Displaying photos in a creative way is always so exciting, and transferring a photo to wood really makes a unique keepsake.
- Laser printed photo, not reversed (printing a photo copy of a photo will automatically reverse it so make sure to change the setting)
- Wood block that is smooth— weathered, stained or raw
- Gel medium, matte
- Decopauge craft glue, matte
- Sponge brush
- Towel, damp
Step 1 Cover the wood with gel medium with a paintbrush. Place photo picture side down and smooth out all bubbles. Let dry 24 hours.
Step 2 Take damp towel and place over photo just enough to wet it. Once wet, gently rub with a towel to scrape the paper residue off the photo. Once all residue is gone, wipe lightly one last time with a clean damp cloth.
Step 3 Cover photo with decoupage craft glue using a sponge and let dry. Enjoy your keepsake!
