I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but I have the cutest easy holiday project using the Mod Podge Glitter Extreme formula that I want to share with you! And what's really great about this project is that all of the items are easy to find, and you can adapt it for any age or ability level!
What I used:
- Mod Podge Glitter Exteme
- Mod Podge 2 1/4" Brush Applicator
- holiday scrapbook paper
- paper mache letters - 12" J, 6" Y
- metallic cord trim
- 6" grapevine wreath
- sparkly decorations for wreath
- repositionable spray adhesive
- hot glue gun
- Misc: scissors, pencil
1) First, I traced the letters onto the scrapbook paper - making a front and back, as well as strips the same width as the sides. The strips will need to be glued together in order to be long enough to go all the way around the letter edges. I used contrasting paper, but you can use the same paper if you like.
2) Since I wanted to be able to reposition my paper if needed, I used repositionable spray adhesive on the letters. Then I carefully applied the scrapbook paper cutouts, repositioning them as needed.
3) Next, I used the Mod Podge Brush Applicator to apply Mod Podge Glitter Extreme to all of the scrapbook paper on the letters.
4) After the Mod Podge dried, I used a hot glue gun to apply metallic cord trim around the front edges of the letters.
5) For the wreath, I just attached ready-made holiday trimmings. Love those glittery stars!
And that's it! So easy, and it looks great on a fireplace mantel, inside a large wreath, or laying down on a table!
1) Instead of using scrapbook paper to cover the letters, you could just paint them.
2) For a more "rustic" look, you could just apply the Mod Podge directly on the paper mache letters without covering them with anything.
3) You can spell out any word - Merry, Holiday, Peace, Noel, Cheer, Santa, Jesus, Holy, etc.
It's no surprise to me that Mod Podge is the number one all-in-one glue, sealer, and finish. There are so many formulas from which to choose! And it's easy to find it at retailers nationwide as well as on Plaid's website.
