Decoupaging can be done in several ways, but did you know that you could decoupage with Saran Wrap? It’s my new favorite technique!
Being able to decoupage material onto a project can completely transform it. Mod podge seems to be the most common way to decoupage but sometimes it can be pretty messy.
Here is how you can decoupage with just a couple items in your kitchen and get the same amazing results!
Laying your parchment paper down first, place your project piece on top, in this case, that is my wooden pumpkin.
Cover your project piece with Saran Wrap making sure that it is completely flat. Any creases or folds will show on the final project.
Now you want to put your napkin that you’ve separated on top of the saran wrap.
Lastly, cover your layers with parchment paper to project it.
Using your iron on the cotton setting, iron on top of the parchment paper. The Saran Wrap is going to melt and adhere the napkin to the project piece. It only takes about 20 seconds so it’s not a long process.
After you’ve adhered the napkin to your project, sand off the excess napkin and fix any details needed.
My favorite part about decoupaging with Saran Wrap is that there is hardly any mess. I’m a messy creative at heart, but sometimes I appreciate not having to clean up all the “stuff”.

I have a heat press, could I use that? I would put parchment paper over and under.
I don’t see why you couldn’t. You just don’t need the heat up super high.
Can you still seal napkin without causing wrinkles using poly acrylic ?
Yes! But I would use a spray sealer
Yes! Just a light coat thoigh
That looks super easy Beth!! My luck I’d melt the Saran Wrap to my iron ????????????
LOL – that’s why you use the parchment paper! I would do that too!
So you do not need to use Mod Podge?
NOPE! Not at all! It’s amazing!

i love your easy tutorial. i’m just learning. this is definitely something i can do with my students who are adults with disabilities. one question though: what grit of sandpaper did you use to finalize your project?
I typically use 120 grit.
[…] can use the traditional mod podge method or use this saran wrap or dry mod podge method, to attach your napkins to your garden […]
