Kids Summer Mod Podge Plates Craft

Hey there, Design Dazzle readers! I’m Abbey from The Cards We Drew and I’m excited to be here at Design Dazzle today as part of the Summer Camp series!! As a kid growing up, my grandma was an avid crafter and one craft I ALWAYS associate with summer is the easy mod podge plates craft! My grandma would bring tons of fabric, mod podge, and clear plates and let us make my mom mod podge plates to decorate her kitchen with.
