You know what’s fun? Getting new art materials with the directive of coming up with a project to share. Especially when they’re materials from Mod Podge! I’m such a fan of all of their gooey substances, and I got to try one with sparkles in it. Yep, sparkles. It doesn’t get much better than Mod Podge + glitter.

Side note: Did you even know how many Mod Podge products there are? I didn’t know until I started working on this post. Please take that as a warning, because I will be using more Mod Podge goops in future products, oh yes, I will.

Anyway, here goes; you get to learn how to make some stocking tags. I was going to go the ornament route for this project, but you know when you’re trolling the aisles of the craft store and something catches your eye? These little wooden circles did that to me, so I grabbed them and some and hustled home to work on my first holiday project of the year.

Round up your kids and supplies and make some yourself!

Materials

  • Flat wood circles
  • Sparkle Mod Podge
  • Craft knife
  • Mod Podge spouncer set (spouncer is such a fun word to say) (A spouncer is a small foam applicator)
  • FolkArt satin acrylic paints in Apple Red and Classic Green
  • Book pages or newspaper pieces
  • Letter stencils
  • Drill to drill a hole
  • Embroidery thread and embroidery needle

This may seem like a lot of materials, but this is really an easy project. Pinky promise.

Directions

Mod Podge on some ripped pieces of book page or newspaper, covering your entire circles. You can do both sides if you’d like. We used regular Mod Podge for this step, but the sparkle still works as a good adhesive if you want to use that one.

After your circles are all dry, cut the extra paper off with a craft knife.

Stencil on the first letter of the owner of the Christmas stocking, and paint a border around the circle. Let dry.

Coat the circle with 1-2 coats of your fancy sparkle Mod Podge, letting dry in between.

Drill a hole in the top of your circle (parents’ or older kids’ job!)

Attach to stocking by sewing through a couple loops of embroidery thread.

Here’s my total sparkle shot, so you can see how sparkly these really are. Have you ever tried to photograph something sparkly? Yeesh.

In fact, why don’t you tell me what sorts of projects you have made with Mod Podge in the comments, please?
