I recently did a swap, and this was one of my creations!



The light switch cover is on the left and the outlet cover is on the right!

I loved how quick and cute these came out.  Now I definitely want to redo all of the covers in my home!
These are just paper printed images covered with a few layers of mod podge.  Next time I will make sure that I have the right color of sealant(I accidentally picked up white), as it makes the paper mod  podge easier to apply to thin paper.

Any comments welcome!

Thanks,
Brianna

These turned out great! It's such a quick and cool way to add some wall art to a room. The paper you found is fab!

They are very pretty, and I love the whimsical tone.
How do you apply them? Do you glue them to the switch?

Gorgeous paper, I would never have thought to use it in this way, but it looks fab.

Where did you get the image on the left?  I love it and I think that I would like to make my own lightswitch cover.

Here is the original of the left image.  I had done either a pinterest search for vintage sideshow images or vintage circus.

How do you apply them? Do you glue them to the switch?

I started by using my exacto knife to cut the paper out the same size as the switch and by cutting out the holes as well.
If you cut it out beforehand it will save you a lot of trouble! =)  I learned that one the hard way.
Then apply a few layers of modpoge.
