Mod Podge Ultra Blog Hop!

Hello Friends!!!

Today I have created a piece of home decor using the NEW MOD PODGE Ultra!



What is the new Mod Podge Ultra, you ask?

It is a.....

  • Spray on all-in-one glue & sealer
  • Multi Surface use: wood, ceramic, canvas, sculptures, fabric and more
  • Indoor/outdoor; UV protection
  • Leaves no brush strokes
  • Durable, scratch and water resistant 

So I wanted to put it to the test. I am using wood, card stock, burlap, cardboard, flowers. All different textures to see how well the Mod Podge Ultra works. I received a Matte finish, which I personally love. The do have a gloss finish also.

Supplies needed:
  • Mod Podge Ultra
  • 6" X 6" wood plaque
  • Card Stock of choice - I used 7 gypsies
  • Cardboard
  • Wood bird
  • Burlap
  • Flowers
  • Word Cutouts
  • Distress ink
  • Scissors
  • Paper trimmer
Step 1.

Gather all supplies


Step 2.

Tear off top layer of cardboard and set aside.


Step 3.

Start adhering your pieces to the wood, cardboard to the card stock, burlap to the cardboard. Adhere bird to card stock using Mod Podge Ultra. Let sit a bit so that it can be cut out.



Step 4.

Cut bird card stock as close to wood as possible. Using a file you can file the edges off. Distress ink around bird and outside edges of plaque. Adhere on flowers bird and sentiment.


Step 5. 

Spray a mist of Mod Podge Ultra over entire surface to give a seal coat if desired! Final and VERY IMPORTANT tip.......wipe sprayer off after each use! You don't want the sprayer to seal itself closed!

You are finished!


I really liked the way the Mod Podge Ultra worked. I did have a tough time with my paper adhering to the wood, the paper had a shiny surface and I believe that was the issue. I used it on regular card stock and had no problem. 

Mod Podge Ultra came in handy one afternoon when my g-daughter stopped over with a necklace she made at daycare. It was GLITTER added to a shell and it was coming off all over. I sprayed a sealer coat of Mod Podge Ultra, we left it to dry and it was good to go! No stickiness, but most important.......NO GLITTER!
