Hear are my DIY pallet picture frames and I will show you step by step how to do this at Home on the kitchen bench.
Purchase some Mod Podge photo transfer from your local crafts shop, and also matte Finish photo varnish to protect the image.
FIRST I printed my images from a laser inkjet printer onto normal white A4 paper. Making sure the image is switched to mirror
Then I made my pallet picture frame but you can just use any types of wood.
I then used a foam brush to apply the mod podge onto the face of the image and then pasted it onto the frame, gently rubbing all corners and Center.
Wait 24 hours, apply a wet/damp cloth to paper like a kids tattoo on the arm and once i can see the image appear I gently use my thumb in a rotation technique to peel away the paper to reveal the image.
Taking my time, I have peeled away all the paper. I am left with a layer of white fog like appears which is a pain because it’s sometimes hard to remove without tearing up the image.
Once I give it a few wipes from a cloth I apply the matt finish Varnish. And the finish is what you see. I’m basically glueing the image from the paper and then removing the paper from the back of it.
I then find different ways to give the frame a rustic look with stains, burning, and also giving the edges of the image light sand for that rustic look.
