Tutorial : Mod Podge Glitter Magic

Hello Friends!

Today is tutorial day and I (Priya) will show you how to make glitter embellishments and home decor items with Mod Podge..

I am upcycling my empty kitchen jars and turning them into b'ful tea light holders which you can use during dinner parties, Diwali, Christmas and can also be a gifting option..

Here we go!

Supplies you need:

1. Mod Podge
2. Empty Jars
3. Glitter of any brand (MS is very fine)
4. Paint Brush
5. Big Shot Cutting Machine
6. Cutting Dies
7. MS 3-in-1 Butterfly Punch

Step 1: Pour mod podge on thick card stock (I have used 300 gsm)

Step 2: Spread it out with a paint brush

 Step 3: Sprinkle glitter generously onto the spreaded mod podge

It's more easy to make glitter paper of different colors at once.. Shake off the extra glitter before pouring the new color.. 

Step 4: Once the paper gets dry, add another layer of mod podge to lock the glitter well..

Step 5: Coat all the colors well..

Don't worry about the streaks and the whiteness of Mod podge. Everything will become transparent once the Mod Podge gets dry

Step 6: Once the paper is completely dry, use your punches, Big shot, scissors to create embellishments..

Step 7: Give a nice Mod Podge coat to the jar and stick your glitter embellishments.. Once it's dry, you can coat it again with a thin layer of mod podge. It will add another few years to the glitter jar's life!

Here is the final product with a tea light lit up inside.. It's adoring my center table so well!

I clicked another pic with lights switched off! Pic is not doing the justice to the beauty of this jar in dark room.. It looks so romantic in real! ;)

I hope you guys will give it a try.. I am in love with these.. Now I am waiting eagerly for my sauce/dip jars to get empty!

This is it from my side... but there is lot more happening here at Crafter's corner.. CC has turned 1 this month!! We have organized a Crafty Bingo Party!!!.. Participate and win Prizes!
