Temporary Decoupage anyone?

Should you happen to have some old windows around, like the ones in my pictures, great. If not, you can still do this on any window (or mirror)  in the house also! We are -temporary decoupaging-!

This is what you’ll need:

  • Some fancy paper napkins of your choice
  • scissors
  • small brush for water (makes ripping the napkin easier)
  •  larger brush (like your baking brush for the “decoupage”-part)
  • egg white (straight from the egg, not whipped)

Steps:

Cut out your flowers, bunnies  or whatever floats your boat. Or like me, I like it a bit more rustic, follow along  with a small brush and some water where you want to rip the napkin. This way you can just ‘pull’ away with some pointy scissors on a flat surface (hope that makes sense)? It’s just this way you can control easier where you rip the napkin.

Next you toss the 2 back layers of the napkin as you will just use the top layer only.

Now you place the top layer on the backside of your decorative window (or front, doesn’t matter as long as it does not get wet from rain etc.) and “glue” with the egg-white-soaked brush. Start in the middle and gently work your way out. You now can place your project on its spot. It will dry nicely and odorless! If you are tired of it and want to use a different napkin for Thanksgiving or Christmas for example; soak it with a sponge for a minute or two and wash your windows and start over. If you have questions just ask.
