Glass Cutting Board Fall Update

Fall is here and Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  Things are so different this year as we deal with the covid pandemic and its' affect on everyone! Most of us are sheltering in place and practicing social distancing. I'm so thankful for my crafting opportunities and social media families right now to help keep me busy! 

Today, I'm joining a group of talented bloggers to bring you this awesome Fall Crafts & Decor Blog Hop! 
For this blog hop I'm sharing how to update a glass cutting board I got from the Dollar Tree. This is a fun and easy craft to make and I think you will captivate your family and friends with a new and interesting design if you do make one! And the best part, you can make this for Fall or any season for that matter and also for holidays, special occasions and even for everyday use just by switching up the napkin and background patterns.  As with most of my projects, I'm concentrating more than ever on making and sharing crafts that anyone can do and are inexpensive to make. 

Let's begin by gathering the supplies you will need:
  • Glass cutting board - Round, 7.75" Dollar Tree
  • Napkin - Leaf shape, Wegmans
  • Plaid paper design
  • Mod Podge - Matte finish
  • DAP RapidFuse - clear multi-purpose adhesive
  • Scissors, scraper blade, acetone(nail polish), paper towel, plastic baggy  

Look how cool and unique these napkins are! I found them at Wegmans in the home entertaining section of the store! They carry the best seasonal items for the home!
Let's begin by removing the silicone feet from the back of the glass cutting board using a razor scraper. 
Then use 100% acetone (nail polish) on a paper towel to remove the stickiness that was left.  You can also use rubbing alcohol, but that's hard to find right now.  And then wash the board with liquid detergent to remove any residue, dirt and grime from the glass and let dry. 
While the glass cutting board is drying, cut one of the leaf patterns from the napkin following the outline. Then separate the plain white layers from the printed leaf design.
Next, apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the facing of the leaf .  .  .
and lay it on the center back side of the glass cutting board, face down. 
Smooth out the napkin leaf using a plastic baggy.
And then let it dry. 
I found a free pretty plaid design online to compliment the leaf colors. Plaid is quite trendy right now, and has become a favorite all time style that works with just about any home decor theme - from traditional, to farmhouse, to modern. I copied the plaid pattern and enlarged it in Word and printed it out on regular printer paper. But you can also use a scrapbook or paper stock pattern, too. 
Next, apply a layer of dish washer safe Mod Podge to the plaid paper and .  .  .
center the paper on the leaf glass cutting board .  .  .
smoothing the paper out along the entire back and let dry. 

Once dry, cut off the excess paper around the glass cutting board.
After applying a few more coats of Mod Podge and letting it dry completely, attached the silicone feet using a clear multi-purpose glue, to complete the look.

Still perfect for slicing, and dicing - and for any decorative purposes, too!

  8. Stunning idea Gail and those napkins are really awesome. What a great find. Isn't it strange how each country is different. We have no problems finding rubbing alcohol, but dishwasher safe mod podge is a whole other story.
