Decoupage

Decoupage can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 2 hours, depending on what you are decoupaging and how detailed it is. No matter how long it takes decoupaging is always worth it in the end. It is very calming and beautiful to look at!

 

STEP 1:

Collect your materials.

 

For this project you will need:

  • Decoupage paper (Tissue paper and paper from magazines will also work)
  • Modge Podge
  • Paint brush (The firmer the better)
  • Something to decoupage

 

STEP 2:

Rip your paper into tiny pieces.

 

STEP 3:

Dab a tiny bit of Modge Podge onto a piece of what you have chosen to decoupage, and then place a shard of paper on top.

 

STEP 4:

Go over the paper with a thin coat of Modge Podge.

 

STEP 5:

Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the whole item is covered or until satisfied.

 

Now it’s time to show off your creations!
