Decoupage

I had some ModPodge sitting around the house so I decided to make an attempt at decoupage.

What you’ll need:

  • Modpodge
  • sponge or paint brush
  • colored paper
  • scissors
  • patience
  • paper towel
  • Windex

Obviously you need to start by finding all of your supplies. Next step is to clean the inside or outside of your jar. I put the paper on the inside, so I cleaned the inside.

Next you cut, or rip, up your colored paper.

Start at the bottom with a layer of Modpodge in the jar. Place your paper on the Modpodge then paint another layer on top of the paper.

Keep at this until it’s all the way up to the top.

Trim the edges and let it dry.

Bam. Decorative jar for whatever you’d like. I wouldn’t recommend putting a candle in there, just in case Modpodge is flammable. Maybe a flameless candle. That would be cool.
