Mod Podge a Food Container-Tutorial

 Start with a empty, clean container.  Ones with lids are a plus
 You'll need...
► empty container
► fabric of choice
► Mod Podge 
► paint brush to smooth out Mod Podge
 I started spreading the Mod Podge on the back, so the seam would not be seen.
 Do small sections at a time.  That helps to keep the fabric smooth.  Continue until you've went all the way around container.
 My container was almost 6" high, so I measure the fabric at 6", so there wasn't much waste.
Trim the little you have hanging over the bottom.
 waaaaa-laaaa a completed fabric covered food container with tons of space inside.


  1. Good idea! Would like to mod podge a container, make it a small trash can for a bedroom.

  2. I have a question.... I've been using Mod Podge on some projects, and find that even after it dries for days, it's still sort of sticky? I made coasters with tiles and paper, and after I was done with them, I stacked them up, and they ALL stuck together?! The Mod Podge was still sticky even after four days of drying. Maybe I'm using the wrong kind? Any advice?

  3. if you live where it is highly humid, as in Dayton , Ohio, it can indeed take days for Mod Podge to lose its tackiness. I find that Mod Podge dries faster that Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish. I have been tempted to put things in the oven after I've baked something and turned off the heat. Perhaps the slow baking would dry things faster.
