1. Start by preparing the natural glue. For this, mix a glass of cornstarch and a glass of cold water, being careful not to have lumps. Heat a glass of water in a saucepan, then add the cornstarch mixture while stirring constantly. Add a tablespoon of powdered sugar and a little water if necessary. Remove the mixture from the heat when it becomes fluid, then let it sit at room temperature. The glue can be kept cool for several days.

2. Put the dimensions of the door on the piece of fabric, leaving a margin of three centimeters on all sides. With a brush, put glue on the door, then glue the piece of fabric.

3. Use a cutter or scissors to make the cutouts at the door handle and hinges. Put enough glue on the cutouts so that the fabric stays in place.

In the end

With this new decor, you set the tone as soon as you enter the room! If you want to change the fabric again or just get back to the original color, just wipe it off after removing the fabric and the door will look like new.
