If you've ever done any sort of crafting, you know how awesome hot glue is. In my opinion hot glue is the go-to adhesive that can do or fix (almost) anything. That's why I'm so excited to share a brand new crafting tool that's just as easy to use. It's called Mod Melts - from the Mod Podge brand.
This new product from Mod Podge is specially formulated to be used with a high-temp glue gun and decorative silicone molds. Simply insert the Melt stick into your glue gun and fill up the desired mold. Don't worry if it's not perfect, you can trim it when dry.
When the melt has cooled completely (about 10 minutes) it will easily pop out of the mold. I used scissors to trim the excess before painting. These Mod Melts can be painted and embellished using acrylic paint, Mod Podge, glitter, alcohol inks, even nail polish! I love that they are so versatile!
I started by painting with a sponge dauber and then decided to get a little more paint inside the details with a small paintbrush. Next I applied a coat of Antique Matte Mod Podge to give the color a little more dimension. Isn't the effect neat?
As soon as I saw how these mini-frames turned out I thought they would make great label holders! So I typed a few sizes of labels and printed them until I got the perfect fit. These are laminated and hot-glued (see, I love it!) to the backs of the frames. Just a small touch, but it adds so much to these drawers that hold all my daughter's hairclips and bows.
Of course I couldn't stop there, so I made a set of clips for the fancy new Clip Drawer! These were painted with my favorite mint green nail polish. I like the glossy look the nail polish has!
