It’s probably too early to break out the Halloween decorations (it’s August when I’m writing this), but I honestly LOVE Halloween, and I CAN’T WAIT. So, I thought I’d share this cool Ping Pong Ball Ghost Light Tutorial from Meredith at unOriginalMom.com. It’s a bit of a riff on the traditional cheesecloth ghost decoration (I made these every year growing up as a kid). Meredith uses ModPodge instead of Fabric Stiffiner, but I imagine either would work for this project. You’ll find step-by-step instructions with great photographs on her website. It may be too early to start decorating for Halloween, but it can’t be too early to start making the decorations, can it?!

I got some great free comic books over the last year, and now that I’ve read them, I don’t have a burning desire to keep them. But I hate to just throw them away. I mean, the artwork is cool. So I turned to Pinterest for ideas on what to do with old comics, and ran across this great tutorial by Shala on Don’t Eat the Paste. You can make your own stylish, one-of-a-kind bracelet using old comics, Mod Podge, and a bracelet blank. Shana’s got step-by-step instructions along with pictures that make creating this jewelry masterpiece a snap. Isn’t Mod Podge glorious? I’ve seen great examples of using comics on furniture, shoes, and even coasters.

Following a tutorial in DIY magazine, she Mod Podge’d two Star Wars posters to giant canvases to hang in her son’s Star Wars themed bedroom. She provided the steps to the canvas-poster project in a follow-up post.
Here is a pic of the posters hanging in the room – I love the collection of lightsabers hanging above the Star Wars adorned bed!
I love this idea of posters on canvas – Christy mentioned that the art looks painted on. I bet you could use Mod Podge Brushstroke to really enhance the effect. I’m thinking I may try my hand at it for some upcoming geek gift giving opportunities. What poster would you like to see on canvas?

We are big Harry Potter fans at my house – my husband read every book out loud to us as a family, and of course we saw all the movies. Not only was it fantastic to see the stories played out on the big screen, but it was fun to watch the actors grow older with each new movie. And some surprises there – Neville Longbottom, anyone??
But I digress. Let’s get on with the geek-crafting sharing. I saw this Harry Potter Chess Set with fun matching bag on Mod Podge Rocks recently, and knew you all would want to see it too. Thankfully the original project is shared on Instructables, so you can conjure up your own magically strategic set, too!
