Recently, we finished putting together the shipping table in the office. I wanted to add a little color and inspiration to this super functional space, so I decided to frame a quote on the wall.
At first, I framed the quote with a typical white background…but it was missing something. So, I ended up using some supplies I already had for this affordable and fun diy with napkin decoupage.
This diy quote art craft took only a few minutes to assemble. It was so simple that I still had enough energy to put it together after the baby went down for the night! Post contains affiliate links.
First, I peeled the bottom layer off my paper napkins.
I removed the cardboard back of the frame to use as the base for the decoupage.
Then, I cut the napkin to fit onto the outer border of the cardboard, trying to line up the pattern as well as I could.
Next, just gently modpodge on top of the napkin to set it into place. You can use a small brush or your finger. It doesn’t take much modpodge at all since the napkins are so thin.
Once I had the entire border modpodged, I let it dry a bit before I attached the cardstock quote. This way, I can change out the quote whenever I find a new one I love.
I added the quote page centered in the frame using a bit of double sided tape to help it stay put. For the quote, I just picked a pretty font and typed it up in Word.
This diy quote art is just what I wanted, since I am crazy for blue and white prints! It’s nice having some pattern on the wall, especially in my creative space.
Plus, it matches perfectly with the beautiful wall hooks I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby!
This shipping table is so wonderful. It is made out of the laminate bookshelves I refinished a few months ago, along with a butcher block island top. I’m so glad to have it finished before the busy season for my little supplies shop!
I am really loving all the possibilities of decoupage. This same pack of cocktail napkins made tile coasters and a large pair of decoupage vases! It’s amazing how many projects I’m getting done with one pack of napkins! Do you have any other fun decoupage ideas?
