- Plastic switch plate cover
- X-Acto knife or similar blade
- Mod Podge or similar craft glue
- Small foam brush
1. Place your switch plate face-up on a small (roughly 7×7) cut of wallpaper. Trace the switch plate and, using your ruler, add a ~1 inch margin around the entire plate. Draw two perpendicular lines from the plate’s corners to the edge of the margin, indicating the four corners of the template.
2. Using scissors or a craft blade, cut out the template and corners. The overall template should look like an oversized “plus sign.”
3. Apply a generous layer of craft glue to the reverse side of the wallpaper template.
4. Place the switch plate face-down onto the glue-covered wallpaper.
5. Carefully fold each side of the template over onto the rear of the switch plate, making sure to pull the paper taut before affixing permanently.
6. Cover the entire outward-facing surface with a thin, even coat of craft glue.
7. After allowing your project to dry fully, cut out the switch and screw holes with a craft blade.
8. Attach to the light switch of your choice, stand back, and admire your work!
