Decoupage Dominoes

By:

You'll be surprised at how decorative even dominoes can be with this creative decoupage project. You can create an entirely new game or a fun addition to your decor by using your own decorative paper.

Materials:

  • Set of wooden dominoes
  • Mod Podge gloss and Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
  • Spray paint or acrylic paint
  • Paint brush
  • Pretty papers
     

Instructions:

  1. If you're super serious about crafting you will want to sand and prime your dominoes.  I am not that serious, so I just lined them all up and gave them several coats of spray paint.



  2. I went back and forth on the idea of sanding down the edges to give them a shabby chic look but in the end decided that wasn't a good idea.  All of the tiles should look the same when they're turned over and they shouldn't have any distinguishing marks on them.  So... I just left them as is.

  3. While you're waiting for your tiles to dry, pick out your pretty papers.  You need a different paper for every number you have (six).  You can cover the blanks too but this could be a little confusing when you're playing.  It's best to just leave them blank.

  4. You're probably still waiting for your paint to dry so now's a good time to cut out your tiny little squares of paper to cover each of the numbers.  I used my Silhouette but you could do this by hand.  My squares are 18millimetres square.  Make sure to pre-measure your tiles to see if it's the same before you start cutting.

  5. Once your paint has finally dried, start adhering your papers.  The easiest way to do it is one number at a time.  Gather all of the one's and paste down the same paper on top of each of them, then all of the two's and so on.

  6. I found it easier to brush the glue onto the backs of the paper squares instead of directly onto the tiles.

  7. Next add a nice thick layer of Dimensional Magic to the entire top of your dominoes.

  8. This gives them a super glossy, resin look.

  9. It goes on a bit milky but dries super clear.  Just watch for air bubbles.  I put mine on so thick I had to let them dry overnight.

  10. I couldn't put these lovely tiles back into their old box so I even made them a new holder!
