- Round glass or plastic ornament
- 1” fabric squares
- Mod podge
- Foam brush
- Glue gun
- Decorative embellishment if desired
Step 1: Apply the mod podge in small sections on the ornament. Attach the fabric squares.
Step 2: Repeat process until the ornament is covered. Allow to dry completely.
Step 3: Apply a second coat of Mod Podge and allow to dry overnight.
Step 4: If desired, apply decorative embellishment with the glue gun.
Fabric Ring Ornaments
1/8 yard of cotton fabric
2 – 4 Mason jar rings
Scissors or rotary cutter
Glue Gun or Floral pins (You can find them on Amazon)
Ribbon or twine
Decorative embellishments (optional)
Each 1/8 yard of fabric will cover two rings
Step 1: Cut your fabric into 1” wide x 7” long. I used a variety of color combinations. If you do this, choose 1/8 yard of each color you want.
Step 2: Wrap the fabric strip from the inside and tie in a knot around the outside of the ring.
Step 3: Continue to tie strips until the ring is full.
Step 4: Cut a length of ribbon or twine to serve as your hanger and tie around the ring, at the top. If you like, glue a decorative embellishment.
DIY Dollar Store Fabric Decoupage Plates
1 fat quarter of fabric
1 plate – A clear plate or a single colour plate works best.
1 pair of kitchen scissors or wire cutter
Step 1: Using your foam brush, spread the mod podge onto the back of the plate.
Step 2: Smooth fabric over the plate. Make sure there are no bubbles. If you turn over the plate, you can see if there are any spots you missed with the mod podge. Allow to dry.
Step 3: Cut the fabric around the plate. Apply another coat of mod podge and allow to dry 24 hours.
Be sure to hand clean the plate after use.
