Mod Podged Bowl

Posted on: November 18th, 2011 by ssteinruck No Comments

I'm still a beginner Mod Podger. But I really really like it! I posted about repurposing plastic food containers awhile back. Well here is another project I did with a small container.

I used a scrap of fabric, and just folded it up around and inside the bowl, trimming where I needed to. I Mod Podged it to the plastic, then sealed the outside with Mod Podge so it's smooth. The pattern on the fabric is very easy to work with - no stripes to match up or anything. And it matches my first Mod Podge project. A few more things done in this fabric, and I'll have a complete matching set of organizing containers!

Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

My First Mod Podge

Posted on: October 31st, 2011 by ssteinruck 1 Comment

Awhile back, I snagged a sturdy Lysol box from Costco. I needed a place for magazines that wasn't where the dog could get them (because she would eat anything.) So I put this very unattractive box in my studio and put magazines in it.

And it sat like that for 2 months. Functional, but ugly.

So today I decided to cover it with pretty fabric I had in my stash. Here's how I did it.

First I spray painted box so the lettering wouldn't show through the fabric.

I laid out fabric and wrapped it around the box, using binder clips and clothespins to hold it in place while I pondered how in the world to do this.

A few short measurements and daring cuts into the fabric and I had my plan. One side at a time, I Mod Podged the fabric to the box, using a lint roller to smooth out any wrinkles.

Otis was a big help holding down the fabric. (Yes, I know he's huge!)

Batah bing batah boom – I have a pretty box. It's not perfect and the pattern of the fabric is very forgiving. But now my free functional box is all glammed up.

Hmmm.... What should I Mod Podge next?!
