An simple craft craft with inexpensive items to hold your pretty flowers
These were made through a free class at a local library out of dollar store items,
This is a simple craft you can make with just a few items from the dollar store and decorate with Mod Podge and glitter.
Paint on Modge Podge in small sections as it dries quickly
NOTE ON MODGE PODGE: For this project, we used Modge Podge Hard, but any type would work. If you were to use the same technique on a drinking glass, you could use dishwasher safe Mod Podge.
The instructor indicated although it is not indicated on the Mod Podge bottles, but found out when they contacted the manufacturer that it takes 30 days for Mod Podge to fully cure and even dishwasher safe Mod Podge will come off over time.
You can use any kind of loose glitter, but before sprinkling on the glass put a large piece of paper underneath. Use a separate piece of paper for each color of glitter.
This way when you shake on the glitter when it falls off you can easily put back in a shaker by bending the paper in the center.
Recheck by looking inside the glass to make sure all of the areas that should be coated are and if not, put on more Modpodge and glitter.
(Sorry, didn't get a picture of this).
To help hold the glitter in place, you can cover with another coat of Mod Podge. Keep in mind though it will dull the glitter a bit. I put a coat over the top on both of my projects.
If you put on a topcoat, you also might want to put tape over the top of the area that is to be clear to be sure don't get Mod Podge on it, but if you are careful it should not be too bad and you can scrape it off the glass.
