Organization makes me happy and I adore me some labels and stickers. But typical label makers are as boring as you can get. What about a Cricut, you say? Yesssssss - I could watch that little box of amazingness work its magic all day long. But did I mention I'm also frugal? So when you need a cute label or sticker (out of any picture!) and have only a printer and some shipping tape to work with, you're in luck!You'll need:* Printer and paper* Clear shipping tape* Mug/glass/basin with water, enough to cover the size of your label* Scissors* Spoon or other hard implement
It is easy and precise method to transfer laser print to wood, glass or metal (both need to be painted with acrylic paint first) or fabric - like here. You need special chemistry for cars, gloves to protect your hands,cotton fabric, laser print - if you transfer sentences, need to be reversed like in mirror, scotch tape - or similar one, cotton cosmetic pad and old tea spoon. Ready to see the steps? :)

Recently I picked up an old solid oak dining table. I really liked the round shape and thought I could create a unique coffee table out of it - so I snatched up for $50. Woot Woot!I scrapped the base as it was just a pedestal and kind of nasty, and just saved the top for my project. At first, I was thinking I might sand it down, stain it, then apply the graphic. *** spoiler alert - I tried 3 different ways to transfer this image and this was most successful. If you are interested in my epic failures you can see them on my blog.
Here's a really cool image transfer technique on how to turn packing tape into great looking clear labels and stickers!
After I published this on my blog, I got lots of great questions such as " Can you use it for color images?" "Why is my sticker cloudy or not sticking?" I will share at the end some super helpful tips and tricks!
When I first saw this idea on Hometalk I knew it was something I had to try. I have done all kinds of different tie dye projects. It started in elementary school, the school had us bring in shirts and well the rest is history. LOL I have dyed towels as a gift to a friend who loved tie dye, I have made shirts for fun and once I even dyed a shirt to cover up a red stain. You know how it is a red something gets in the wash and ruins your favorite shirt. Pink dye to the rescue. This idea from Amanda https://www.hometalk.com/17790085/ice-dyed-linen-beach-picnic-blanket?r=2&device=desktop I have a ton of white fabric and I want to use it to reupholster a couch and possibly a matching chair. But... WHITE??? not with 5 cats and 2 dogs and a handicapped kid who regularly pees on my couch. Then I saw the ice dye idea and well inspiration struck.
When we replaced our dining room chairs with comfy upholstered ones, I knew that the white slipcover wouldn't last long in our home with messy kids and a dog. So I dyed the slipcovers shibori style to protect them and hide messes.

Check out the video if you'd like to see close ups of how the details came through.
Whether you are going to the beach, camping, or even to a baseball game this is the perfect project for you! When I was growing up, we kept this huge, ratty, thousand pound blanket in the trunk of the car for any occasion we might need to sit on the ground. I am not kidding!We finally let that blanket go after many years of being dragged around, but since then I have always been prepared with a beach towel or blanket of some sort! So when I saw this amazing towel/pillow/bag at the store, I knew I had to make my own!

We built a cedar deck 17 yrs ago. And as we get older the more we struggle with keeping it stained and looking nice. So finally after all these year we went maintenance free. But I had all this amazing cedar wood, like the steps... I thought perfect sized wood to make a wood sign saying. Free wood! All the same size, just perfect.Then I was at the Dollar Store and say these vinyl sayings for $1.00! I bought 6 of them knowing I would use them in the future...So project made!i took 2 step boards, painted on sides and fronts a brown outdoor paint, onlybisrd this as I liked the color and I had some at home, again free. I let that dry then, added a back brace to keep them together and simply added the vinyl lettering.Hope you enjoy...

Well, this is one time that I really should have taken a few pictures. Argh!! What I mean is that I should have been paying attention to the “before” instead of racing towards the “after” without capturing everything that happened in between. But, in short, my powder room bath light fixture...circa 1990s.... was beyond its prime.
