Home Made Mod Podge

Last night I ran out of Mod Podge in the middle of a project. I had seen a pin on Pinterest from Do It Yourself Divas on how to make your own. I thought it made complete sense, so at 10:30 pm last night, I tried it out.
She suggested to do just equal parts of elmers glue and water. I found this super mega runny. I didn't love how watery it was because I was worried it would ruin my paper. (And at 10:30, I couldn't run to the store to get more of the paper I was using.) I added a little more emlers glue. It was still pretty runny but it still worked and did the trick. I woke up this morning to perfectly glued paper. So Cool!!!

I just used a baby food jar. (I didn't want to make too much in case I didn't like it, or it didn't work.) This picture was taken after I used it to finish my project.

Halloween is right around the corner... YAY!!

I'm sad to see summer go, but I'm excited to get ready for Halloween at the same time. This is the first year I can dress my kid up and believe me, I'm so taking him trick-or-treating... Maybe just at the grandparents houses, but still, haha.

BUT, I'm also excited to start getting my Halloween Decor out and make new stuff too. This is just a few of my fav's that I took pics of last year. I don't have it up yet, don't worry. :)

This guy doesn't work on my fridge anymore, because the fridge is stainless steal. I tried it on the dishwasher (thats also stainless) and it worked great. Maybe it's not really stainless?

I'm not sure if I'm going to put this little lady up this year or not... I've had her for a few years and it might be time for a change. I do love her though. Tell me what you think.
