Upcycled Dining Set for the Patio- Painting Chair Frames and Upholstering

Upcycled Dinning Set for the Patio
We updated a dining set that we no-longer used indoors to make it more suitable for the backyard patio. We used vibrant colours to give the outdoor furniture a more energizing look using Fusion Mineral Paint and by changing the upholstery.

Decoupage Vase and Using Stencils on Fabric

I enjoy looking through, and being inspired by a couple of Amy Butler's books. The Stencils book has beautiful fresh, decorative patterns that we can use for many of our decor projects. The 14 die-cut stencil designs in this kit comes with an inspiring book that has colourful projects.

Quilled Wall Art on Canvas

Mod Podge Box To Keep Travel Finds

I really enjoyed turning an old plastic box into this cute box to keep our travel finds, and memorable things. I used left over paint from my Mod Podge Sheer Colour marbled vase project to get this brown colour for the lid of the box. Adding this sheer colour over the atlas gave the atlas a nice brown colour effect, as well as helped seal the atlas paper and gave it a durable coating.

Making a Personalized Treasure Box

Decoupage is the hottest trend in the crafting world.  Mod Podge is an all-in-one glue, sealer and finish that we can use to do lots of decorations and craft projects with a little bit of paper and cloth.  The possibilities are only limited by our imagination!  
I am new to Mod Podge and decoupage tools, so I excitedly did many projects using Mod Podge with my children.  We will be sharing our projects one at a time, so stay tuned :)  Here is a link to the Mod Podge Formula guide, which I found useful because it has tips and tricks for the beginners :)
For this Personalized box, we needed...
a shoebox
Mod Podge
Mod Podge with glitter *
foam brush
cloth
iron optional
scissors
paper to line the working surface
*Mod Podge can be found at craft stores like Michaels, and it is available in the 6-pot sampler pack or 8 oz bottles.
First iron and cut the cloth to the fit and cover the shoebox.  Apply Mod Podge generously on the shoe box and glue the cloth.  Put Mod Podge in a small section and cover with the cloth before doing another section because Mod Podge dries fast.  
After the cloth glued on the shoebox dries completely, apply a coat of Mod Podge glitter and let it dry completely before using.  This would make a lovely Personalized gift.  I gave this box to my daughter to keep her treasures.
