I normally keep a stock of Mod Podge in my house because I'm constantly needing it for some sort of project. And let me tell you, I love Mod Podge! So when I needed it for a DIY & couldn't find it, I thought that this was the perfect opportunity to make my own!
A DIY for Mod Podge always comes up on my Pinterest so I figured, why not!
What I enjoyed about all the posts I saw to make your own (I checked out a handful), they were all the same. I always hate when you're looking to do a project and you click on 5 different pins & they're all different. Then you have to pick and choose which is most trustworthy.
What they all said is you need 2 ingredients: glue & water. Awesome, both of those I had! What I realized too was if this works how I want it to, I can just stock up on Elmer's glue around back to school time and save a crap ton of money! I always use a coupon when I buy Mod Podge, but if I can save even more money, then the crafter in me is happy!
So, now lets get to it!
Grab your Elmer's glue- I used your basic, white washable glue, some water, a mason jar (or a container that you can close tight) and a plastic spoon (and fork if you're like me).
The mixture is 2 parts glue & 1 part water. So it depends what size glue you're using & how much Mod Podge you want to make.
Once you put the mixture into the jar or container, mix it up! I used both a plastic spoon & a plastic fork to help with the mixing until I got all the water absorbed by the glue. You'll notice it'll start to have a consistency of Mod Podge & then you're done! You can start using it right away!
I used it right away to do my DIY project, and it worked great! And there was none of that Mod Podge smell which if you have used it before, you know what I'm talking about!
Happy Mod Podging!
