ETCETERAS: Picnic Glass with Mod Podge

Picnic Glass using Mod Podge and NapkinsWith the beautiful warm weather we’ve been experiencing, it’s no wonder I’m thinking about summer and picnics. I spied some fun picnic theme paper napkins at the market and grabbed a pack.

Cute Salt & Pepper Shakers with Mod Podge and NapkinsI have a shelf full of jars and glassware just waiting for a little makeover. These salt and pepper shakers are perfect for an outdoor barbeque or an impromptu picnic. They just needed a little sprucing up.

Picnic Glass with Mod Podge and NapkinsHave you ever used paper napkins with Mod Podge? It’s a fun and easy way to give a plain object a brand new look.

How to Mod Podge with NapkinsTo start, separate the white liner from the paper napkin. You only want to use the printed part of the napkin.

Mod Podge the napkin to the jarCut your napkin the length and width to cover your jar. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to your jar in sections and start applying the napkin. You want to be very gentle since the napkin is so thin. Make sure there are no creases or bubbles. You can gently press the napkin to make sure it’s smooth. For the bottom, cut slits in the napkin and adhere with Mod Podge.

Easy DIY Picnic GlassFor these picnic themed pieces, I made tassels from string to jazz them up even more.
