3 Photo Transfer Gifts for Grandparents

by Lynn Lilly, Aug 10 2020

After having a baby, photo gifts have become my go-to for family, especially for my daughter's grandparents! Whether it's Grandparent's Day, a birthday, or, a holiday I love trying to put a unique twist on photo gifts. Now that baby number 2 is on the way there are definitely more photo gifts on the way.  Rust-Oleum Photo Transfer allows you to transfer photos and images on glass, canvas, wood, fabric, and more! I was excited to create three gifts that I know Lily's grandparents are going to love!

Tips to Prepping Photos and Images:

  • Make sure all images are mirrored. They need to appear backward. 
  • All images must be printed or copied on a laser ink printer. 


  1. Apply Photo Transfer to the image/photo paper with a foam brush. Make sure to cover the entire image.    
  2. Place the image/photo paper face down on the project surface. 
  3. Use your fingers to smooth out air bubbles. 
  4. Let the project sit for 12 hours. 
  5. After 12 hours wet your fingers in a bowl of water and rub in a circular motion over the image until the paper starts to ball away and reveal the transferred image.  Continue to do this until you have revealed the entire image.   
  6. Once the image is revealed paint a top coat of the Photo Transfer over it to protect the project. Let it completely dry before displaying or gifting!
