Kate Spade-Inspired ModPodge Mugs – #12MonthsofDIY

Kate Spade-Inspired ModPodge Mugs - #12MonthsofDIY

This months challenge item was ModPodge and I literally had no idea what I was going to do. Until I saw ModPodge makes a waterproof version. Then it hit my like a tonne of bricks! Kate Spade Inspired Mugs!

I’ve been having a heck of a time trying to find mugs that I like enough to have a whole set of them. I’m kind of tired of having a bunch of different mugs that don’t match. Recently we were given a Kate Spade bowl set as a house warming gift and I’ve been in love with the color scheme ever since I laid eyes on them but couldn’t find any mugs similar. Time to DIY!


I went to the dollar store and picked up these mugs for $1.50 each. I also found some tissue paper in the same color as my bowls. Then I picked up some polka dot scrapbooking paper. I was hoping to find polka dot tissue paper but no luck. I was nervous the scrapbooking paper would be too thick.

I cut the tissue paper and scrapbooking paper into squares of varying sizes. I started with the polka dot paper and made sure it was nicely coated on either side with the waterproof ModPodge. I used a sponge brush because that’s what I had on hand. Then I made sure the mug was nice and coated with the ModPodge as well. Then I stuck the paper on and used the brush to smooth it out and make sure it was secure. Then I layered on the tissue paper, not really following any rhyme or reason.


Once I was finished I let it dry overnight and then did three more rounds of painting on the ModPodge and then letting it dry over night. You want to make sure there is a good seal.

and voila!

Now it’s time to see the rest of the DIY Mod Podge project ideas from my Canadian blogging friends!
