This DIY glasses collection was created using clip art images and Mod-hodgepodge. It’s to personalize a funny way, is a table setting for an event.
Have you entertaining projects for the summer? Well, you need to get on it! To waste time. I love to entertain, and the presentation is everything for me!
I don’t usually shop at Walmart for the entertainment needs, but it was amazing to find that you have so many options. AND the challenge something fundamental with reliable Plaid products has proven itself once again!
Walmart’s household goods-the area was full Podging of basic glasses perfect for painting and Mod. When, I came across the trifle bowl, I knew immediately that I could make a nice centerpiece (I thought the "FISH bowl to make"?)!
Then I saw the glass salad plates and I thought: “I could be a collection of sea pictures.” I gathered my four plates, trifle bowl and a large glass charger for my bowl.
Next, I approached the Department of crafts, and it was like being in a candy Shop . . . I love FolkArt paints, and WOW!
So many varieties . . . I bought some FolkArt Enamel in Aqua, perfect for the painting of the base. Then I went to the fabric Department and saw a piece that looked liked water.
On my way to pay for my goodies, I saw a package with four of the eight tracks for .99 cents and thought, “I can look good.”
it All began the ideas fall into place . . . I could wait’t come home, and you create this masterpiece. That’s how sure I felt.
Below I created the listing I have, and I am very pleased with the results. SO easy.
Here is a picture of the collection in one place to enjoy for the guests (I think ideal for appetizers, salads or dessert?)
This is the smaller plate and the starfish is coasters from the collection.
And the great bowl.
The trifle bowl, was transformed into a splendid centrepiece!
youtake a look at the other side.br>This is how I did it!
step 1: They collect their findings
• 4 glass salad plates
• 1 Larger glass plate
• 1 trifle bowl
• 1 pack of four coasters,
• substance with a beach pattern
• Mod-hodgepodge of Shine and Mod smorgasbord of Hard Coat
• FolkArt Enamel paint (Aqua)
step 2: Two options-A and-B – your choice
A: I scanned the fabric into Photoshop and slightly change the image. Then I used to create Dover “sea animals” clip-art to this look. You measure from the rear of the lower plate and to fit the image. A laser copy and cut. I used a circle cutter to an exact circle.
OR: B: Make a laser copy of the material and the selected image(s) from Dover Clip art. you can Cut with an X-Acto knife or a pair of scissors.
step 3: Decoupaging plate(s)
• Remove the Finished labels, prices and clean the plates.
• Apply Mod smorgasbord on the back of the plate with a brush.
• Take over of Mod-hodgepodge, the picture, remember the front image is always mounted to the underside of the plate.
tip: For best results, use the Mod-hodgepodge Professional Decoupage Tool … The squeegee aids in getting air pockets out.
• Let it dry for at least 15 minutes, then seal the image with Mod-hodgepodge for protection.
step 4: Decoupaging a trifle bowl
• you Remove all the stickers and prices;wash and dry.
• I cut out the pictures of both large fish and small shells, with an X-Acto knife.
• Apply Mod smorgasbord on the inside of the trifle bowl, and then in front of the fish image, and in place. TIP: Use Mod hodgepodge squeegee for the best results.
• Then add the shells to the inner side of the bottom (pedestal base) with Mod hotchpotch as glue; dryingleave for at least 15 minutes.br>step 5: Paint
• I then shells FolkArt Enamel paint applied over the dried, decoupaged. It’s like magic how it transforms it! It dries to the touch quickly, but complete cure in 21 days (air-dry).
• Fill in the heart with a beach-sand, or “sandbox” sand (pack it in the bottom of the bowl).
• Add a column and some tea lights.
tip: I have the bottom 2 oz. To press the FolkArt color, in the Packed sand, the perfect cavity for the accommodation of the tea lights. Then I still have some shells that I have collected over the years from favorite beaches I have visited.
For the coasters:
• Removed the cork glue was attached with a very small BLOB.
• cut-to-fit image in the coaster.
• Apply Mod smorgasbord on the top side of the coaster and place the image. Smooth and let dry. Seal with Hard Coat Mod-smorgasbord.
projects completed, and time to send the invitations to the party. Note that you only appear to be able to wash hand you the fronts of the plates in contrast to them completely in the water.
