How to make personalized switch plates

You use the light switches in your home every day, but you probably don’t ever notice the switch plates. Granted, most switch plates are easy to ignore, given that they’re usually white or beige plastic. Decorative options are available made from wood, metal or stone. But you can add even more pizazz to your décor by personalizing switch plates with your own photographs and designs. You might feature pictures of your family or pets, show off the logo of your favorite sports team, or choose a design that matches the decorating scheme of the room. Once you realize how easy they are to customize, you just might make the big switcheroo for all of your light switches.

  • Plastic switch plate
  • Image printed on laser copy paper
  • Mod Podge decoupage glue/sealer
  • Foam brush
  • Bowl of water
