areas so that my Mod Podge doesn’t dry too much before I stick the fabric down.

  5. I have painted with sharpie perm. markers a (primarily) red shark on my grandsons clear palastic water bottle. I’m thinking the permanent marker is probably going to wash off. Could I use mod podge to seal it? Have used it for years but never on a plastic item.

    please comment,,,.

  6. I have covered a journal cover with pictures that I like. Will putting a layer of Mod Podge over the pictures work to seal it?
