Decoupage a Beginner Friendly Technique
I chose to post this decoupage container for the people who told me that they were “extremely craft challenged”. Decoupage is a great craft for people who feel that they do not have the ability to create or design a craft project. It is also a great project for anyone who is seeking a budget friendly craft project.
What is decoupage?
It is an art technique used to decorate a surface. You start with cut-outs of paper, linoleum, plastic, or other flat material. Then you glue into place the cut-outs on the surface you wish to cover. You finish by applying a varnish or lacquer over the surface.
What materials were used for this project?
The supplies used to create this project was a paper maché container, Mod Podge®, sponge brush and tissue paper. Decoupage project can be made with items that many of use already have in the house–leftover party napkins or wrapping paper.
