If you’re looking for a school holiday activity to do with the kids, look no further! Decoupage allows them to let their creativity shine with a little keepsake for their room.

Here is how to do it.


What You Need

  • Wooden cut out of initial
  • Favourite wrapping paper
  • Selleys Aquadhere
  • Paint brush
  • Water
  • Scissors
  • Small bowl

How To

  1. Cut your wrapping paper to fit the wooden initial.
  2. Paint Selleys Aquadhere liberally on to the wrapping paper and paste onto the wooden initial.
  3. Gently smooth out until all bubbles are removed. Allow to dry for 30 minutes.
  4. In a small bowl, mix 2 parts water to 1 part Selleys Aquadhere.
  5. Apply this mix to the top of the wrapping paper as a protective seal.

Handy Tips 

  • The more layers you apply, the more the decoration will recede into the background and look like a painting. If you do multiple layers, ensure you allow to dry between coats.
