How to transfer a Photo to Wood!

Love these DIY ideas as much as we do? Stay up to date on our latest findings by liking our facebook page at Home and Heart DIY Facebook!

I’ve been looking to do something like this with our wedding pictures, oh,  going on six years now (don’t judge). In looking at how much it costs to get it done professionally, I always have second thoughts, thinking that I’ll wait to find something more affordable. Well that has yet to happen – until today! This is an extremely affordable alternative to paying someone to do it for you.

You’ll need:

  • a photo printed on card stock
  • sandpaper
  • a block of wood
  • Mod Podge
  • eyelet hooks (spray painted black if desired)
  • a piece of pretty ribbon

DIY Bejeweled Collar

Love these DIY ideas as much as we do? Stay up to date on our latest findings by liking our facebook page at Home and Heart DIY Facebook!

The collar is something that is being played up more and more – especially for the fast approaching fall season. There are even collar necklaces out there – which I happen to love! This DIY takes an old unused thing (CD’s!) and dresses up a shirt to look like new!

Take some old CD’s, and soak them in water for 10-15 minutes. Take them out of the water and with a pair of scissors, begin to cut your CD into pieces, as big or as small as you’d like. As you cut, you’ll notice that the CD will start to separate, there will be a holographic layer and clear layer, throw the clear layer away and only use the holographic pieces. Arrange the pieces first on the collar before glueing. Then using a super glue, or embellishing glue, apply glue to the bottom side of piece, place it on the collar and press firmly. Do this until the collar is covered.

This is one my favorite DIY’s we posted on this blog so far! I love when you can add a nostalgic, sentimental touch to DIY’s.

Incorporating maps into decor is such a lovely look. Imagine how cool this will look when it’s lit up! Be sure to pick a map of someplace that means something. I would probably pick a map of Oregon, or maybe Venice. Those two place are some of my favorites in the world!
