Quick Fabric Light Switch Tutorial

Other people have done them, I have done them, everyone has done them! =)
I know this is not a new thing but I still think it is a fun and easy way to add a little color to any room.  Here is how you do it.

You will need: 
Fabric or paper of your choice
Mod Podge (either matte or gloss)
Paint brush
Light switch plate

Step 1: 
Trace your light switch plate.

Step 2: 
Cut out what you traced. It is better to cut outside the pencil lines than to cut inside. You can always trim off the excess.

Step 3: 
Place your fabric over your light switch and Mod Podge over the fabric. The Mod Podge will push through the fabric to make it stick or will dampen your paper to make it stick. 

If you prefer to apply the Mod Podge to the light switch and then apply your fabric, that is fine too. I prefer the outside so that I can wipe off smudge marks. 

Step 4:
Once dry, you can trim off the edges and install it to your wall.
Now you have a little splash of color in your room!
