Hi all! This week on Ideas by Dalba I bring you my second project of my Spring inspired May blog series. This week my project is a two-part creation. I will be sharing with you how I make a super cute matching set of cup and saucer using an easy decoupage technic.
I purchased my supplies at Target and Micheal’s. *Just a side note – Micheal’s has a 40%off coupon this week (until 5/11/16) for any one regular priced item. Always check their circular for deals!* The cup and saucer I already had at home. Basically, I had a cup and saucer that did not match and I wanted to make a matching set.
Supplies needed for this project:
- Mod Podge Glue (dishwasher safe gloss) – $7.99 From Target
- Foam Brushes – $2.54 (on sale) From Michaels
- Decoupage Paper – $3.82 (on sale) From Michaels. I chose a print that reminded me of Spring, but you can choice any pattern you like!
- Scissors (I already had a pair at home)
- A glass plate (I had one at home) – you can purchase one like this from Amazon make sure the plate you get does not have ridges.
- Glass cup (I had one at home) – you can purchase these from Amazon. *Even though both the plate and cup come in a four pack these are the ones I recommend.
- sharp knife
This project is very simple to make, but it does that a while to complete. Let me explain why. When you apply the glue you have to wait for 1-2 hours of drying time between coats before you can apply more glue. Additionally, the instructions on the glue say that you have to “cure” your project for 28 days! Yup, a whole 28 days. But if you place your piece in a conventional oven for 2-3 hours at a low temperature you can speed up the curing period.
