Craft idea – Christmas decoupage gifts

A lovely festive idea for decoupaging Christmas images onto pebbles and stones, or candles and plain soaps, to give as gifts. Start making these now in your art & craft sessions, so you have plenty to use as presents when the big day approaches.

Thanks to Adriana’s Art Studio for sharing her ideas with us.

You Will Need

  • Plain wax candles, soaps and stones
  • Acrylic paints
  • Brushes or decoupage sponges
  • Pre-cut decoupage images (wrapping paper is a great source of festive images)
  • Mod podge glue
  • Varnish (for the pebbles if placing them outside)

What To Do

Wash your stones and let them dry. Then add a coat of acrylic paint. Once dry, add your desired image, using the glue to stick it on, and then an extra layer of glue for protection and as a form of varnish. For a personalised touch, print residents’ pictures to decorate the stones with, making a perfect gift for their loved ones.
