Today I have one of my favorite DIY for you, which puts me in a good mood from the very morning. I decorated ordinary wooden hangers with inscriptions using the decoupage technique. I was not quite sure how self-prepared subtitles would pass the exam, but it turned out that the idea works great, and I have unlimited possibilities creative 🙂
This way you can personalize anything you want, so even if you don’t feel like hanging hangers, you may find another item that deserves a new life.
To prepare you will need:
- The item you want to decorate
- A printer, preferably a laser, but an inkjet printer will also be good
- A4 sheet
- Third layer of any paper napkin
- Decoupage glue
- Brush, adhesive tape, scissors
- At the beginning we have to prepare the subtitles, e.g. in pro I’m playing Word. It is best to make a test print to match the size of the inscription to the decorated object.
- Stick a napkin layer onto a plain white sheet of paper (you need to cut it to the correct size).
- We print the inscriptions on the napkin.
- We tear them gently.
- We glue the inscriptions to the decorated object with decoupage glue. If the print was made on an inkjet printer, let’s use a small amount of glue and gently smear it with a brush, because the ink may smudge (but as you can see, it didn’t happen for me, which I was most afraid of)
- Leave it to dry, and then just enjoy a beautifully decorated object. If the inscription is uneven, we can – after it is completely dry – gently rub it with sandpaper and cover it with varnish.
And this is how the hangers look „in action“ 🙂
Hope you liked the tutorial. Let me know if you would see such hangers at home.
