Mod Podge Ultra Blog Hop

Hi Crafty Friends!

Today I'm participating in a blog hop with Designer Craft Connection and we are featuring projects using Mod Podge Ultra.  Those on this blog hop were given samples of a new Mod Podge formulation that comes in a spray bottle.

I decided to use it to make fabric beads and create a necklace with the beads.  Here's the fabric I used.  It's a roll of coordinated fabric designed for quilting.

 These are my materials:  a strip of fabric, a bamboo skewer and the Mod Podge Ultra.  I covered my work surface with some waxed paper.  Before spraying, shake the Mod Podge Ultra.

 After spraying the fabric, I rolled up the bead around the skewer.

Then, I sprayed the bead again and wiped up the overspray with the bead so it was thoroughly coated.  I slid it off the skewer and set it aside to dry.  Just like a paint brush, Mod Podge Ultra Spray tops need to be cleaned after every use.  If they aren't, they will clog and become unusable.

Here are some of the beads that I created:
Rolled Fabric Beads
As I said, these are just a few of the beads I created.  I liked the way the process and the Mod Podge Ultra worked so much, I just kept on rolling!

I created more beads from old jeans.  I rolled them in the same way as before, then held them down with toothpicks to dry.  The heavier denim takes longer to dry.  I let mine dry overnight.

Then, I created a statement necklace with the long fabric beads and some shorter denim beads.

I used more upcycled denim to create the leaf beads on the end and the toggle for the clasp.  In the center, I wrapped a cloth strip around a long denim bead.

Fun to make and fun to wear!  And, so easy with Mod Podge Ultra!

Starting on March 23rd, head to the Designer Crafts Connection for the rest of the fabulous designs using Mod Podge Ultra.
