Did you know Decoupage is a traditional paper craft – the art of decorating an object by gluing colored paper cutouts. The word decoupage comes from the French verb decouper, ‘to cut out’. It was in the 17th century that the craft reached its height of popularity with aristocrats, noble ladies as well as the more humble practitioners trying out the art of decoupage. It is for sure a great way to add decor and interest to all sorts of items in your home. Are you ready to have fun with me and put my small bottle into Shabby Chic home decor accent?

How to decoupage on glass
1. Prepare surface
Once you have selected your glass bottle to decorate make sure that it surface is clean of any stickers
2. Apply your paint
Cover your bottle with a coat of chalk paint. In my case it took 2 coats to have almost full coverage. Let it dry completely in between.
Choose your napkin…. that may be a difficult task at least for me
Just because napkin I chose to decorate my bottle with had some of goldish hues and had overall rustic organic feel I decided to add some of gold to the bottom.
2. Napkin install
Select your favorite portion of your napkin design and cut them out. Separate napkin ply’s . Apply thin coat of Mod- Podge and install the pictures in place.
smooth out bubbles that may possibly happen with a Saran Wrap. Perfect little tip to ensure your napkin will stay intact as you press on it
This step is optional …. I simply felt that my bottle needed a bit more of character and decided to apply a bit of gold paint that I already had at the base. I chose to apply that coat after my Mod-Podge dried completely.
If you follow me for some time you know that I love to add little gentle embellishments to accent my home decor pieces even more. This time my choices were wooden beads strung on the simple twine.
