Wood Block Photo Transfer

Well I’ve had some great crafting ideas but this one is my favorite. Ask yourself what is the best way to show off some pictures at work if you are a guy? I don’t know many guys with photos at their desks but I ask you this, what if said photo was on a block of wood. SO MUCH MORE MANLY!! 🙂 I love this project because its great for the vintage look as well

So I take a photo copy of a the picture, put a coat of gel medium on the wood.

Place the photo on the block of wood.

Rub all bubbles out of the sheet.

Let it dry over night.

Get damp with water and rub off the paper.

After all the paper is off cover with a bit of mod podge


Let dry than display some sweet vintage looking and MANly wood photos around the house and at work

Suggestions: choose a photo with high contrast, don’t worry about the photo centering, scratch at the edges when wet to add a fun aged look.

Happy Crafting!
