Printed Decal Labels

This DIY is so fun and easy to make. You can use these labels in pretty much any way you wish! I used mine on a recycled jar to create a super cute container for some of my makeup products. These stickers could be used on anything from plastic bins to your bathroom mirror. The possibilities are endless!

What You’ll Need:

  • Design of choice (I found this image that said “Love never ends {1 Corinthians 13:8}” online and printed it out)
  • Jar or container of choice (I used a recycled salsa jar)
  • Packing Tape
  • Bowl of warm water
  • Dish scrubber

Instructions:

  • Use google or another source to find a design that you like
  • Print it out
  • Cover the top of your design with one layer of packing tape
  • Cut the design out to the size you want your label to be
  • Fill a bowl with warm water and allow the design to soak in the water for 5-10 minutes
  • Remove from bowl
  • Use a dish scrubber to remove all of the paper off the back of the tape (the design will have transferred onto the tape)
  • Once all of the paper is removed, allow the tape to dry
  • That’s all! You now have a label that you can use on whatever you wish!

This tray is really easy to make and adds a sophisticated touch to your bedroom, vanity, or bathroom counter. You can use it like I did to keep lotions and perfumes organized, as a place to display candles and decorations, or even as a designated spot to toss your keys and wallet so you don’t lose them.

What You’ll Need:

  • A cheap tray (I got mine from the dollar store. Gotta love the dollar store)
  • Design of choice (I went with this rosegold geometric pattern I found online)
  • White school glue
  • Water
  • A small bowl
  • A paintbrush

Instructions:

  • Find a design you like online and print it out
  • Measure the design to fit in the bottom of your tray and cut it out
  • Mix 1 teaspoon of water with 2 teaspoons of school glue until a watery glue substance is formed
  • Use the paintbrush to coat the bottom of your tray evenly with the glue mixture
  • Lay your design on top of the glue
  • Cover the top of your design evenly with more glue mixture to give it a waterproof surface
  • Allow the glue to fully dry
  • And that’s all!
