A Mother's Day Decoupage Project With Easy Decoupage Instructions
Mother's Day is a great time for homemade gifts. Each year, I take the time to make something for my mom and I hope you will too. The following frame can be made using any patterned paper, so feel free to choose something that will suit her and her decor.
You can also choose to cut out your designs instead of using a whole piece of paper like I did here. That's part of the fun of decoupage. I just happened to fall in love with this artistically distressed paper and thought it would look best whole.

Mother's Day Decoupage Inspiration Frame Instructions:
Before applying glue, it is really helpful to dampen the paper with a spray bottle. This will allow the paper to tighten and then relax, which will prevent wrinkles that often occur as the paper dries from the glue.
Above: In the first image, the paper curls up (tightens). In the second image the paper flattens (relaxes) and is ready to be glued down.
Also, when applying glue it can be helpful to start by gluing a corner of the paper only. Once that is glued exactly where it should be, you can work your way across, applying glue section by section, smoothing and cleaning extra glue with a clean cloth or paper towel. Work gently as the paper will be delicate.
