Handmade Light Switch Cover

Happy handmade Holidays to you and your family!

Do you need a last minute gift? Try this super easy paper or fabric light switch cover craft!

Every time someone turns the light on they will think of you! Awe...

What you need:

Decorative wrapping paper, candy wrappers, magazine clippings or fabric. Whatever you think is cool!

Scissors or x-acto knife.

Sand paper to sand the light switch cover before you cover it!

Mod-Podge, boy do I love this stuff...

Sponge brush to apply Mod-Podge.
Glitter, of course!

Now what do I do?

Cut a piece of decorative paper or fabric to fit the light switch cover.

Make a small snip at each corner. This will make it easier to fold the paper or fabric over the cover.

Sand the plate, coat it with Mod-Podge, then line up your paper or fabric and press it on by overlapping the corners at the snip. Fold excess paper or fabric and Mod-Podge it!

While your switch cover is drying you can sprinkle a little glitter on it!

Get your craft on,
