Jane Eyre Plaque



If you or someone you know loves Jane Eyre, here's a special craft idea. The Jane Eyre Plaque from I Love to Create features the beloved character and some of her notable quotes. Make this craft for yourself or as a wonderful gift.

Jane Eyre Plaque


  • Aleene's® Paper Glaze
  • Crafty Chica® Tango Permanent Fabric Markers™
  • Crafty Chica® Chunky Glitters
  • 25696 Goddess Gold
  • Collage Pauge® Instant Decoupage
  • Aleene's® Original Tacky Glue®
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper towels
  • Scissors
  • Photocopied pages from the Jane Eyre novel
  • Lace trim
  • Fuzzy trim
  • Color copy image of Jane Eyre
  • 8”x10” canvas
  • Print out of quote


  1. Cut up the copied pages of novel text. Use Collage Pauge® and paintbrush to apply pages to canvas, covering it completely. Repeat prior step to apply the image of Jane. Let dry.
  2. Using the Crafty Chica® blue marker, draw an outline around the image, as well as around the border of the canvas. Before the ink dries, wipe it away with a paper towel to create a “stained” look.
  3. Tear away the edges of the printed quote and use the purple marker to “stain” the edges. Use Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue® to adhere quote to the canvas.
  4. Lay down paper towel on work surface. Place canvas on paper towel. Add swirls of Paper Glaze™ and sprinkle on Crafty Chica® glitter. Tap away excess glitter onto paper towel. Let dry.
  5. Use Tacky Glue® to add fuzzy and lace trims around the edges and a trim at the top for hanging.

This is a great idea for the book lover! I adapted the idea to cover a sturdy shoe box with book art and quotes to use as a desk organizer.
