Decopatch!

Decopatching is a brilliant hobby and a great thing to get your children involved with.

You can decopatch pretty much anything and I love love love the finished look.

Any of you thinking what on earth am I talking about and what is decopatch?

Well …

Decopatch is a paper craft using a specific type of paper and glues. I guess you could say it is similar to paper mache but a lot more modern and prettier to look at.
You use patterned or plain papers to create a collage effect over any type of object.
I’ve taken to giving bottles and jars a new look but you can buy plain mache shapes and objects to decorate.

Here is a mache heart that I started one evening.
