I looooove covering these little things with paper. I want to cover every single switch plate in our house......do you know how many there are in one house?? I think we have about 19 (that's counting only the light switches and not the outlets). Some of these I just brought with us when we moved.....
This is where I painted directly onto the plate.
And this one was covered by paper and then painted.
These are all covered with paper. The bottom left is decoupaged- the others are just wrapped and taped on the back.
Maybe I will make it a goal to do one a week until our whole house has covered switch plates - they only take about 15 minutes to do. Will there come a time when every single surface of our house is covered in color and pattern? (I hope so :) :)
Here's a post about mod podging fabric onto a switch plate
Then there's Martha's instructions for covering switch plates
Family Fun's got some good info and a video
