A $5.00 and 5 minute project...My Favorite kind!

Are you all into fall decorating?? I love Fall however in Florida you don't really get too much of the various seasons. I have to live vicariously through photos of others. What's your favorite part of Fall? The leaves changing color? Pumpkins? Pumpkin Spice Latte's? Everyone has different reasons for why they love the season changes. For me, I LOVE the fall change in the leaves. They are just beautiful!

The newly released A1 Artist First Transfers have a perfect fall transfer: Fall Into Whimsy. This 8 page transfer features various designs with a heavy focus on sunflowers. Sunflowers are so versatile. Working for both Spring and Fall. This transfer set also features Fall colored leaves, pumpkins and baskets, mushrooms and birds. It's a really pretty design that's perfect for any craft.

I also love going to Target and shopping in the Bullseye Section at the front of the store. I can find so fun crafts to do. I picked up a $5.00 wooden kitchen riser and knew immediately I wanted to apply the larger design from the Fall into Whimsy transfer. Here, I am going to give you a quick and simple 3 step tutorial of how I made this cute Fall Themed Kitchen Riser.

Step 1:

I started by first cleaning the piece so it was completely dust free and had no oils on it. As this was brand new I knew there wouldn't be an kind of oil often used with a cutting board and right out of the package it was pretty dust free. Either way, I went ahead and gave it a quick wipe down with a baby wipe.

Step 2:

I then cut out the transfer I wanted to use. For this particular piece I used an entire sheet from the transfer set as it fit perfectly on the center of the circle. I always do a small test of where I want the transfer to lay down. Thankfully the transfers from A1 Artist First are pretty decent at releasing should you happen to place it wrong. I actually laid this one down without pushing it down and was able to pull it back up without any of the transfer adhering to it. I took the provided wooden stick and pressed down over the entire transfer. It stuck out over the side slightly so I pushed it down over the sides and pressed firmly until the design adhered. As no one would see the underside this worked perfectly to just roll it over. Once I was sure I ran over the whole clear piece I then started to slowly peel back the clear sheet. It's best to do this slowly and to ensure you aren't peeling it up without it completely sticking. If you find an area that didn't adhere all the way you can simply lay it back down and press some more. I have found the heat of your fingers or even a fingernail works great!

Step 3:

Once you've peeled back the entire clear sheet you are ready to clear coat the transfer. This ensures the transfer doesn't crack or peel back up. All transfers needs to be sealed whether you do it with wax or clear coat. I personally prefer clear coat as it doesn't have to be reapplied like wax does. I used Eye Love Hue Satin Mystic Shell.

And that's it! How simple and easy was that??
