outlets

Outlets are ugly...but obviously a necessity.  unless your Amish.  Im not amish.

But then I have been noticing a lot of easy updated covers on pinterest using fabric or scrapbook paper.
So I decided to give it a shot.

my supplies- modge podge, elmers spray adhesive, and a cute toddler.



youll also need fabric scissors, and an exacto knife.  oh yeah and outlet or switch covers.

the rest is common sense.  spray the fabric onto the cover- cut around it, and fold it over.


use the exacto knif to cut slits in the middle and pull them through.








Then mod podge the heck out of it.  its goes on cloudy, but dries clear.



make sure to really get the back good with mod podge so everything stays put.


they are ugly from behind, but who isnt?

 And there you go.  un-ugly outlet covers.

got a little carried away painting here.
