DIY: Modge Podge

Posted by Lily Kay at 12:52 PM

On a recent DIY shopping trip for supplies for my latest attempt at being crafty (look for a blog post soon on what I made. Hint: has to do with organizing necklaces) I stared in amazement at the cost of Modge Podge or in other words decoupage goup. Why is something that is so simple to make selling for such a high price? If you guys need to decoupage your lastest project consider making your own modge podge.

What you need:
  • Water
  • Elmers Glue
  • Mixing jar & something to mix with.
Yep that really is it. Didn't I tell you its super easy and cheap?

How to make it:

All you need to do is take your mixing jar and add 1 part glue and 1 part water. Depending on how much modge podge you need you just make sure 50% is glue and 50% is water. Mix and voila, you now haver perfectly perfect modge podge. I promise. I just did two semi-extensive projects with my homemade modge podge and it worked perfectly.

Dont Forget:

You can always alter it to meet your specific needs. Adding more or less water or glue can give you a thicker or thinner formula. Also remember it dries perfectly clear so no worries about ruining your project.

Modge Podge away...and for cheap!
