Amy Anderson of Mod Podge Rocks helped to whip up this project using Apple Barrel and Mod Podge. Get the tutorial and gear up for crafting!
Join Cathie & Steve as they show you to make these easy monogrammed wine charms with Mod Podge for our second day of Twelve Days of Crafting – such an adorable gift idea paired with a bottle of wine! Now’s a great time to stock up on Mod Podge supplies – we’re offering $10 off orders over $40 in the Plaid Store!
Wooden letters make this decoupaged wall decor really ‘pop!’ We love this ‘joy’ sign for the holidays, or this would be a super cute technique to do with your family’s monogrammed initials for a year-round piece, too! Using sparkle Mod Podge gives a dimensional depth to the letters and that extra special touch.

These happy decor projects can all be completed in an afternoon or less to help get your house in the holiday spirit.
This cheery chevron Holiday Sled Decoration is an adorable alternative to a wreath. We love how it’s accented with a burlap bow to bring in an organic texture to top off this project. You could also write your monogram or family’s last name on it, too!

1. Begin with a rectangle Pendant Tray. Choose your background paper. Trim the paper to fit inside the pendant tray. Use layers of paper if desired.
2. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the pendant tray and to the back of the background paper. Position the background paper in the tray. Smooth with your fingers. Apply a top-coat of Mod Podge.
3. Using Mod Podge as a glue, attach gems to the design around the edge of the pendant well. Allow to dry for 2 hours.
4. Fill in the pendant with Dimensional Magic. Begin around the outer edge and fill until the entire pendant is covered. Dry for 24 hours in an undisturbed and non-drafty place.
5. Create the necklace by first laying out all your beaded chain. Begin by attaching a clasp to the chain with jumprings.
6. Attach a jumpring to the bail on the pendant. Attach the pendant to the chain.
7. Make beaded dangles by threading beads onto long headpins. Leaving enough room for making a loop, trim the end of the headpin. Using pliers, bend back the clipped end to form a loop, attach the loop to the pendant jumpring. Make as many as you wish. For this design we made 5 dangles.
Tip: While the Dimensional Magic is drying don’t move the pendant around or you might get air bubbles. If you do get an air bubble, use a sewing pin to pop it.
