If there is one product that can perform so many tasks, inspire crafters everywhere, and create its own blog, Mod Podge it is.
Amy, from Mod Podge Rocks, recently created her own line of stencils that can be used in so many different ways. I loved them all but could think of 20 different projects to use with the polka dot stencil. Lucky for me, they are reusable, and so I really can use it for all 20 projects.Here are the different patterns available.
So I decided to start with something simple. Add some glitter to an old frame I had sitting around the house. Here is the lovely before.
I stuck the stencil in the middle of the frame and used some glitter glue that I had on hand and squeezed it into the little dots. Now some may say that this is more complicated because I had to squeeze glue into each and every dot. BUT They lined up so pretty with the stencil as a template. I was also making this with the assistance of my 5 year old, so I was not breaking out the glitter right then or I would be sneezing it out for weeks to come. That kid is a glitter machine when it comes to craft projects.
However, it would probably be faster and possibly easier to just use mod podge and then glitter powder on top. Regardless of the glitter method, you then remove the stencil and let it dry. Voila! Easy easy project.
And the after. This was my trial run for the stencils. Notice how the stencil wasn’t long enough to get my glitter on in one fowl swoop? I just removed it, washed off the glitter, and stuck it back on the bottom. Super easy. 10 minute project, then let it dry overnight. My kind of craft.
What would you make with these stencils?
