Modge Podge Plate Project


This weekend I attempted & completed my FIRST modge podge project.  I don't know if i'm a lover, or hater or the stuff yet...time will tell :-)  (After completing the project I was told using tissue paper is fairly difficult so that gives me hope for future projects! ) I forgot to take a "before" picture but the picture above is what I used.
  • My mom got the napkins for me @ Tuesday Mornings {Although I've heard you can find them at TJ MAX too}  for $1.99 and the plate I had gotten on clearance awhile back at Target. 
  • I took the napkin and cut around the swirls
  • I modge podged the plate then stuck my tissue paper on it (its has three layers and i just used the first layer) Then I modge podged over everything & let it dry. 
it is not perfect but pretty good for a 1st timer if I do say so myself! :-) although, i'll be honest it took my three tries.  right now its nicely perched above my fridge!

got this great idea from Melissa over here!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Lovely job! It is the tissue; when I did mine I was so afraid it was going to rip. This was a "whew" project though!

Fawnda said...

The plate does look great! And tissue paper is hard to work with so GREAT job! Congrats on completing your first mod podge project! : )

Destri said...

Oh my! I love that! Did you just cut around the edges, or did the image just transfer? Great job!

Lanie Ree said...

So pretty! And thrifty, which is awesome. I love mod podge, but I don't love mod podging really thin paper- it always breaks on me.
