Description - Decoupage Your Home by Fransie Snyman

One of the most popular crafts to re-emerge recently, decoupage is ideal to decorate just about anything, from small household items to large pieces of furniture. Discover its delights with this start-to-finish guide packed with technique know-how and stylish projects.

Starting with tools and materials, preparation of bases and blanks, choosing napkins, paper and fabric, cutting techniques and finding the perfect product for the effect you want to achieve, the book contains more than 50 appealing projects with clear step by step instructions and photographs.


Following the trend to upcycle, decoupage is a fun and easy way to transform just about anything as it works on a wide range of surfaces, from glass and plastic to fabric and wood. In its simplest form, it involves gluing paper onto everyday objects to embellish them, but materials and ideas from many other crafts can be incorporated. Combining traditional and new techniques with the huge variety of specialist products available today, there is no limit to what you can achieve.

Suitable for beginners, this lavishly illustrated book will also inspire experienced crafters. The projects range from brooches, boxes and tins to bigger undertakings such as chairs, a headboard and a photo wall. The text is packed with useful information, helpful hints and sound advice.

Author Biography - Fransie Snyman

Multi-crafter Fransie Snyman is a science teacher who escapes to her crafts whenever her busy schedule allows. She loves paper and has always made her own greeting cards. Dabbling in many other crafts, including pewter, scrapbooking, glass painting, encaustic art and, most recently, stained glass, she belongs to several craft groups and is a popular teacher and demonstrator at expos and craft events. She has written many books on various crafts, several of which have appeared in international editions. Having dipped into decoupage techniques in her books on cardmaking and frames, and the fabulous range of new product available, inspired her to do a book on decoupage as the focal technique.
