I continue to pin DIY and Art Projects yet it seems that I never have the time to make what I see on Pinterest. Do you do this too?
Well, today I saw a Shabby-Chic Style tin can on Pinterest that was either covered in fabric, decorative paper or a napkin. There were no instructions. The Pinner said, This looks easy to mod podge. So I decided to do it with the fabric that I had on hand.
I checked the Mod Podge Decoupage Education Center. And I learned that it was easier to cut the fabric if you covered it with Mod Podge first and then let it dry. That idea did work. I then covered the can with Mod Podge.
To eliminate wrinkles, I found that it was important to smooth the fabric into the can ridges with a damp paper towel. I painted Mod Podge over the covered can. For a permanent finish, I will spray the dry can with a clear acrylic spray paint.
The project didn't take me long at all. So now I finally made something from my Pinterest Board - and I have a new container to store my paint brushes.
