Hello everyone it's Jeanette here again and lately I've been going mad decoupaging literally everything that doesn't move on my craft desk!! I've been using old dictionary pages as my paper and it's been working wonderfully with Helmar Decoupage and Craft Paste. Then I came to my dolly pegs and the book paper wasn't going to be as straightforward as a box so I decided to use my trusty paper napkins instead and thought I would share the proces with you.
You will need dolly pegs, paper napkins a brush and Helmar Decoupage and Craft Paste.
Firstly give your peg a thin layer of Helmar Decoupage and Craft Paste
Once the peg is completely covered, gently roll it along your paper napkin (using only one layer of the napkin) trying to make the join where the gap in the peg is.
Allow to dry off just briefly (a few minutes) and then trim the napkin around the peg.
Secure all the edges and cut through the paper where the slit of the peg is and trim. Once the peg is completely dry, apply another coat of Helmar Decoupage and Craft Paste. This should dry pretty quickly if you stand it on an old packaging box or you could use your heat gun for a quicker finish.
And that's it!!! Fun little dolly pegs that actually take less than 5 minutes to make and once they are dry they are ready to hold your lace, ribbon or use in any project you like.
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you will give Helmar Decoupage and Craft Paste a try, it dries to a lovely matte finish and is wonderful to use.
