Decoupage on wood

Decoupage on wood is a great way to transform a plain piece of wood into a unique and personalized decorative item. Here are the basic steps to create decoupage on wood:


  • A plain wooden object
  • Decorative paper or napkins
  • Decoupage glue or Mod Podge
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Paintbrush


  1. Choose a wooden object that you want to decorate. It can be a wooden box, picture frame, or any other wooden item that you want to personalize.
  2. Select the decorative paper or napkins that you want to use for your design. Make sure the paper is thin and pliable, as it needs to conform to the shape of the wood.
  3. Cut out the pictures or patterns from the paper or napkins that you want to use for your design. You can use scissors or a craft knife to create precise cuts.
  4. Apply a thin layer of decoupage glue or Mod Podge to the area of the wood where you want to place your design. Be sure to cover the entire area.
  5. Place your cut-out pictures or patterns onto the glue, arranging them in a way that looks pleasing to you.
  6. Smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles with your fingers or a paintbrush.
  7. Apply another layer of decoupage glue or Mod Podge on top of the pictures or patterns. This will act as a sealant and help protect your design.
  8. Allow the glue to dry completely, according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  9. Once the glue is dry, you can use sandpaper to sand the edges of the design so that it blends into the wood seamlessly.

Your decoupage wood object is now ready to use or display! With a little bit of creativity and some basic materials, you can create unique and personalized wooden items that showcase your artistic style.
