Our December catalog has launched and inside its pages are beautiful decoupages of botanical flowers. The graphics bring life and feeling. They add a freshness to our winter day just by looking at them. So to go alongside our catalog’s decoupage theme, we thought we’d bring to life a DIY using decoupage itself with the graphics from the catalog.
Here’s how to make a decoupage jar.
What you need:
A cutting board and cutting knife
Graphics (please feel free to save and print the ones below)
All purpose glue
Our December Graphic:
Step One: Choose the graphic you like and cut around it carefully with a cutting knife, making sure you have a cutting mat underneath.
Step Two: When you have finished cutting your graphic, figure out where on the jar you’d like to place it.
Step three: Once you have decided, mix together 50% glue and 50% water to create a watery paste.
Step four: Using a sponge brush, start painting the graphic onto the jar, making sure it gets soaked up in glue, but not too much that it becomes soggy – this could cause the graphic to break apart.
Step five: Once the glue has dried, wet some tissue and wipe away the excess glue from around the graphic, making sure it’s all clean.
And there you have it, a cute little jar to place on your shelf inspired by our December catalog.
