This was a fantastic DIY project to make for your desk area and I know you’re going to love this back to school craft for teens. You’re able to customize this with whichever pattern of Decou-Page Paper you prefer. We’ve created two different ones just to show you how this can fit into different areas. Let’s jump into it!What You’ll Need: 2×4 Wooden Block cut at 10” inches| Drill and Large Drill Bit | Moroccan Decou-Page Papers | Americana Multi-Surface in Cobalt | Satin Americana Decou-Page | Paint Brushes | Sanding Block
Heres What You’ll Do:
Step 1: Evenly mark 14 holes with a pencil and use a large drill bit to drill the holes a little over halfway deep.
Step 2: Sand down the rough edges and wipe clean.Step 3: Paint the entire wood piece with Cobalt Multi-Surface paint.
Step 4: Cut your Decou-Page Paper to the size of the sides on your piece of painted wood.
Step 5: After the paint has dried, apply a layer of Decou-Page Satin formula onto the wood block. Place and smooth out the Decou-Page Paper.
Step 6: Apply a finishing layer of Decou-Page and allow to dry. Add your favorite pens and pencils and enjoy!
We used Americana Multi-Surface Waterfront and Gold Basics Decou-Page paper and followed all the same steps as the first one.
