Make Your Own Modge Podge

As most of you know or see Modge Podge is most crafters secret weapon!!! Right!? Well I happen to run across this recipe to make your own without paying the price of the Modge Podge. I have yet to test it out, but cannot wait to try it :)

What You Need:
  • 1 pint-sized jar
  • school glue
  • water
  • varnish (optional)
This is so simple! Just take your jar and fill it halfway full with the glue. Then fill your jar the rest of the way with the water. Now mix it up! Yeah, that's it! The lovely ladies of Babblings and More note that this recipe will create a matte finish and suggest that if you want a glossier finish to just add a Tbsp. of clear varnish!
