Mod Podge – the all-in-one glue, sealer and finish that was born in the ’60s in Atlanta, Georgia – is one of the most popular craft materials out there. I like Mod Podge because it’s really versatile and really pretty forgiving to work with, and you can up cycle and decorate things like this party beverage bucket:
The Big Book of Mod Podge: Decoupage Made Easy is a craft book that you’re going to want to have handy on your bookshelves because it’s contains both reference guides and project inspirations. I really like the section that explains all the Mod Podge formulas and when to use each one …like the new Mod Podge Dishwasher-Safe formula (hooray!).
And then it clearly explains how to properly decoupage different materials like fabric, paper, newsprint, book pages, tissue paper, photos and more.
There are simple and clever decoupage projects in here like this fun confetti bowl:
There are holiday projects like this glow-in-the-dark mummy trick-or-treat bowl:
And everyday projects like these handmade beads by my buddy and jewelry craft book author Candie Cooper:
The book covers a range of decoupage techniques so even though some of the projects aren’t necessarily my design style I can still apply the technique to my own project.
Pretty much everything can be decoupaged, so get a copy of this book and get started!
