Easy, Budget Friendly Mod Podge Crafts

I wanted to round up a few Mod Podge crafts today.. These are all super easy and budget friendly crafts.. For some of them you may even have all the materials you need (or at least some) just sitting around the house. 

 Decorative Vases
@Natural Home and Garden

 These pretty vases are super easy to make.. You really won't believe how easy and inexpensive they are to create.  

Cute Paper Covered Clipboards
@All Things Heart and Home
Look at these cute little clipboards I found that were made using Mod Podge! I love the matching pens too :)

Upcycled Water Bottle Vase
Yes, you read right! This vase is actually made out of a common water bottle.  It is so pretty and super easy to make, too.

 Embellished Clothespins

You can buy clothespins super cheap... You can buy a pack of 50 of them at Wal-Mart for a few bucks! Just FYI --You can get them at the Dollar Store (Dollar General) too but they didn't seem to be as good of quality as the ones at Wal-Mart.

@Design Sponge
Do you ever want to change up the lid on a glass jar? You can use Mod Podge to do just that .. It's a great way to use up your scrapbooking paper scraps! These lids turned out gorgeous .. love them!

One more thing before I end the post... I HAVE to share this awesome HOMEMADE MOD PODGE RECIPE that I found!! Mod Podge is awesome but it is kind of expensive... I don't mind buying it because it goes a long way but I'm always up for a homemade craft recipe.. She swears it works just as good as the real stuff... A huge THANK YOU to the girls over at Babblings and More :)

There are tons of other Mod Podge projects out there.. These are just a few. I'm sure I'll be doing many more Mod Podge posts in the future  :)

Jewelry Box Makeovers!

I've been thinking about jewelry boxes lately because I need to get one for myself as I've got lots of jewelry in a bowl that I would like to put in a box and organize. I would rather get a used one and refurbish it so I have been looking around the internet for inspiration. I want to share all of the cute jewelry boxes I found!

UPDATE: I just purchased an old jewelry box to refurbish... I'll be posting pics here when I am done with it!!

UPDATE #2: The jewelry box is done!  I have added the photo and link at the end of this post :)

Jewelry Box Makeover #1 @ Sisters of the Wild West

I love the shape of this cute jewelry box that was purchased at Goodwill for 2.99!! I love how she covered it with a pattern.. so cute!  Go to the link to see the before pic and how she did it :0)

Jewelry Box Makeover # 2 @ All Things Beautiful
I love the look of this yellow jewelry box! It really looks nice. I like how she even painted the drawer pulls yellow! Go have a look at the before pics.. she did an awesome job!

Jewelry Box Makeover #3 @ Bare Feet Welcome

I love this particular box because my grandma has one just like it.  How cute is this one?!  She simply painted it and added washi tape and look how darling it turned out!

Jewelry Box Makeover #4 @ Worth Pinning

I love the bright colors used to re-do this pretty jewelry box and the material used on the top is one of my all time favorite prints by Michael Miller.  Go see the before pics and how she did it!

Jewelry Box Makeover #5 @ Wow! Goodwill

I love the colors pink and black together and I LOVE this refurbished jewelry box!! SO CUTE!  There wasn't a before pic but it was wooden with the faux stained glass where the material is now.  This is such a pretty color of pink :)

 and finally.........

Here is the jewelry box that I recently refurbished I had so much fun with this.  For more photos and to see how I did it, go see my Thrift Store Jewelry Box Makeover hub!
