Mod Podge is an indispensable medium for crafters of all kinds. Not only does Mod Podge act as a glue, it also works as a sealer and a finish. The original Mod Podge formula is available alongside other formulas meant for paper, fabric, paint and outdoor projects. Or look for sparkle or glow-in-the-dark Mod Podge.

Paper Ideas

Pull out your collection of paper for découpage using Mod Podge. Ideas for projects include covering mirrors, plastic fruit, coasters and glass vases. If you are tired of using scrapbook pages and wallpaper, take a trip to your local second-hand store and scour the used book shelves. Recipes, storybooks, math texts and music books will add a little spice to your projects. One idea is to cover glass vases in paper, then, instead of using them for flowers, add a few inches of water and a tea-light for a glowing candle holder.


Use Mod Podge to create a bounty of seasonal items to give away as gifts or keep for your own seasonal collection. Picture frames are a sure bet for Mother's Day and Father's Day, especially if you get the kids involved. Have the kids draw a picture, use Mod Podge to adhere it to the frame, and put a picture of the kids with Mom or Dad into the frame. Or use Mod Podge with Halloween-themed images to create buckets for trick-or-treating or with Christmas-themed images for ornaments.


Select a piece of furniture, for instance an end table, small dresser or chair, and Mod Podge it with a scrap of fabric or wallpaper. For an end table, Mod Podge the tabletop and paint the rest of the table in a contrasting colour. For a dresser, remove the drawers and paint the dresser in a fabulously bright colour like orange, red or lime green. Use Mod Podge to affix a fabric or paper in a bold pattern (vintage designs and modern designs work well here). For a chair, Mod Podge the seat and paint the rest of it in a solid shade to enhance the fabric or paper.


Look for plain pieces of jewellery you can enhance with Mod Podge. One idea is to decorate thick bangle bracelets using Mod Podge and any other embellishments you have on hand. You can find wood and plastic bracelets at craft stores. Use up your favourite scraps of wallpaper, fabric and scrapbook pages. You can also make earrings the same way. Make a matching ring and pendant necklace for a gift to a close friend. Choose a classic pattern she will be able to wear time and again.
