Supplies you’ll need to decoupage on wood:
- Wood Surface – I used a Coffee Mug Cutout that I found HERE.
- Mod Podge
- Black/White Buffalo Plaid Scrapbooking Paper
- Paint Brush
- Black Magic Dixie Belle Gel Stain
Before I added the decoupage details to this project, I painted the edges of the mug cutout with Dixie Belle Gel Stain in the color Black Magic. Doing this step before you begin with the decoupage will create a more finished look in the end.
Once that was dry, it was time to decoupage!
I began the process by tracing the shape of my cut out onto the scrapbook paper.
Once that was traced, I cut out the shape and grabbed my Mod Podge. Mod Podge is just the brand of glue that I used for this project. There are lots of decoupage glues on the market, but Mod Podge is probably the most widely used.
Now it’s time to learn how to decoupage! Begin by painting a layer of the Mod Podge onto the area where you will be applying the paper.
Next, place the paper onto the surface and let dry. Once it’s dry, use a sanding block to knock of any excess paper that may be hanging over the edges.
Isn’t the end result super cute!!
