I agree with Sebbie and Cynthia about drilling a hole to insert the dowel my glue of choice is E6000
Hi Wendy, I love your little elephant! I think it's bamboo wood (looks like cork gave it away) plus the skewer is wood too, so then I would use wood glue! I would probably drill a small hole and stick it in that way with wood glue but if you don't want to do that, try this instead, rough up a spot where you want to put the skewer and the end of the skewer too! Add a few drops of wood glue to both spots wait about 30 seconds or so before you stick the skewer on, just a little bit gummy. You will also need to set up something where you can keep the skewer straight while it drys (total cure). Try something like a cardboard tube over the skewer with a clothespin to hold it in place while it drys. You can wipe up any excess glue with a cloth and water before it drys! I like titebond wood glue or you can use some wood putty the same way! We would love to see the finished product!
Hi Wendy, oh I see now but it looks like a sheet of tissue paper, not cut outs. Sorry to be such a "purist" but I do decoupage and it is such a precise art that to read that things are decoupaged when they are just paper pasted down seems to demean what I and many other decoupers do! The mirror on this dressing table has tissue paper glued around it but I would never call it decoupage.
You are very welcome!
Love the elephant. Is it a done deal now?
