I have taught the centuries old craft of “Decoupage” to ages 5 to 95. The word decoupage comes from the French word “decouper”, meaning “to cut” and this ancient art form was known as a “poor man’s art”. Today using readily available supplies like napkins, tissue paper, photos, keepsakes, fabric, magazines, calendars, drawings, prints, etc., that are glued and sealed onto a wide variety of surfaces like glass, mirrors, furniture, plates, canvas, boxes, wood, plastic, jewelry, metal, windows, trunks, tile, etc. you are able to create something that is crafty, practical, or even fine art. Today’s decoupage is a fun, creative way to recycle, repurpose, or create a one-of-a-kind design!
