We put the top tail of the first piece over the second. Then we put the bottom blue tail under the white loop. Then we wove the top blue tail over the white, under the blue, and over the white. Then we carefully pulled each end, keeping it flat and even. Once you master the knot, you can use double strands to make a bigger knot. we did that for our headband. Once you have your knot tied, place it on your head to decide where you want the knot to lay.

To finish the ends we placed another 1 inch wide strip under the ends of the headband. Maegan: my DIY Fashion+Home+Lifestyle.

Homemade Mod Podge – Super Simple DIY | Changing My Destiny.

Edited: As some have missed the notation at the bottom of the post, I want to point out that at no time in this post am I stating that this alternative is equivalent to Mod Podge. Mod Podge is a great product and I highly recommend it; however, this is an excellent alternative option for craft projects. If you are working on a project that you hope to maintain over a long period of time or one that requires special care, you should absolutely be using proper archival resources. To avoid confusion for future readers, I’ve also swapped out ‘Mod Podge’ in some places in exchange for ‘Deco Podge Adhesive’ to avoid confusion with the actual product name.

As a professional teacher on an indefinite motherhood sabbatical, I live by sticky notes.

If I am being honest with myself, it’s more of an addiction. A cheery yellow sticky note posted on my fridge makes that to-do list seem actually conquerable. A blaring orange sticky note attached to that left-over cheesecake in said fridge with the caveat “Carrots are MUCH better for you!” Is sometimes just the encouragement I need. Needless to say, I have sticky notes posted everywhere. And just like that old floral arrangement that you’ve been meaning to toss for years has now become an over-looked and comfortable part of your home decor, I hardly noticed my excessive sticky notes until a stranger pointed them out to me. It was time for a change. I love sitting down on Sunday night to make a weekly meal plan, that of course gets posted on a soothing blue sticky note and adhered to my wall, often crumpled or torn.
