How to Make Glass Clings With Packing Tape

Maybe you’ve heard of this packing tape transfer method before but I just found out about it not too long ago and couldn’t wait to try it out. It’s so easy to do but you will need an image printed on a laser printer. So, look around your home and find a glass jar, a glass votive, a vase or even ceramic cups like I did. Get your packing tape and prepare to be amazed!! Found something? Great! Let’s go.

Find your image. How do you want to customize your item? Do you want to create seasonal or holiday decor? do you want to personalize it with someone’s name? or give it a vintage touch? Well, depending on what you want to do, you will either search for clip art on the internet or create it yourself.
I wanted to give my espresso cups a nice vintage touch and this graphic from the Graphics Fairy was perfect!

A few ideas!
The beauty of this is that you can simply remove them once you get bored and start over.

Just think of the possibilities. You can buy a few glass votives and customize them for each season or holiday! Imagine some cute valentines clip art for valentines, fall sayings for fall, or put someone’s name on and gift them!

    Now that's one more creative idea I need to try! So cool. I wonder if you could make it more permanent by spraying it with an acrylic finish?
