Looking for something you can do when you're inside beating the heat this summer? Why don't you try decorating or collaging a light switch plate? They’re usually very bland, so adding some color to one will easily jazz up your bedroom!
Light switch plate
Collage pieces (you can use magazine images, scrapbook and wrapping papers, postcards, and even paperdolls!)
Embellishments (think glitter, rhinestones, beads, washi tape, and stickers)
Step 1: Buy a light switch plate (they’re cheap at hardware stores) or unscrew yours from your bedroom wall.
Step 2: Arrange your collage pieces on the switch plate to get an idea of what you want it to look like.
Step 3: Once you have your design, I would suggest taking a photo so that you can refer to it when placing the pieces down on the final piece.
Step 4: Coat your plate in Mod Podge.
Step 5: Begin by putting down the first layer of your collage, or the pieces that appear behind the other images in your photo. Then apply more Mod Podge and work on the next layer, continuing until all of your pieces are glued down.
Step 6: You can give your plate a shiny finish by coating it in Mod Podge, but this can make thin papers wrinkle. Wait until this dries before you continue.
Step 7: Embellish!!!
