Oh My….. we couldn’t stop making these lanterns~ They are so addicting and easy to make.  The glass is just a simple mason jar.  The bold color is Mod Podge sheer color and the stencils are the new Mod Podge Rocks stencils.  They can be used over and over and the patterns are super cute!  Of course we had to add a bunch of trims and faux diamond ribbon.

Instructions

Always begin by cleaning and drying your mason jar.

Swirl Method: Pour Sheer Color Mod Podge into the jar. Swirl the Sheer Color around the inside until it covers all the sides. Turn the jar upside down into a paper cup and let the excess drizzle out of the jar. Allow it to sit for 10 hours. Turn the jar over and allow it to dry until the color is clear. Use a craft knife to trim off any excess around the rim.

Brush-On Method: Apply sheer color to the outside of the jar with a paintbrush. Apply as many coats as you wish until your desired color is reached. Allow for dry time in between coats.

Place a Mod Podge stencil across the front of a jar. Spounce Mod Podge gloss over the stencil. Remove the stencil, poof the glitter over the stenciled area. Allow to dry and brush off excess glitter with a dry paintbrush. Repeat for the other side. Wash the stencil, reattach to the carrier sheet and use again.

Attach glitzy trims to the vases and lanterns using craft glue. The jars that are made with the brush-on technique are suitable for filling with water or candles. The swirl technique is best used with silk flowers, glow sticks or battery operated candles.

Tip: When glittering, glitter over a file folder. You can fold the file up and use it as a funnel for recycling glitter.

Enjoy! xoxoxo

DIY Video: Ikea Lack Table Hack with Mod Podge

Bold and modern, this flower power table started out as a $7.00 Lack Table from IKEA! The bold painted pattern is achieved with pebble stencils.  The flowers are cut from wrapping paper and then they are attached with Mod Podged to the table top.  The whole top is sealed with a clear spray sealant.

Watch how we did it!

 

Materials to Gather:
White Parsons table (Ours was from Ikea)
Low tack painters tape
FolkArt Painting Stencils – Small – Pebble Background
Roller foam paintbrush
FolkArt Artists Pigments™ – Pure Black, 2 oz.
Scissors
Mod Podge Professional Tool Set
Mod Podge Gloss
Foam paintbrushes
Decorative paper in bold flower print
Patricia Nimocks™ Clear Acrylic Sealers – Matte, 6 oz.

Instructions:

1. If needed prep the table by cleaning it, sanding it or applying a coat of spray primer.

2. Position the painting template stencil on the corner edge of the table. Use low tack tape to hold in position.

3. Using Pure Black and a foam roller brush, roll the paint over the template. Carefully peel the template and allow the section to dry. Reposition the template on the table, overlapping the edges. Continue until the entire table is covered.

4. Cut bold flower shapes from decorative paper. Using a foam paintbrush, apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper, place onto the table, use a brayer to smooth the paper and remove any air bubbles. Allow to dry and continue until the entire table is covered.

5. Add three layers of clear coat to the table top to protect the design.
