Update - French Planters with Graphic Flare

I decorated two really cute planters this morning.


A perfect touch for a French Café!

 
Now I need to add some French herbs.... like basil, sage and thyme.

Update:
(It's a little early in the season. All I could find was dill and mint.)


The dill will be perfect for salmon, pasta and cucumbers salads. I think I'll add it to our weekend morning omelets. The mint I can add to the cucumber salad, rice dishes and cold drinks.


Happy Crafting!

What transfer technique did you use?? The graphics are so vivid!!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

These look great, Dee! Love the images you used. They'd be wonderful at a party or BBQ holding stuff, too!

I love it...Maybe we should barter water slide decals for a heat transfer tool! What are we going to do when graphics go out of style??? I can't think about it!

to cute!
so nice of you to answer my question via an email. and hanks for letting me know you did more projects.

Silly me, I was thinking I would paint the wood then do it.
hmm, heat, paint.....maybe not a good mix. =)
But, on the other hand, I may be on to some whole new look!!

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Your wooden boxes are so cute so I've been going through your previous posts to read about that transfer tool. It is amazing! I think I am going to order one because I find old boxes at an auction all the time!

Dee,
I have a question about the wood burning tool. Is it the heat that makes the graphic transfer the ink? Where do you get your prints done? I have tried Staples and Kinko's and although they are laser printers, the ink just wouldn't budge. I even used an iron, but that didn't help either.
Love your work.

This time of year it feel good to get your hands in the dirt. Herbs are a good way to start and your boxes make them very french like.

Hi Dee,

I love your idea! I bought a transfer tool and have bee playing with it. I think I might be doing something wrong or missing a step. The paper keeps sticking, I have tried many different temps thinking that may be the problem. I would greatly appreciate your help trouble shooting.
