The safari look is always fun, especially in bold colors. It’s easy to incorporate these playful patterns into your decor. All you need is a few key supplies.

Items needed:

  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Cadmium Yellow
  • Americana Decou-Page (Glue-Sealer-Finish) 8oz - Americana Decou-Page Matte
  • Americana Decou-Page Papers - Safari Life
  • 3 Mason Jars
  • Wooden Tray
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Letter Stickers

I love the bright safari-themed patterns in these Decou-Page Papers. I’ve used regular tissue paper for decoupage projects in the past, with mixed results. The paper will rip easily, bunch up and be basically difficult to craft with. That’s why I love using the Decou-Page Papers so much. 

Decou-Page Papers:
- Come in vibrant colors and patternsResists tear during application
- Bleed Resistant
- Easily wraps around corners
- Can be used on wood, metal, glass, fabrics, terra cotta, ceramics, resin, and more

First cut one sheet of each pattern of the Decou-Page Paper into 2 inch strips

Brush Decou-Page on the back of a square and place on the mason jar. Continue until the jar is completely covered.

After all the jars are covered, apply another coat of Americana Decou-Page on top of the Decou-Page Paper.
