How to Decoupage a Maché Stags Head

Create the perfect modern Christmas decoration by selecting complementary decoupage papers and applying them to a Maché Stags Head. There are a huge range of seasonal and non-seasonal papers available online and in store at Hobbycraft!

You Will Need Craft Essentials How to Make

1. Choose complimentary decoupage papers. To create a modern design, select one plain colour for the main head of the stag, and one busier pattern for the antlers.

2. Prepare the decoupage paper by ripping it up into small pieces, about 1/2 x 1/2 inch

3. One by one, plaster the plainer coloured decoupage paper onto the head of the stag using the Decopatch glue or clear glue and a paintbrush. 

Top tip! Keep the amount of glue you paint on to a minimum to avoid bubbles or air pockets underneath the paper

4. Once the head is covered, do the same with the patterned paper on the antlers.

Top tip! Rip the paper up smaller for more intricate parts
