Creative Decoupage Projects

Decoupage projects can range from decorating a few wine glasses to covering an entire dresser. Decoupage crafts are a great way to not only dress up your home, but to also make original and personalized gifts for family and friends. You can invest in decoupage kits or you can use diluted glue and images cut out of magazines. No matter your methods, there's an endless supply of projects you can do.

You can always decoupage boxes to give as gifts or to use for storage. Take family photographs, copy them and decoupage the photos onto storage boxes to store photo albums and other items that have a special memory. You could also decoupage boxes to use as presents or decoupage a cigar box to make a jewelry box for a friend.

Card making decoupage is another great craft. Instead of buying a generic card, you can create personalized cards that say something specifical about the recipient. This way, you give a card that is unique to the individual rather than something that seems "one size fits all."

Decoupage is a versatile craft since you can decoupage just about any firm surface. Try taking a pair of shoes that you rarely wear and dress them up using decoupage. Take a pair of simple high heels and layer fashion images or high-end photography to make them look one-of-a-kind.

Furniture is another great material to decoupage. Be creative. Decoupage the underside of a table or the interior of a closet. This will make your home something special and personal. You can decoupage the inside of your dresser drawers or try something bolder by layering the outside of your refrigerator.

The sky is the limit when it comes to decoupage projects. With a little bit of creativity and some imagination, you can create personalized and fun gifts and decor.
