Magic Transfers on Planters!

These pots look adorable and the transfer design is so easy to do!

So sorry for these old photos! 

First I painted my pots with a coat of chalky paint. 

I began by using Mod Podge on a printed design from a computer. 

It is best to use a design from a Laser Printer in reverse. 

First, coat the pot with Mod Podge and lay your reversed image onto the pot. 

I let the paper dry then rewet the paper and gently rubbed off the paper until the design stayed on the pots. 

When all the paper was removed, I sprayed the pots with a spray sealer to seal the design.

And my pots were free from the trash after someone's garage sale.
