DIY Decoupage with Fabric


Hi, I’m Clara from Online Fabric Store Decoupage is a quick and easy way to add interest to otherwise plain surfaces like furniture, boxes, and other crafts. Mod Podge is great for gluing and sealing fabric to surfaces like cardboard, canvas, or wood. So let’s get started. The materials you’ll need are: scraps of fabric, fabric or regular Mod Podge, a paint brush. scissors, and something to decoupage like this letter “O”. First, I’m going to cover the front of this letter “O” with a base layer of fabric. This way the cardboard won’t show when layering fabric later. Cut a piece of fabric a little larger than the surface you’re covering. Brush on a layer of Mod Podge. Lay the fabric on top and press it down. Glue down the overhanging fabric. For the curves, I’m snipping the fabric so it lays smoothly. Next I’m going to cut out a bunch of triangles. Cut a 2 inch strip of fabric. Then, cut diagonal lines to form triangles. Make more triangles from different fabrics. For your project, use any shape you want or just cut random shapes and sizes. If you have a larger flat surface, you could also use a single large piece of fabric instead of layering small pieces. Brush on some Mod Podge, just enough to glue one piece. Press down the fabric and glue the edges. You can place the pieces randomly or in a pattern. For this letter “O”, I’m first covering the sides with overlapping triangles, then the front. Continue to glue on pieces until the object is covered. Fabric made with natural fibers like cotton tend to work best, but other fabrics work too. Finally, go over the entire piece with another coat of Mod Podge. Let the glue dry completely, and the Mod Podge will turn clear providing a durable, decorative finish. From shabby chic to bold and modern, decoupaging with fabric can complement many styles. Thanks for watching this OFS project.
