The 1970's were a time to remember! Mod Podge was an important part of all our arts and crafts-particularly decoupaging! Back then, we decoupaged everything that didn't walk away! Now many years later, Mod Podge is still a faithful friend. These days I've returned to decoupaging with some new craft ideas. I love to buy vintage hat box suitcases and renew them. I have several that I have decoupaged roses on the outside, and attached a wired ribbon to give it a chic, vintage look. The ideas are endless from Victorian motifs to Disney characters. I purchase most of the hatbox cases on Ebay--some I keep for myself, and some I sell in my collectibles booth.

Another arts and crafts project that I use Mod Podge for is lampshades. I love to decoupage shabby roses onto fringed lampshades to create a Victorian shabby chic look. It's amazing how beautiful these turn out.

Mod Podge can be used as a glue, a sealer, or a finish. It is non-toxic, and my favorite way to apply it is with a sponge applicator, to prevent brush strokes. It is water based for an easy cleanup, and you can purchase a matte or glossy finish.

Mod Podge is not just for the 70s--it's still groovy! (OOPS-I'm showing my age.)
