Fabric Frame Mod Podge Redo

Am I the last person in the crafty bloggisphere to find out that you can mod podge with fabric?

I had no idea!

This is amazing. I am so glad I found this out. I had this not-so-chic wood framed mirror that I found in a dark corner in my sister's room (we have an understanding when it comes to sharing things...usually with clothes, but I don't think she knew this mirror even existed. So, we're all good!).

Anyways, I wanted to put it up in our room. I knew that I didn't want to put it up "as-is," but I have found out the hard way that I am THE WORST painter! Luckily, I saw a blog post about covering a picture frame with fabric (sorry, I don't remember where I saw it, but thanks!).

So here is the original frame...

And this here is all you need to turn blah into Ta-Da!
I used these fabric squares that I got at Joann's. I LOVE them so much. I don't even know who makes them but the patterns are gorgeous! Then, I used my Mod podge that I've had for years to stick the lovely squares directly onto the frame.

*side note: This was originally a mirror, however, I broke that while trying to put it back in the frame. 7 years of bad luck, I know, I know. So now, this frame that I am so IN LOVE WITH is sitting barren on our lavender wall. We plan to do something with it soon...I'll let ya know.

What do you think? Do you love this concept as much as I do?


  1. It came out so nice-great job!

  2. Oh yes that is rad! totally love it. I saw this from a tweet from Amy at Mod Podge Rocks. I am glad I did. Awesome. Thanks for inspiring.

  3. First of all, you are not the last person. I didn't know either! Good to know! Secondly, cute! and thirdly, I love how you've painted that wall!! I think I might have to do something similar in my house. :)

  4. Hi Lindsay, I just stumbled on your blog (link from some link from so other person's blog, can't remember how). I love how you are the Quiet Crafter. And I too just found out about fabric and modpodge. Oh the possibilities.

    And I love your newborn caps.
