I’ve been seeing a lot of nice decoupage projects lately, so thought I’d give it a try. I used an abstract design for this, but I think it would be great with a spider web, bat or owl. This project would also be nice in white for the winter holidays. I didn’t have a piece of paper long enough to cover the entire vase, so I wrapped three sides. It would be interesting to create a design on the back side so it will cast a reflection onto the wall.
- Black card stock
- Measuring tape
- Candle holder or vase (preferably cylindrical or rectangular)
- Decoupage glue
- Craft knife and cutting mat
Step 1: Measure your vase or votive holder. Cut paper to the correct width and length.
Step 2: Using your craft knife, cut random abstract shapes over the entire sheet.
Step 3: Brush a very light coat of decoupage glue onto the back of the paper. Center your paper and carefully adhere it to the glass. Press down all areas.
Step 4: Brush over the entire candle holder with a thicker coat of decoupage glue.
Done! If you make this project, please be sure to post a photo to the Make it Monday Flickr pool here.
