DIY Decoupage Mannequin


  • Mannequin (or any other hard surface of your choice – this mannequin started out as a plain grey velour fabric)
  • Print tissue paper
  • White tissue paper
  • Duct Tape
  • Aleene’s Decoupage – matte finish
  • Sponge brush


  1. Apply duct tape over any openings in mannequin.
  2. Tear white tissue and brown printed tissue into large pieces (approximately 4″ x 4″.)
  3. Working one area at a time, brush decoupage medium onto surface of mannequin slightly larger than torn pieces. Lay white tissue into glue and immediately brush over tissue with glue. Be sure to keep your brush very moist with decoupage medium! Apply several layers of white tissue paper. Let dry. (If desired, use fan to speed up the drying process.)
  4. Repeat gluing process with brown printed tissue. Let dry.
