Altered Wooden Dominoes

Need some last minute ornaments? Some cute gift tags?

I found these great 1"X 2" wooden dominoes in the $1 spot at Target recently. (you can also find similar size wooden items at most craft stores) With some Wrapped Wishes paper scraps, Ribbon Elements and Clearly Petite Stamps you can easily make a dozen or so in very short time.

Here are some simple instructions to make your own:
  • Sand and cover each Domino face with a light layer of decoupage medium, cover with a pattern paper scrap and brush medium over the paper to seal. (set aside to dry while assembling the next one.)

  • When dry, trim away excess paper from sides of domino. Sand if you like, and ink edges. (*Note that mine have been double inked in contrasting colors.)

  • Using an ink pad suitable for smooth surfaces; ink and stamp using Happy Holidays Clearly Petite Sentiment Stamps

  • Mask off the sentiment using a Post-It (this part is optional, Learn how to mask HERE) and stamp the snowflakes and Dainty Swirl using Clearly Petite Image Stamps

  • At this point you can varnish or apply a final coat of decoupage medium to seal the piece. (* again this is optional, if you heat set your ink it should be fine.)

  • apply liquid glue to edge of domino and roll edge in fine glitter.

  • Embellish front with rhinestones, sequins or glitter glue of your choice.

  • Attach a ribbon loop to back using a strong dry adhesive.


Have a Happy Holiday!
