Decoupaged Heart Box

I had a ceramic, heart-shaped, box that I bought at the dollar store years ago but didn't like the color of it. I decided to decoupage over the design using blue and white printed napkins. It gave new life to the box, and I was pleased with the results.


Approximate Time: About 1 hour


  • white paint primer
  • printed napkins
  • Mod Podge
  • small paint brush


  1. Clean your glass or ceramic item using alcohol to remove any grease or residue.
  2. Begin by pulling apart the napkins so that you have a single-ply with the printed design.
  3. Tear or cut the printed napkin into small one-inch pieces.
  4. Using a small paint brush, brush some Mod Podge (decoupage medium) onto the ceramic dish and place a piece of napkin over it. Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge over the piece, being careful not to tear it. Repeat until entire ceramic piece is covered.
  5. Allow to dry completely.
