To (re)make this tissue holder, you will need:
A second hand tissue holder
Some spray paint (I used Krylon’s Pebble)
A French Label graphic printed on regular printer paper (Here is the French Graphic Label)
Mod Podge (I prefer Outdoor Formula)
A brush to apply Mod Podge
Mod Podge smoothing brush (optional)
I started with this metal tissue holder. Of course, you may have one that just needs a little update, and so you could totally just do this project with one you already have. I picked mine up at Goodwill for 99 cents.
First, give the cover 3-4 light coats of spray paint, until it is all covered well. Remember, several light coats work much better than one thick coat. Next, print out the graphic and cut it out (right along the lines) with scissors.
Then, flip over the label and give it a thin, solid coat of Mod Podge on the back of the graphic before flipping it over to adhere to the tissue holder.
You can use a smoothing brush if you have one, or gently smooth it out with your hands to get all the air bubbles out, working from the middle out. A brush makes this process much, much easier.
Last, you’ll want to coat the entire graphic on top with another coat of Mod Podge to seal the graphic in place.
Just let it dry and you’re finished! The tissue holder looks much better now, don’t you think?
