I wanted to create a custom centerpiece for an upcoming party I was having. I didn't want to spend a lot of money but I wanted to make it very personal to our family. I decided to add black & white photographs to inexpensive wooden boxes. Let me show you how easy it was!

Items needed:

  • Americana Decou-Page (Glue-Sealer-Finish) 8oz - Americana Decou-Page Paper
  • Printed out pictures (about 5-7 of them)
  • Gray or Black paint
  • Wooden box
  • Paint brush
  • Water basin


I started out by painting the inside of my box a deep gray. (Paint it any color you want!).

While that was drying, I printed out pictures from my computer to use on the box:

Then, I traced on the pictures where to cut them:

And cut them out. I then used the decoupage to adhere them. I put a thin layer on the box and stuck them on. Gently smooth out and wrinkles and bubbles. I overlapped pictures and had them turn corners all the way around the box. (You may want to plan this out before you start attaching them.)

Once I had all the pictures on, I gave it a very light coat of decoupage on top of the pictures. Be very careful as you do this. The ink from your pictures will run a little and change colors a tiny bit, but that gives it a nice look. Just be careful not to do too much decoupage or you will have a mess. Just a thin layer is all you need.

Let it dry and then put it to good use!
