Me In The World Of Decoupage

A couple of months ago I wanted to make something with decoupage. I didn’t know much about how to do it, so I had to look it up in the Internet. Probably most of you know what decoupage is and how to do it, but for those of you who don’t, here is a link to a helpful article – http://www.wikihow.com/Decoupage.

Below, I’ll show you my accomplishment, as well as some comments about my struggle throughout the process.

I have a very old vase. Unfortunately, when I was little, I broke it once. My mom glued the pieces together and everything was great, till little me broke it again. Of course, my mom glued the pieces together again, hoping this is the last time she does that. As you might guessed, it wasn’t. Throughout the years some pieces were nowhere to be found and the process of glueing the remaining once together became harder. However, a couple of months ago I decided to try to fix the vase with decoupage.

When I was little, I collected napkins. It was my hobby. I was so excited to see all of my lovely napkins once again. To choose the right one was harder than I though – they were all so beautiful.

To start the whole process I needed the vase, a napkin, a glue(this one was also a lacquer), a flat brush, a white paint and a smile. This is what I did:

  1. I painted the vase with a white paint. I let it dry for a while.
  2. I separated all the lairs of the napkin, because I needed only the top one.
  3. I cut the napkin, so it was easier to glue it to the surface of the vase.
  4. I started to glue the napkin pieces to the vase’s surface. I also did the edges, but not the inside.
  5. Once I finished, I polish it with the lacquer. For me it was easier to buy a glue, that is a lacquer as well.

I am very satisfied with the final result and can’t wait for another project with decoupage.
