These are the things you will need to decoupage a screwdriver:
- A screwdriver
- A metal file
- Magazines (or another source of pictures)
- Mod Podge or other decoupage glue
- A brush for the glue (I used an old toothbrush)
And here is how you do it:
First, you will need to scuff up the hard plastic handle in order to create a porous surface for the glue to adhere to. If you skip this step, your pictures will end up peeling right off the hard plastic as soon as the glue dries.
Then cut out some fun pictures from magazines. An example is this hilarious selection of animals that I found in Martha Stewart Living:
Now you are finally ready for the decoupaging! Make sure you cover your workspace with something like newspaper (or in my case, a paper bag) because this project gets very messy very fast.
Use your brush to coat the handle of the screwdriver in glue, then stick the photos all over it.
The reason why I love using Mod Podge glue is because it doubles as the glue and the sealant in one. This way, once you finish sticking on all the photos, all you have to do is cover the whole thing in one more coat of the Mod Podge and leave the project to dry.
I did this project in the morning, left it out to dry while I was gone all day, and when I came home it looked like this:
I absolutely love it and I hope you do to!
