Try your hand out at decoupage with this project from Tiffany Windsor of Inspired at Home using wallpaper. This quick and easy decoupage bottle makes a beautiful handmade gift when filled with aromatic bath salts.

Materials

  • Mache shape
  • Acrylic paint - ivory
  • Brush – ½” flat
  • Aleene’s® Instant Decoupage Sealer & Finish
  • Wallpaper – floral design
  • Bath salts (see recipe below)
  • Plastic zip bag for salts


Instructions

  1. Paint mache shape inside and out. Set aside to dry.
     
  2. Cut floral design(s) from wallpaper. Determine placement on front of mache design. Mark and cut wallpaper design along lid line.
     
  3. Brush Instant Decoupage on back of cut out design and on surface of mache. Place design on shape gently moving for proper placement.
     
  4. Brush over top of cut out with Instant Decoupage. If needed, use your finger to gently press out any air bubbles or wrinkles that appear. Repeat for top design. (I also decoupaged a strip of matching wallpaper around the top knob.)
     
  5. Brush Instant Decoupage over all sides. Set aside to dry.
     

Tiffany’s Designer Tips: You can turn this pretty decoupage container into a lovely gift by filling it with Scented Bath Salts. Just mix ½ cup kosher salt, ½ cup Epsom salts, ½ cup baking soda. Add 10 drops of your favorite organic essential oil. Mix well, pour into zip top bag and insert. Add a little handwritten note that tells your recipient about the essential oil flavor and to add to the bath by the tablespoon. For a design variation, before you apply your wallpaper decoupage design or inspired word, lightly stencil a background image on the surface. On this design, I used a bamboo design stencil to give a very subtle textured effect. For more bath salt recipes, check out this resource.

Great idea for those beautiful wallpaper samples we can get our hands on. I'm thinking about making matching sets in different sizes to fill with some of the recipes of salts for a spa type gift set for gifts this holiday. Kim

Can someone please guide me to a site that sells these mache bottles? Thanks...............
