Burlap Scrapbook Canvases for the Wall with a Podgeable Tile Banner

Thankful Canvas Mod Podge Podgeables scrabble tile Have you seen the new burlap canvases?  We are loving them and they are great for making mixed media collages to hang on the wall. This one features my favorite fall picture of my sister’s family.  Too cute!  The banner across the top was mad with our square podgeable shapes. The set that has the most amount of squares is available at Walmart in the DIY Jewelry Section.

Burlap Mod Podge podgeables scrapbooking

Begin with the small square Podgeable shape. Trim fall scrapbook paper to fit the top of the Podgeable shapes. (You can use paper punches too)

Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the tops of the Podgeable shapes and to the back of the papers. Position the papers on the Podgeables. Smooth with your fingers. Apply a top-coat of Mod Podge. Allow to dry 2 hours.

Attach a letter stickers to the center of the Podgeable shapes. Cover the Podgeable shapes with Dimensional Magic. Begin around the outer edge and fill until the entire Podgeable is covered. Dry for 24 hours in an undisturbed and non-drafty place.

Burlap scrapbooking embellishments with Mod Podge

Tie yarn through the holes on the Podgeable shapes. Using the same yarn, sew a row of straight stitches through the canvas. This will be the “rope” that holds up the “thankful banner”. Hot glue the Podgeables across the stitched line.

Attach the photo to the canvas by using a drop of hot glue in each corner. Add silk flowers and buttons to the design. Tie a piece of leather lacing around the outer edge of the canvas.

Tip: While the Dimensional Magic is drying don’t move the pendant around or you might get air bubbles. If you do get an air bubble, use a sewing pin to pop it.

DIY Candle Hostess Gift for Thanksgiving

altered glass candle with mod podge and podgeables

It is easy to whip up a Hostess Gift for Thanksgiving when you use Mod Podge.  This glass candle (smells like pumpkin ~ so yummy) had the typical label on the front.  We soaked the candle in soapy water to remove the label and attached some fall themed scrapbook paper in it’s place. The tag was made using a Podgeable shape.  The ribbon is from my crepe collection at the supply shop.

Make This: Fabric Pendants with Rubber Stamps and Mod Podge

Got Fabric Scraps and Mod Podge?

We are so excited to share this project with you!  We always have tons of little scrap fabrics and of course we have a gazillion rubber stamps so we tried to design a project that would blend the two.

VIDEO TUTORIAL

VIDEO TUTORIAL

After experimenting and lots of trial and error, we created Fabric Stamped Pendants!  They are so addicting to make!  We used fabric Mod Podge for the glue and sealer and top coated them with Dimensional Magic.  The Dimensional Magic gives the pendant the hard gloss finish.

Materials:
Rubber stamp (we used a key image)
Scrap Fabric (light color)
Fabric Ink Pad – permanent
Non-Stick Scissors
Eyelet and Setter
Gem Glue
Rhinestones
Chain Chain Chain: chain, jumprings and clasp
Scrap Ribbon

Instructions

Measure the height and width of your stamped image.  Add 1” to the height measurement.  Double the width and add 1” to the measurement.  Cut a piece of fabric to this size.

Working on one edge, rubberstamp your image to the fabric.  Allow to dry 4 hours or heat set with an iron.

Apply a very thin coat of fabric Mod Podge to the back of the fabric.  Fold the fabric over so the edges meet. Let dry for 4 hours. Very Important!

Coat the front and back of the fabric with a thin coat of Mod Podge. Let dry for 4 hours.

Cut around your stamped image, leaving a small border.

Add an eyelet to the top center.

Add a even layer of Dimensional Magic to the top of the stamped image. Let dry 5 hours in a non-drafty location.

Glue gems to the top of the design.

Cut a length of chain to fit your neck.  Using pliers attach a clasp to each end of the chain with jump-rings.  Thread a jump-ring through the eyelet and attach to the center of the chain.  Add more jump-rings to create a longer dangle pendant.  Add a bow to the top of the pendant.
