Mod Podge is a great medium to use as a glue and sealer on your découpage projects.
It’s Jill Cornell here today with a tutorial I created for the Mod Podge Rocks blog. I took a simple papier-mâché house and transformed it into a little love nest home décor piece for Valentine’s Day. (I used the XOXO collection from American Crafts on this project.)
The most difficult part of the whole project was measuring and trimming the paper to fit the house. A craft knife is the perfect tool to make it easier. The Mod Podge was applied on the back of each paper piece and then smoothed down over the house. Then, I applied a coat of Mod Podge as a sealer. On the roof of the house, I also applied Mod Podge Dimensional Magic as an adhesive before I sprinkled the roof with shaved ice glitter. I also hot glued pom-pom trim to the roof.
This was a fun cluster of embellishments to put together. The house was wrapped with two different kinds of ribbon and then a flower was hot glued to the center. I also used a couple of stickpins to hold the die-cut tag in place.
The project took a few hours to make, but it would be easy enough to create an assembly line to make multiple houses. Please stop by the Mod Podge Rocks blog to see my complete tutorial.
