podgeable sun-catcher

i really like these little plastic "podgeables" shapes - i used 4 together to make a sun-catcher. it's super easy to drill little holes in them for hanging.

for the crown at the top, i dabbed it with a bright yellow-green alcohol ink to give it a marbleized effect. then i outlined the edges with dimensional magic and glitter. the sun shines through this bright piece beautifully!

in the center, i used a blue alcohol ink to tint the flower shape and stamped it with a dotted circle pattern.

i used mod podge to adhere some glittery leaf paper to the circle shape and glued it to the center. the flower is outlined with a gold leaf pen.

i inked the key and then covered it with mod podge and dipped it into some blended blue and gold glitter and added a little bow to the top.

i bent decorative headpins with beads to make all the little hooks and added some bling - it's nice and light and it looks really cute and sparkly hanging in my window!

  2. That's beautiful, Lisa. Love the translucence effect. What are Podgeables and where does one get them?

    1. Thanks! They're plastic shapes, get them at Michaels, made by Plaid, same maker of Mod Podge.
