Fun Rub-On Transfer Ideas


 Rub-on transfers are most commonly used for scrap-booking,  They are easy  to apply and can adhere to most surfaces.

I was looking for a few inexpensive ways to brighten up my home for Spring so I decided to transfer my images onto a couple of white planters I had on hand.


Plant flowers from Home Depot and use them indoors as houseplants.  They are an inexpensive way to add flowers to a room.

Once I get started no untouched surface is safe!  I added a little "love" to our glass, hot chocolate container, just because!

Happy Spring!

  8. Saw you at Everything But the Kitchen Sink.

    I had not even THOUGHT of using rub ons for dishes like that! Everyone these days seems to use cut outs of vinyl from a cricut or silhouette. Neither of which I own. But rub ons, that I can do!

  14. That's such a great idea, Brandi! I especially like them on your glass jar. They must be good quality to stick so well to the glass.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend, sweetiepie.
