Fabric Jingle Bells with Mod Podge

Add Fabric & Glitter to Your Jingle Bells!

Isn’t it fun to add your own special touch to Christmas and holiday decor?  I think so!  I used two kinds of Mod Podge and a few other cool products I received from Plaid to give these jingle bells a glittery fabric flair.  It’s easy to do!  I’ll show you how…

Crafty Supplies

I’m using some big jingle bells I got at my local craft store, fabric, Mod Podge Gloss and (the lovely) Sparkle Mod Podge as well as Folk Art Extreme Glitter (silver) and Chunky (gold) Glitter acrylic paint.  Need a big glittery look?  Try the Folk Art Chunky Glitter acrylic paint.  It gave the plaid jingle bell seen in the main photo it’s super glittery look.

Grab a bell and get to Mod Podgin’.

First, cover your jingle bell in Mod Podge.  You can use the glitter or the gloss Mod Podge.  I’m using the gloss for this part.

Add Fabric

Lay your fabric down on top of the Mod Podged areas of the jingle bell.  Smooth the fabric down.  Trim the fabric to a manageable amount.

Add the rest of the fabric, smooth it down and trim away the excess.

Covering with Sparkle Mod Podge for a pretty glitter effect!

Next, cover the fabric with Sparkle Mod Podge.  You’re going to LOVE that stuff!  It works like the regular Mod Podge but adds glitter.  Soooo nice.

The drying stages

Here are a few of my jingle bells in the process of drying.  The one on the right is the closest to being dry.  I just added a layer of Sparkle Mod Podge to the one on the left.  After they are completely dry, I will trim the jagged edges of the fabric.

Bling it on!

 Now that the fabric layer is mostly dry, I turned the jingle bell over and coated it with FolkArt Extreme Glitter acrylic paint.  It helped turn this cute but dull jingle bell into Christmas ready.

Mod Podge Rub-On Transfers

I used Mod Podge Rub-On Transfers to add “Jingle All the Way” to my green jingle bell.  You can see it a bit in the photos.  It was tough to get a good photo of it.  Rub on’s are easy to use.  Guess how you do it?  Yep.  You use that little craft stick and…wait for it…wait for it…rub it on. 😉

Ho Ho Ho!!

    1. Teresa,
      I’m in LOVE with the glittery Mod Podge! I was also stunned by how glittery the chunky and extreme glitter FolkArt acrylic paint was. Try a bottle of that too. I like that it didn’t get glittery everywhere but covered so nicely. I love the look of glitter but hate the mess, these were the perfect products for me to get the effect and not become a glitter monster. LOL!
