This weekend I bought my first jar of Mod Podge. Real crafters, feel free to laugh at me, as you’ve likely gone through cases by now, but this is a new thing for me.
I’ve been saving bottles to try to upcycle ever since I turned an old pepperoncini jar into something I really like a few months back. So, this weekend, the Mod Podge inspired me to dig out an old olive oil bottle and attempt to make it pretty.
Here is the result:
It is a million times harder to get a decent photo of a glass bottle with lace on it than it is to make this project. (My dog is rolling her eyes at my attempt at taking a decent photo, can you tell?)
What you need:
- Mod Podge
- Clean, dry bottle or jar (soak in warm water until label can be removed)
- Foam brush or paint brush
- Wide, pretty lace
What to do:
- Cut lace to fit around the circumference of the bottle or jar.
- Using the sponge or paint brush, dab a thin coat of Mod Podge onto the lace, to stick it to the jar.
- Reposition the lace gently as you go.
- Allow the first coat to dry, then brush on a second coat.
- Try not to extend the Mod Podge too far beyond the top and bottom of the lace to avoid a foggy appearance on the glass.
- Allow to dry, then enjoy!
