Decoupage letters
Step-by-step plan

Decoupage letters

Our Decoupage is a DIY must have: it’s a 2-in-1 that works as paint as well as glue. It enables you to make collages or decorations with different materials you have lying around your house like napkins, magazines and newspapers. It also can be used on a variety of grounds: wood, cardboard, clay and more!

In this step-by-step tutorial, we’ll be creating decoupage letters! To give the letter an even better look, it’s painted with our Metallic paint. The Metallic paint has a quick drying time (10 minutes!) and becomes water resistant. This allows you to easily continue with the Decoupage without having to wait for too long. You can hang these personalised letters on the wall or on your bedroom door.
