How to Transfer a Photo onto Wood to Make a Door Plaque

I had been wanting to try out the transferring of photos onto a  block of wood for a while ,and finally got around to giving it a go whilst making this unique personalised door hanger. image Materials:


Block of wood/plywood

Matte Gel Medium

Varnish/Mod Podge

 Scrabble Tiles

Strong glue

How to:

1. Transfer photo onto wood Firstly brush your piece of wood with a generous amount of matte gel.

image Place your photo face down onto the gelled side of the wood. image Leave to dry overnight. Carefully peel/rub off the back of the photo paper. image Hopefully your photo will now remain imprinted on the wood! It doesn’t have to be perfect and it actually creates a nice finish if its not perfect. Cover with varnish and leave to dry. photo on wood 2. Add name to personalise. Use your wooden scrabble tiles to write the name of the person whose door hanger it is to be. Then glue them together with a strong glue. image Finally, attach your name, using more glue, to the bottom of the wooden photo.  

Then your personalised door hanger is ready to hang. personalised photo door plaque
