Introduction: Book Decoupage

About: Hello everyone, my name is Ashley. I am a mother of 2, I love to try my hand at crafting. I love natural living and repurposing anything. I am new here and I hope you like my entries.

Easy way to make a piece of art out of an old book. Are You My Mother was my favorite book as a child and I kept it to read to my children. The cover fell off and the pages were messy so turning it into art was a great idea for me to keep it.

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

You really only need a few things to complete this project.

  • Old Book
  • Mod podge
  • Canvas
  • Paint brush

Step 2: Cutting

Cut out your pictures and you can arrange them into an order that you like before gluing.

Step 3: Gluing

Put a layer of glue down. You do not want it to be to thick it will make the paper bubble up. Then lay on your pictures and put a layer of glue on top.

Step 4: Hang Up and Enjoy

When it is all done drying hang it up and enjoy.

    This is an excellent idea!

    My kids have loved-to-death so many of their books. We may have to give this a shot with a few of them (the old books . . . not the kids). ;)

    Thank you!
