How to transfer an image to wood
Here is what you need to transfer an image or photo to wood.
- Piece of wood
- Laser copy of an image or photo
- Mod Podge
To create this DIY Wood wall art I used an 18 inch wood round I purchased at Home Depot for $6.50, white chalk paint and vinyl for the word Welcome.
There are 2 keys to transferring an image to wood. 1) you must use a laser printer to print or copy an image. 2) you must use Mod Podge.
Here’s how I made this pretty wood wall art. I started by painting an 18 inch wood round with white chalk paint and let it dry completely. Once it was dry I took a pretty succulent print and made a copy at my library on a color laser printer. It ran me $.50 and was totally worth the money to make this wall art. I brushed a layer of Mod Podge over the image then pressed it image side down onto the wood. Then I let it dry overnight. .
When the Mod Podge was dry, I used a sponge and water and slowly dissolve and wipe away the paper leaving the image behind. Voila! Beautiful wood wall art for $7!
To dress up this wood wall art I cut the word Welcome using my Silhouette and added it below the potted succulent. Then I hung it in my foyer to freshen up the space.
