Team DK-oupage Letters

We love a joint craft project, so on one of our days off this week we headed over to HobbyCraft to get some craft inspiration. We saw all kinds of neat stuff, but decided to try a little decoupage. The only problem is... HobbyCraft is way over priced!!! So, like aways we headed over to the Range. The Range doesn't have the best selection of craft supplies, but it had everything we needed for this little project.

Here's what we used...
- 2 x cardboard letters (£1 each)
- 2 x old soft paint brushes 
- Decoupage paper (£2.99) 
- PVA Glue 

We decided on a cute music themed paper for our letters.
Step 1. We cut our paper up into small random shapes ready for gluing. 

Step 2. We painted a thin layer of glue onto the areas we wanted to cover. We then painted another thin layer of PVA over the paper to ensure it was secure. 

Step 3. We repeated this process until one whole side was fully covered. We left our letters to dry for around 15 minutes, flipped them over and repeated the process. 

Here are both mine and D's letters fully covered and dry. The entire process took around 45 minutes (includes drying time). 

Have fun making your very own decoupage letters.
