Add Pizzazz to Your Switch Plates

Another great big THANK YOU to Linda, of A la Mode Stuff , for giving us this easy to follow video tutorial for decoupaging household switch plates. Taking magazine pages, food labels, photographs, etc. and using them to personalize light switch  and electrical plug plates can be a great way to craft with the kids on a rainy (or any) day. When you’re done, you’ll have a great looking addition to your decor and you will have reused materials.  Please remember to wash out the sponge brushes for use again and again for eco-friendliness!

Do you have some ideas for materials to (re) use for decoupaging? Please tell us about it in the comments section. We’d love to hear your ideas!

  1. Oh, this is so timely! I spent the afternoon on my back deck decoupaging a vintage train case with vintage sheet music while my little one covered a cardboard box of her own. Sheet music is easy to find at thrift stores…I love it for all kinds of projects. For someone who can not paint, decoupage is one of my favorite ways to change the surface of something and it’s always so satisfying to complete. Thanks for sharing the video tutorial – will have to give switch plates a try. :)
