The first thing you’ll need to do is drill holes into your wood circles. If you’re linking together more than one disc, plan your holes accordingly. You want the holes as close to the edge as you can get, without getting so close that you split your wood. Practice makes perfect in this case. Mark with a pencil, and then drill. If you’re drilling holes in both the top, and bottom edge, so you can link together discs, make sure your holes are lined up with each other.
Lay your discs onto the paper that you want to use for decoupage, and trace around the circles with your pencil. Cut the circles out. Trim off a thin edge around each paper circle for a slightly easier fit, if desired.
Brush some Mod Podge onto the top of each disc.
Lay your paper carefully over the wet Mod Podge, and use your fingers to smooth out any bubbles. Brush another layer of Mod Podge over the top of your paper. Let dry. If you want to help waterproof your earrings, give them a spray of clear coat on both sides of the discs. Letting them dry in between coats.
Use a nail, or toothpick to poke through the paper to open up the hole in the wood disc.
