In today’s post, I received free supplies from Plaid and Modge Podge Rocks to complete my craft and tutorial. As always, opinions are my own.
So a really nifty thing happened. I got to try out the new product line from Amy at Mod Podge Rocks. Turns out this crafty gal and blogger I love now has her own, super nifty line of self adhesive stencils from Mod Podge. How cool is that?
And here are the nifty patterns you can choose from. Now I totally waffled on whether I wanted to try the wood grain or the starlite which I eventually decided to go with. BUT good news is you can buy these babies at Michael’s AND you have a chance to win your very own at the end of this post! Woot!
I’ve started making over my master bedroom. You see I’ve always been a matchy matchy kind of a girl and I’ve decided to flip the script and get some color in my room. Well, first I’m going to paint the walls white and then add lots of color to the room :)
Two of my favorites on my color palette are teal and purple and when I saw this teal glass jar at Wal-Mart it had to be mine. And then I saw pretty purple glitter diamonds and everything just came together really, really well. Now I just have to burn this baby down so I can use it as a catchall that I’m super stoked about.
For this project you will need:
- candle, jar or other glass item (though you can use the stencils on just about anything, including fabric!)
- Mod Podge matte
- Mod Podge spouncers (these things are my favorite spouncers EVER)
- fine glitter
- Mod Podge Rocks stencil
First wrap your stencil around your glass. Now, you see how I have glitter on the inside of my stencil? It’s because I totally messed up and set my stencil down in glitter when I ripped it off because I was pretty darn excited. Whoops! Take more care and you’ll have a perfect seal when you apply your stencil!
Next spounce your Mod Podge onto the glass over the stencil…
Covering the entire area you want to glitter.
REMOVE the stencil and set somewhere that isn’t a pile of glitter.
Apply glitter to the still wet Mod Podge.
Tap off the excess and set someplace to dry (I tend to favor a window sill with direct sunlight).
When it’s good and dry, remove the excess glitter by brushing away with a paintbrush or spraying with canned air (like for cleaning your office supplies).
And that, my friends, is that. The next time I hit up Michael’s I’m totally getting the wood-grain stencil and probably that neat Moroccan style with the diamonds inside of circles. My head is spinning with the possibilities!
And now, the best part… You can win your own randomly patterned stencil (but if you comment with your favorite we’ll try to comply :)
