Have you ever found yourself thinking, “Mod Podge is so expensive”? Me too! After looking online for anything that could take the place of it, I found something just great! A do it yourself decoupage “recipe”. And the real kicker – it only cost me 74 cents! Compare that to $3.99…DEAL!
What you’ll need:
Glue (I used Elmer’s)
A jar of some sort
Make sure your jar is nice and clean. I used an old baby food jar as it was short enough that I could just dip my brush right in it.
Pour the glue in almost half way up.
Add the same amount of water as you did glue, making it a 50/50 solution.
Shake, shake, shake!
I shake it before every use, even though it doesn’t necessarily look like it needs it. I also clean my lid up a bit before putting it back on so I don’t have to deal with it getting too glued on.
