Decoupage Switch Cover

Add a seasonal touch to any room by wrapping light-switch covers with holiday paper.
What You Need:

For an even easier alternative,
check hardware stores for acrylic
switchplate covers.

  • Plastic switchplate (available at hardware stores)
  • Holiday gift wrap with a small pattern
  • White crafts glue
  • Water
  • Small disposable cup
  • Crafts knife
  • Small paintbrush

Instructions:

1. Cut gift wrap about an inch larger all around than the switchplate.

2. Glue paper to switchplate. Mix equal parts thick white crafts glue and water in the cup. Using paintbrush to apply adhesive, glue paper to front of switchplate, smoothing out wrinkles as you go along. Fold the excess paper to the back and glue it in place.

3. Make opening. From the back, cut an X across the switch opening. Fold the tabs to the back of the cover and glue them in place.

4. Seal. Using paintbrush, coat the front with two or three coats of the glue mixture. Let dry.
