Modge Podge – Hodge Podge

Welcome to another edition of Project 2011.  Every Thursday we all post about our goals for that week. It helped me to become more crafty. I also enjoy following the progress of the other gals. It was started by Cate at Moments of Whimsy

Last weekend I had such grand plans of things I wanted to get done. The husband was gone and I was going to spend the whole weekend crafting. The road to hell is paved with good intentions. I did get some Modge Podge done. I also got a couple of cards made.Not quite the huge crafting session I had planned. Darn t.v.!

I tried Modge Podge and found I really enjoyed it. My first attempt was very thick. I thought that the more of that slop I slapped on the paper, the better. I learned that less is more with this stuff. My first label turned out really thick. I’m still pleased with it. It’s a learning curve and I know better. I used an image from The Graphics Fairy I poured over pages of images.  I wanted to find, just the right one.

Here is the finished product with the flowers I found. Some lady at Hobby Lobby suggested the marble things. I’m glad she did.

I had so much fun with this, that I wanted to do another. I started looking for Vintage Halloween images. I stumble on a fun  place called Love Manor and I feel in love. She has the best images for Halloween labels. I only had one jar to play with or I would have made more. The link takes you to this label set. I didn’t use as much Modge Podge on this one. I loved how it turned out.

Now I’m stuck as to what to fill the jar with. I’m thinking beef jerky.



  1. I would love one of those jars! He he he. It reminds me of that old joke… "I have the heart of a child. I keep it in a jar on my desk!"

  2. Love the vase, and the "human flesh" label both delights and repels me lol ;-)

    I've found that Modge Podge is an incredibly handy thing to have around – do a google search on it – there are so many ideas of crafty things that you can do.

  3. Beautiful vase! Love the "beef jerky" jar. Perfect!!

  4. hehehe. Beef Jerky would be perfect!!! Looks like you did awesome with modge podging. Another talent and skill that I lack :)

  5. You're having so much fun with your crafts. Human flesh….. indeed. !!! Your stove gleams. Love to you…

  6. You're hilarious! I love the Human Flesh jar label…creepy and fun all at the same time.

    What a neat craft idea, I have a collection of old jars and bottles that have just been gathering dust. I might steal this one from you too.

    Well, once I'm done using up all the stuff I bought for making cards. ;)

    • Isn't it great?
      Oh, you should do it. Just look up Vintage Labels in Google Images. You would be amazed at the stuff you can find.

  7. I love the idea of beef jerky!! You could also use it for your toe nail clippings ;) They both turned out great, I love them both! Glad you found a new craft you enjoy…….moooooohahhahahaha
