Summer Camp Crafts with our Friends: Beer Label Letters Decoupage

We’ve been busy having fun with some summer camp-inspired crafts at The Bruery, but we want to see what you’ve been creating, too. Contribute your own craft project to The Bruery Blog by entering our Summer Camp Crafting Blog Off. Our first contributor, Kim Parsons, gussied up her walls with some super giant beer label art.

I needed some beer art to go on the walls of a friend’s restaurant & brewery. So I came up with this Beer Label Letters Decoupage project.

Supplies needed:
A collection of beer labels
Cardboard, wood, or metal letter shapes
X-acto knife
clear glue
decoupage glue
Optional: clear coat

1. Get beer labels.

2. Place them on your desired object you wish to cover. I’ve used items shaped from cardboard, wood, and metal.

3. Glue down labels with a clear glue. Some labels are pre-glued so it can get sticky with all the different glues. Try to keep labels as flat as possible to avoid tearing and bubbling.

4. Use an X-acto knife to trim edges and make cuts around corners so labels will lay flat.

5. Spray with a clear coat, if desired.

While working on this project I enjoyed 10 Barrel‘s Swill!!!
