They sat until I was digging around in my fabric box looking for something to finish another project and I came across some scraps of colorful, sheer-like fabric. A woman I know was going through her dress-making stage and gave me all of her scraps for my quilting projects, but this material was just not suitable for quilting. It was too pretty to just toss, even if the scraps were small, so I hung onto it hoping to find a solution.
That was when I remembered my grandmother, "Grama," and her love of Mod Podge. When I was very young she took a cardboard reindeer mold and showed me how to mod podge Christmas fabric onto it to create a decoration. That was fun. I wonder if I could do that with ornaments...
|Yes, my fingers are always covered in spray paint.|
It took a while, so I only made three...for now.
I used Mod Podge for another craft this weekend, one that I've been meaning to do for a long time: make coasters. I had leftover tile from my chalkboard coaster project that I made as Christmas gifts for a few people. (I was really obsessed with chalkboard spray paint in November and December, but that's another story.) Using the tile, pretty paper, Mod Podge, and some Anita's Polyurethane Sealant, I set about making some coasters as gifts.
Regardless, it was a fun and easy project, even if it took a long time for things to dry between coats. If they really turn out, then I'll add them to the gift box in the closet -- I always need a small supply of gifts on hand. One never knows when one might suddenly need a gift!
