How to mod podge on glass
Hi there friends! The other day I shared with you 20+ Mod podge on glass projects.
I sort of put the cart before the horse on that one. I came to realize many of you have never even tried it!
Today, I am sharing how to mod podge on the glass. I will be leaving a link to the video tutorial at the end. I did a Facebook live and taught all my friends just how simple this technique is. I have found out in the meantime that there is a special roller tool that will get all the wrinkles out. I always use my finger:) I plan on grabbing that tool.
So as per usual my weekly trip to the dollar tree was a success. I picked up two plain glass vases and one pack of tissue paper.
I already had some mod podge paper leftover from my Bird plaque art so I wanted to use that up.
These pretty vases are a perfect little extra something for a gift of flowers, or just because. No need to just plunk some flowers in a vase and hand them over. Make the vase pretty and one of a kind special.
You know me and the bohemian look, I just love it. I got a little fancy with the twine. I wrapped it around the vase, then made almost knots, sort of like macrame. Of course, a little burlap flower embellishing had to be added as well.
The second vase is done with tissue paper. Lots of layering involved in this one. I didn’t want the glass to peek through like it did on my dollar tree votive’ s I did a few weeks ago. I liked it for those because I wanted the flickering tea light to shine through. For this vase, though I didn’t want any transparency.
I added a little bling ribbon and added a cute butterfly necklace I have had for years. I think I am going to give this vase to my niece. She will love it for her bedroom.
To think it all started with this! Soooo stinking cute.
Please watch my video on How to mod podge on glass:)
Thanks for stopping over today. Plenty more to see.
While you are here, I want to also mention I am venturing out into the world of creating my own stencil line! I have been the stencil queen since the 80’s, and I absolutely love it.

FINALLY there’s a Dollar Tree in my town! Until 2 weeks ago, I had to travel almost half an hour to get to one. . . I’m going to have a modge podge sort of weekend here! Thanks for the constant inspiration and creative ideas. LOVE these new vases!
Thanks Judy! Have fun.
This looks like so much fun. All of the projects are so pretty.
howdy that is really cute Debbie love it!
I enjoyed watching your video on mod podging on a vase from the Dollar Tree. FUN!
And while you were on you had a hot flash….oh, fun fun, even more fun. I remember having a few of those.
Well, that was until I started taking the supplement Chaste Tree by Medi Herb (Standard Process). You can get it at Amazon. I got mine at Weaver’s Health Food Store here in Manheim, PA. They would ship it. Boy did it work! No more hot flashes while I went through the change…the whole 10 years of going through the change. I highly recommend it.
Thanks for showing how to easily mod podge on glass. I want to do a project of putting pictures of lifetime friends on glass apothecary jars to give to them when we all get together in a couple weeks. We haven’t all gotten together in 20 years so wanted to use the pictures from our last time together to make a keepsake. Just wasn’t sure how to do it. I Googled and found you! Thank you!!!
PS: I do have a website (address below), but I haven’t done much on it in a very long time. I used to sell on eBay and a little on my website before I started having a lot of health issues. I just haven’t had the heart to close down my website yet.
I LOVE using Modge Podge for craft projects. I do a lot of photos modge podged on to artist canvas and use them either at home for myself or for gifts. All my Christmas gifts last year were these. Friends and family love them! Made a 20×30 canvas in tribute for my mom (she passed in 1977) and just finished one for her sister’s family when my aunt passed just before Christmas last year. Going to try the vases next and see how they work out.
Thanks for the ideas!
I’m new to your site but I’m very interested every place I’ve looked before I have mod mods parched they have told me to get either acrylic white paint or something called gesso and paint it first in order for the paper to stick I have not done that because I I don’t understand why so if you could tell me if just the way you’re doing that if that’s going to work I’m all for it
I can’t find the video on how to mod podge on glass….. Thanks. You made some cute stuff!
