Mod Podge is such a fun craft medium to work with. Have you ever tried it? My favourite use for Mod Podge is to attach trim or fabric to objects to give them a unique look. Let me show you how to embellish simple garden containers – like a bucket, vase and watering can – with Mod Podge and lace trim. The little addition of lace makes these containers look so beautiful and unique! Also, make sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to see how some other bloggers used Mod Podge in this month’s 12 Months of DIY challenge.
To decoupage lace trim onto metal containers, first ensure that your container is clean and grease-free. I just used some cleaning spray and a paper towel to wipe down my tin watering can.
Next, apply some Mod Podge liberally with a regular brush or a foam brush onto the part of your container where your lace trim will go. I used Mod Podge Gloss for this project.
After that, place your lace trim over the Mod Podge and press it down firmly. I used this gorgeous of vintage lace I found at a thrift store to liven up my watering can.
Finally, gently paint a coat of Mod Podge over the lace and the rest of the item’s surface. By painting over the entire surface of the container, the final finish will be consistent. In my case, the Mod Podge made my watering can have a lovely glossy finish.
Isn’t it such a pretty look? I also put a little bit of lace trim with Mod Podge around a tin planter and a metal vase. It’s such a delicate addition to all of my garden containers!
Now it’s time to see the rest of the DIY Mod Podge project ideas from my Canadian blogging friends!
