How To Decoupage Using A Iron

Doing Things the Easy Way

Supplies needed:

  • Iron
  • Mod Podge
  • Towel
  • paintbrush or foam brush
  • The item you want to Decoupage
  • paper or material of your choice

With this method, there are many different things you can decoupage on: such as wood, plastic, furniture, and more. If it can be ironed, it can be done. I have done this on furniture, wood cut-outs, plastic reindeer, and poster board cutouts.

To begin you need your item of choice, material or paper, mod podge, a paintbrush, and a towel. Spread your towel out. If you are doing this on furniture, you can skip the towel step. Apply a thin coat of mod podge to the item of your choosing. Let that dry for approximately 20 to 30 mins. The mod podge will not be glossy when it’s ready. Once the mod podge is dry, place your material or paper over your project. If you’re using a wood cut out, you can cut paper or material first if you like by tracing the item out and cutting with a pair of scissors.

Getting Ready to Finish Up

Then, turn your iron to 300 degrees, or a medium setting, and allow it to heat up properly. Place the item on a towel with mod podge already on and dried. Your iron should be heated and ready to go. Place paper or material on top of the item. Make sure you are lined up properly and place your iron on top and iron like you are something. Move the iron around slowly, especially around the edges to make sure you get a complete seal. If you are doing this on furniture, place material or paper on drawer or area you want to decoupage and iron. Mod podge will adhere to paper or material. The heat reactivates the mod podge and gives it a great bond to the item.

Once dried, you may want to apply a thin coat on top especially if applying on furniture. I love doing the Decoupage this way. It is so simple and easy. If you’re applying to furniture and you have a jagged edge, material, or paper hanging over, take a sanding block and go over the edges lightly. This should remove the extra easily.

I've only been watching a couple of months but I always look forward to her crafts and going shopping with her. She lets you know when something isn't going as planned but always improvises. I have enjoyed a renewal in my crafting and she is always so helpful. Thank you Annie!
