Let’s Create a Mod Podge Paper to Wood Sign with Scrapbook Paper

Scrapbook Paper for Mod Podge Sign

If you like to scrapbook or collect pretty paper then you probably have some paper in mind for a project like this. I was taking my relaxing stroll around the craft store when I saw this pretty paper. It’s perfect for spring and I love to put cute motivational messages around the house. I honestly have tons of these cute embellishments from all the scrapbook kits I buy, but this paper caught my eye. Don’t you agree, you can always use new paper? Now here is another great way to use the embellishments.

From all of our projects we have a growing scrap wood pile and I try to use pieces from it whenever I can. If you don’t have any scrap wood, you can buy a small wooden plaque or rectangle from the craft store or make a small sign with paint sticks. I also used Mod Podge to add glitter to this Believe in Magic Unicorn Sign made from scrap wood.

To get your sign ready, paint it with your desired color. I always get sample cans before I paint so I used Zeus from Sherwin Williams (it’s the color of our hallway & my favorite color in the house). It just matches perfectly. I gave it 2 coats. At first I was going to use white, like in the supplies picture, but I decided I liked Zeus better.

how to apply Mod Podge to paper

Cut your scrapbook paper for the desired piece you want to use. I love the message and the florals on this piece. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the back of your paper with a makeup wedge. Then place on the wood.

Use a scraper or roller to get out any bubbles and press the paper to the wood. I totally forgot I have a Mod Podge roller that I could of used. I’m thinking I need a craft supply list- haha! If you don’t have either a credit card works good too.

How do I seal my paper to wood

To seal your sign, apply a thin coat of mod podge over the paper with the makeup wedge. Let it dry 15-20 minutes between coats. Do between 2-3 coats to seal it, I did 3. Just set a timer and relax while you wait.

After you seal your sign, your new decor is ready to decorate your home. Easy, simple and pretty!

I couldn’t stop at just one so I made some more!
