Modge Podge Altered Bangle

Remember this 10p bangle I got in Primark’s reduced bin?
Picture 118
Well I’ve covered in DecoPatch paper and Modge Podge sparkle finish and now it looks like this:-
Altered Bangle
I’ve only put one layer of DecoPatch on so the gold leathery effect of the bangle shows through giving a lovely effect.

I’ve only recently started using Modge Podge, I got a starter pack, which had one small bottle of each finish in it to try.  I am hooked, it dries very quickly and doesn’t run and the various finishes it gives are fantastic, much better and easier than some of the varnishes I have used in the past.

This is absolutely gorgeous. My daughters have a couple of these bangles that they got ages ago and never wear. Must show them your idea. Thanks. Donna

Hi, just to say I've been reading your blog for a while and really enjoy your posts and the fun projects you make. I've just started a blog and linked to yours in today's post.

Just gorgeous, I never think to do anything with cheap bangles. Think I'll be hitting up Primark this week to see if I can find anything to make as nice as yours!

Wow....looks fab! I've always wondered what mod podge was. I've seen it in the craft shops but never used it!
