DIY Gift Ideas – A great method to Transfer Pictures to Wood using Waxed Paper

DIY Transfer Pictures to Wood using Waxed Paper

Transferring Pictures to Wood has interested me for some time now. I’ve seen several methods and tried one. Although I got excited about it at first, I found it was too involved and it turned me off to the idea. It involved taking a photo, having it printed and then photocopied then wetting the photocopy on top of a piece of wood. The last step was to rub the paper until just the photo remained on the wood. This method works, but you have to be careful not to rub too hard as to remove the photo, but hard enough to remove all the paper.

Fast-forward to today. While looking around in google images for ideas to build things with pallet wood, I stumbled upon this gem.

Karen, at theartofdoingstuff.com, posted an article on How to Print Pictures on Wood – Waxed Paper Transfer. She takes you step-by-step through a process that’s as simple and flexible as your mind can conjure.
