Check out the following decoupage ideas and use your imagination to create your own decoupage projects:
The Three Bears -Your little girl or boy will be happy to learn that Goldilocks’ three bear friends live right in the bedroom closet. These cute and useful hangers are easy to produce: Each bear’s face is constructed of just nine circles. A set of these would make a lovely gift for any newborn.
Bird Trio- Who wouldn’t enjoy waking up to these little chicks? You can almost hear the chirp, chirp of their cheery conversation. By positioning the birds along the bottom of a drawer, we made them look as if they’re perched on a wire. Our bluebirds are of different patterns and shades of the same color. You can achieve a similar effect using reds (for cardinals), yellows (for canaries), or pinks (for any bird at all). To show the birds’ cheeps, you might add a few musical notes.
Animal Parade- Harriet the Hippo may be the leader of the pack, but Mr. Giraffe is in charge of keeping a sharp watch for any approaching bad dreams — because, of course, he’s got the best sight line. To create this quartet of creatures, we painted the bottom and legs of a wooden crib light green; then we added the decoupage animals and a yellow sun.
Scottish Terrier- What suits a friendly Scottie better than plaid? If you aren’t able find the perfect pattern in a decorative paper, simply photocopy a favorite fabric to make a paper version.
Whale of a Talk- To make William the Whale, enlarge the template and place it on an unpainted stool. With a pencil, extend the waterline that runs through William’s body so it goes to the edges and down the sides of the stool: This creates the sea and the sky. Remove the template. Paint the sky and legs of the stool a light blue, and the ocean a darker shade. After the paint is dry, decoupage the whale; we used darker blue for the eye and underwater section, and different patterns for both of his other parts.
