I’d first like to congratulate Amy Anderson of Mod Podge Rocks on her product launch! A few days ago I received a sample of the new Mod Podge Rocks peel and stick stencils (thank you, Amy!) and of course I couldn’t just come up with one project. Why? Because first and foremost, they’re REUSABLE! I also wanted to try them out on a few different surfaces: plastic, glass and fabric.
Here’s a heads up: this post ends with a stencil giveaway!
But first we’re going to go through the nuts and bolts of these stencils.
How to Use Mod Podge Rocks Stencils
Once you get these in your hands, you’ll see that they easily stick to surfaces the way a rubber decal would. They are way better than stencils that you spray with glue. Most importantly because spray glue can be extremely dangerous. These stencils are also easily flexible. You’ll see in my glass project that I’m using a recycled jar which is very narrow. I was worried that the stencil wouldn’t be able to wrap at an extreme curve, but it was easy peasy.
1. First clean your surface and apply the stencil
2. Use a pouncer to apply the Mod Podge
3. Remove the stencil and puff on the glitter. I love this glitter because it’s super fine and you can get very detailed.
4. (Not shown) Clean the Mod Podge off the stencil then return it to the clear plastic backing.
5. Give the Mod Podge time to dry (I gave it about 20 minutes) then brush off excess glitter with a paint brush. Do this onto a stiff paper or glitter tray so you can refill the glitter puffer with the excess glitter.
3 Craft Projects Using Mod Podge Rocks Stencils
As I said above I wanted to try out the peel and stick stencils on glass, plastic and fabric. So being Eve of Reduction I had to shop in my recycling bin (sort of). Lately I’ve been a hoarder of recycled jars. You may have seen my recent Valentine Luminary craft. Well, there are more recycled jar crafts to come. Like this…
1. Recycled Jar Pencil Vase – I like to keep a small pen/pencil holder near my bed for those nighttime bursts of inspiration. I had a beautiful little vase that my son broke, and I made a big fuss about how much I loved it (so mean, I know). But now I’ve replaced it with this recycled carper jar. It’s so slim…and now glittery – I love it!
2. Mod Podged Canvas Book – You peeked, didn’t you? Yes, I had to add some pretty detailing to an old writer’s book I have. The stencil stuck incredibly well to fabric. This was actually my third use of the stencil.
3. Decorative Keurig Cup Egg Holder – Last, I skipped ahead to Easter. I was going to cut up the border that frames the stencil in the package and use it to decorate an egg, but not today. I do have another broken item story, though. My beloved porcelain egg holder – that I used for my craved avocado pit craft – broke. So I decided to upcycle a K-cup! Lucky for me my husband can get these at work. If you’re a lover of Keurig coffee, I do have a Pinterest board for K-cup Crafts, where I’ll be adding this.
