Learn To Decoupage
Decoupage is a paper based craft that uses decorative decoupage papers, napkins or rice papers to decorate and cover lots of different shapes and surfaces. Papier mache or MDF shapes can be used like boxes, letters, jewellery boxes, animal shapes or photo frames. Decoupaging items from around the house like tin cans, old vases, drawer inserts and chairs is also a great way to breathe new life into old items
