Wall Art is the reflection of the homeowner’s personality. Not only it functions as a decoration but also it provides character and beauty to the overall look of your home. I have always wanted to transfer photo to wood and make a nice wall art for our living room.
Ever since we moved, we have not put many wall art around the house. I have to admit, this is one of those aspects that I most struggle with. I’m torn between making our rooms look magazine worthy or making it more personal by putting more of our pictures around the house.
But our vacation in Poconos was something that all of us really enjoyed. This vacation was such a happy and memorable event that all of us will cherish. So I decided to finally use the photo transfer technique and make a little keepsake for our family.
Here is a short video tutorial on how to transfer photo to wood with a caption using vinyl letters. You can also check the tutorial below.

HOW TO TRANSFER PHOTO TO WOOD TUTORIAL
MATERIALS (Click to Buy)
- Prepare your photo. Make sure it is printed in its mirror image. This only works with photos that are printed with LASER PRINTER.
- Apply Liquitex evenly on the wood. Make sure you have enough gloss on the wood. The wood absorbs some of the gloss so it’s best to put more.
- Lay your photo on the wood facing down. If you have a bigger picture like mine, there is a big chance that it will have bubbles in it.
- Use your brayer to flatten the bubbles.
- Leave for 24 hours
- After 24 hours, get a damp cloth to scrape the paper off from the wood. You have to do it lightly. This process takes awhile and requires a lot of patience.
- You can have the option to add some other details. Mine included a caption: BElieve THEre is GOOD in the World. I used my Silhouette Cameo (my favorite!) to make my vinyl letters precise.
