We all know how expensive Mod Podge is at the craft store, right? And since there are so many projects which use it, I thought I could find a homemade version online. Love pinterest! This is seriously the easiest DIY project I have ever done.
- A Jar (I rescued an empty Tostitos Creamy Spinach Dip Jar YUMMM which was on its way out to be recycled)
- Elmer's White Glue (I used two 4 fl oz bottles)
Before I made the Mod Podge, I washed out the jar and spray painted the lid silver. I also took off the label from the jar and did my best to get rid of all of the adhesive (first tried a paper towel and rubbing alcohol, but it didn't work and then I tried olive oil and it worked like a charm).
- Empty glue into jar
- Fill the empty glue bottle with water and pour into the new jar with the glue (Ideally, you want 50% glue and 50% water)
- Shake, Shake, SHAKE the jar
That's it! You have made homemade mod podge! EASY PEASY!
You can get a little fancy and create a label too if you want. My label was printed from here. I simply added text before I printed and then cut it out. I used packaging tape to tape it on the jar (so it would be easy to take on and off if I wanted and to keep it water sealed).
