DIY Gift Ideas — Make Your Own Mod Podge

MOD PODGE - Homemade Mix 50% Elmers glue and 50% water in a jar. Wish I would have known about this a couple days ago.. Mod Podge isnt cheap!

Fast and Easy Paper Mache Recipe :: Paper Mache is real easy to make. You simply mix equal parts of flour and water then add some salt and stir it up. I usually make a batch that has two cups of flour, two cups of water and 1 tablespoon of salt and mix it up. It makes enough for a nice pinata. Newspaper is the usual paper I use, but other papers give different textures.

Add orange peels (or any citrus peel) to a quart of white vinegar in a closed container and let it set for two weeks. Combine citrus/vinegar solution half/half with water and use for cleaning. Works on floors, tile, fixtures, etc. Smells good and is tough on scum! Best of all there are no chemicals.
