Let Your Light Shine (Matthew 5:16) DIY Wall Art


  1. Print out the “Let your light shine” pdf.  You need to print it out on a laser printer in order for this photo transfer method to work.  Cut out the image.

  2. Paint the photo transfer medium onto the image.  

  3. Place the image face side down onto the surface that you want to transfer the image to.  Smooth the image down as best as you can so that there are no air bubbles.  Allow this to dry for 24 hours.

  4. Use a sponge to wet the image.  

  5. Once the water has soaked into the paper a little use the sponge to start rubbing off the paper.  Be careful not to rub too hard or you could rub off the image.  Use a paper towel to gently wipe off the paper bits.

  6. Let it dry for a half an hour or so and you will see areas where there may still be paper left.  Wet it again.  Repeat the rubbing and drying process until you have gotten off the paper.  Again, be gentle so as not to rub off the image.

  7. Let the wall art dry completely.
