Monogram Decoupage plate with fabric Mod conglomeration of rocks
You can Fawnda show you how easy it is to make a decoupage plate – and this is something special, because it contains a fabric and a monogram!
Here I’m Fawnda from fireflies and fruit candy, a little DIY craft blog I co-author with my best friend Jeannine is a little about me:. I'm a SAHM (a stay-at-home-mom) to a son. I am married to the most amazing man (sorry ladies – I found him first!).
we Took our son from Korea about 10 months. He is 19 months old and he is really a joy and it is probably one of the sweetest children in the world (along with you)! I high school mathematics Student teaching (before I was a SAHM I was a math teacher).
I love to Tinker with it! I discovered my sewing machine about 8 months and I love it. I also love to make cards. I am addicted to the scrapbook-paper-packs (they have a theme for everything, and I want them all). I also think that the Mod-rock hodgepodge and I have a fun craft for you today: monogram cloth-backed boards.
Monogram Decoupage plate
Here is what you will need:
Clear glass panel fabric (enough to cover your plate)
Mod hodgepodge gloss
Scrapbook paper (enough for your monogram)
1. Make your monogram. I handed over free of charge, my “N” but you could print out a letter from your computer to the back of your paper with the mirror image Printing option. I have also followed, to know the bottom of my plate, how big to make the letter.
2. Cut out your cover letter with an X-Acto knife.
Optional: I distressed my letter with some brown ink.
3. Cut a piece of fabric in a square, I know that about an inch larger on each of the sides of the plate (the plate is hard to see, but it is clear).
4. You place the plate on a Cup with the bottom to the top. I found it was easier to work with in this way!
5. Brush on a coat of Mod-smorgasbord on the inner circle only for now.
6. You can place your monogram upside down on the Mod-smorgasbord.
7. Brush on Mod smorgasbord on your monogram. Make sure you keep the monogram flat and to press any bubbles. Now – let it dry (a sandwich or something).
8. If it is dry, bush on more Mod smorgasbord around the plate . . . be generous with him.
9. Place the fabric over your plate and flatten out any bubbles.
10. Brush on more Mod smorgasbord on the upper side of the fabric. Let it air dry. . . this may take a while, so you just insert it from the side. Or, you can do what I did and check it every 10 minutes or so. . . is it done yet? – no. . . is it done yet? – no . . .
11. When it is FINALLY dry, around cut the extra fabric by cutting around the plate as close as you can. If you are concerned about the edges, you can roast a brush a little more Mod smorgasbord around the edge.br>
