My daughter's room has a bunch of Blue Jean Teddy Bear stuff in it, and I found some of the borders at a store for .85 cents so I had to buy them! But I don't really like borders, so I started to cut out the characters and I want to paste them on the walls in different places.
Then I started thinking about putting a couple on the wooden rocking chair in her room, maybe on one of her shelves, etc.
Has anyone ever done that before? Should I use the paste that's already on the back of it or just use decoupage glue? I'd like to have a shiny sealant on top of it for the wood things but I don't know what to use or how well that works.
Anyone?
Thanks!

I would just use the glue on the  back of the cut out to stick it to the object, then seal it on there using mod podge.  After that is dry either brush or spray on a high gloss varathane.(I'm partial to the spray)

Thanks! I'm going to do that.
I also found a cheap plain lampshade at a garage sale and I covered that with some of the cutouts for her room, its really cute.
