I made a new one! This one is from a book on the art of Chinese Firework advertisements. (Go used book store!)

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Custom Light Switch Plates (w/ video tutorial link) on: August 09, 2012 08:00:22 PM
We moved into a new house last year and now that we've finished unpacking and settling in, we're trying to add in some personality.

My new favorite project is these fun light switch plates- they are quick and easy to make, and I keep finding more designs that I want to use- all these came from the used book store or thrift store- so each plate cost about $1-$2 to make.

I use the technique from this tutorial, which I like better than the modge-podge ones I tried before:


Here are some of the ones I've done so far:

This is my first set, made from national geographic magazines and an old monster move magazine:

The flowers are from a "Flowers of Western Australia" calendar- the animals are from an Inuit Art calendar- the bear is from a birthday card- and the body parts (my favorite!) are from an old copy of Grey's Anatomy:

These are my most recent- I picked up some old comic books and children's books which have great pictures at just the right size:

Can't wait to try some more- but I'm going to run out of light switches pretty soon. Guess what everyone I know is getting for Christmas?  Wink

This is great! I've never worked with such big needles before- I imagine they are tough on the hands. Congrats on finishing such a big project!

This is beautiful! I got a ukulele for my birthday- and I would love to try something like this.

Did you line the inside with anything?

These are great! Did you do it as one continuous piece, or did you split it in segments and then sew it together?

This is so cool! Can't wait to try it!

Did you find the lettering for "PARIS" online too? I'm amazed at how even it looks- I can never cut out or sew on letters than well.
