Add whimsy to a baby's room with a simple technique called decoupage. This process can be applied to any smooth painted or unpainted wooden surface. We've supplied animal templates and suggestions for paper patterns. Before beginning, practice on a piece of scrap wood. Once you're comfortable with the process and you've gathered your materials, you can easily complete a project in an afternoon -- perhaps during your child's nap. The animals shown here were made by simply attaching paper cutouts to furniture with coats of glue. Our animal templates and step-by-step instructions will help you get started.
