Hello friends!

Today I’m sharing a brand new (to me) product. And one I’m super excited about!

Fusion Decoupage and Transfer Gel <<< you can find it in my shop too.

If you remember last week I shared these graphics that I created for you all for Christmas. Well, I did a little thrift shopping and picked up a few things last week.
I thought it might be fun to makeover one or two of them with these graphics.

Missed that post? Check it out here >>> Christmas Printables

So that’s what I did!

But first! Have you entered this month’s giveaway?? You’ve got a few more days so hop on over and enter to win the goodies! :) Enter >>> here.

Christmas Verse Decor

This is how it started out.
Totally cute as-is but I wanted to do something different.

I decided to use this graphic…

I just love this one and thought it’d be perfect for this wood hanging.

I lightly sanded and then painted it with white spray paint.

Once the spray paint was dry, I printed out the graphic in reverse and applied a moderate coat of the transfer gel.

Then I simply attached the paper to the board and pressed firmly to attach.
You want to make sure there are no air bubbles so it’s good to rub it with a credit card or something similar.

Once that is done, let it sit overnight to dry well.

The next day, once fully dry, I used a wet sponge to wipe over the paper to begin to remove it.

Pull and rub the paper until it’s all gone, leaving the image behind like magic.

So fun!

This worked really well with my inkjet printer. However, I have heard it’s best to use a laser printer.
I will tell you, I was also working on another one that I used a different paint underneath.
I’m not sure if I didn’t let that paint dry well enough OR if it was because it was inkjet, but I had a bit of a fail.
I will share that one soon…and the fix.

This one, however, turned out great!

I have done a bit of decorating too. Just last night actually.
AND I’m about done!!
I am going a bit more simple this year, one tree only. (I usually do three)

I still have the front porch to decorate and the tree but the rest of the house is done. Yippee.

I went ahead and did it because my son comes home from school this week for Thanksgiving break and my daughter and fiance are staying overnight on Thanksgiving too. So I wanted it all decorated for them when they get here. :)

How about you? Have you decorated already?

PIN it to save it!

I  hope you have a blessed week and a blessed Thanksgiving too!



  1. Beautiful Nancy!! I love the result you got with the Fusion Transfer Gel!!
    Go you getting your Christmas decorating done! I haven’t started. lol
    I wish you and your family a Blessed Thanksgiving!

    1. Thank you, Christina! I am about done except for decorating the tree. Was waiting on my son to come home from college so he can help. AND I even managed to wrap all gifts last night!! What?! I am early this year!! lol xo

    1. I used regular printer paper. You can use several programs to reverse images like Microsoft Word, Picmonkey, etc. I think most printers allow to reverse too. :)

      1. how do you transfer image to whatever material you are using (in this case, the wood)? Like I said, new at this process ;)

        1. That is where the Transfer Gel comes into play here. You print it out, apply the gel and then apply the paper, let it dry and then rub the paper away. The image stays behind. I hope that makes sense! I have a new post coming out tomorrow with another one. Keep an eye out for it. :)

  2. This is so beautiful. I love it and the scripture is perfect for this project. I just want to know where did you get those bells on the mantle? They are fantastic. I am a bit of a grinch at Christmas and don’t always decorate, but my daughter and her family are coming this year and so will begin my decorations after Thanksgiving.

    1. Thank you, Kris! I believe I got those from Michael’s a few years back. Bet you might be able to find some on Amazon! xo

  3. Beautiful!! I love the scripture which is so perfect for Christmas! Your transformations are always first class and sooo artistic! I can’t wait to try the transfer gel.
    Thank you for sharing!

  4. This is such a sweet verse and the sign is lovely. I’m downloading and try to transfer it to a board I’ve been saving; I have some Fusion tx gel left over! So this will be cost free! Have a lovely Thanksgiving!

  5. I love your Christmas transfers. I only have a black and white printer now so I’d have to have them printed at a store. Your mantle looks so pretty.

  6. Sooooo pretty!!! I don’t know how to print in reverse..???? I have an iMac with an Epson printer.
    With this printer I can barely print forward!!! H~E~L~P!!!!!

    1. Thank you, Addie! You can use a program like Word, or similar to reverse the image first. Save it and then print it. :) xo

  7. Oh that is so cool…love it. 😍 Enjoy your Thanksgiving with your family. So nice to have your family home for the Holidays. 💓.

  8. Love this project! Just wondering, do you use regular printer paper or do you have to use special paper? I’m guessing regular paper as you suggested this could be printed at Office Max. Happy Thanksgiving!
