Mod Podge Stool

Mod Podge is simple to do. I have made collage pictures, trays, chairs etc..Select your theme and then either use some real photograpghs that you have laying around or select a bunch from some magazines.

For this stool my daughter chose her favorite animal ----DOGS! She actually mixed it up using a few photo's of our dogs and then a bunch of magazine photo's of all kinds of dogs. It's a fun project and it makes a terrific gift for anyone, including yourself!!

Materials Needed:
  • A wooden stool (from any craft and hobbie shop such as AC Moore,Michaels etc...)
  • Mod Podge glue (Or you can make it yourself using craft glue--I will give recipe later in this post)
  • lots of pictures
  • A Sponge paintbrush or a regular large soft paintbrush
  • An old plastic tablecloth or some newspapers
  1. Spread out old cloth or some newspapers on a table
  2. Set your stool on top of the cloth/newpapers
  3. Spread one later of glue onto surface of stool and place pictures where you want them to be
  4. Once pictures are in place you need to paint over them with them mod podge glue
  5. Let it dry making sure all corners are sticking
  6. Once it dries you will want to repeat step 4 at least 2-3 more times.
  7. It will dry very shiny and hard
Make it yourself Mod podge Glue
  • Buy any craft glue
  • An old jar with a lid
  • water
Empty the contents of your glue into an empty glass or plastic jar.
Now fill the empty glue bottle with water 2 times and pour contents into jar. Place the lid on the jar and shake to mix well. Voila! Modpage glue.
