Today I’m sharing how I sparkled up my DIY thank you post cards (see how I made the post cards here) from my baby shower with glitter, Mod Podge, and an adhesive stencil. It’s easy, y’all!
Here’s what you need to make glitter patterns with mod podge:
- Mod Podge
- Sponge brush
- Adhesive stencil (Mod Podge has 6 fun patterns!)
- A tray to keep the glitter under control
My famous friend, Amy, of Mod Podge Rocks worked with Plaid to make these stencils! She sent me this fun one:
Warning: Reading the instructions on the stencil package is important! I, of course, attempted to do it my way first and that did not work at nearly as well. Here’s the gist: Adhere the stencil to the surface you want to glitter, and then use your sponge brush to apply a generous layer of Mod Podge…
Then, remove the stencil while the Mod Podge is still wet! (This is where I went wrong the first time.) Apply glitter in the tray. You can use a small brush to brush away any glitter remains. Then, let it dry for a couple of hours and voila! Glitter patterns on anything. Fun, right?!
It’s easy to do once you get the hang of it! Oh and you can wash the stencil with soap and water and the adhesive will come back in full force for up to 20 washes!
