HOW to Make a Mod Melt Video:

Steps for making a Mod Melt…

1. Create the Mod Melt Flowers and frames by heating a Mod Melt stick in a high-temp hot glue gun. Squeeze the melt into the mold of your choice. Allow the melt to cool for 7 min. Remove the melt from the mold and finish with paint. Make as many flowers and frames as you wish.

2. To finish the Mod Melts, paint them with FolkArt paints. To create a colored pearl look, mix a small amount to Pearl White paint with Baby Pink or Jamaican Sea paint. For a metallic look, just use the Inca Gold or Sequin Black paint straight from the bottle. For a white pearl look use Pearl White straight from the bottle. To add highlights to the Mod Melts, add dap of a contrasting color to the Mod Melt. Allow to dry.

3. Once dry, top-coat all the Mod Melt designs with Extreme Glitter Hologram.

Fabric Covered Sneakers with Mod Podge

Recently, Steve and I were shopping for summer blow-up pools at Walmart when my eye spotted this adorable fabric!  Ya know…I had to get a cut of this acid green floral fabric and I grabbed the plain shoes too. You really only need a few supplies to make a pair of custom sneakers and we promise it is easy!  For best results use cotton or cotton blend fabrics.  Fabrics with all over prints work well.

Scissors
Sequin trim

Wrap the fabric around shoe to determine the size needed.  I like to do this on the bias so you get a little stretch and it helps with the fabric smoothing over the rounded sections.

Apply Fabric Mod Podge to the shoes.  For this design we just added fabric to the toe and heel area.
