DIY Photo on Wood

Transfer Photos on to Timber

Photo on Timber Main Image

Photographs play an important role in everyone’s life. They connect us to our past. They remind us of people, places, stories, and feelings. They can help us to know who we are, who we once were – and maybe even tell us who we can become. Photographs are a tangible link to the past, to time and moment now lost.

Thinking of a new way to display memorable photos at home? Forget picture frames and use the timber you have at home instead of a unique look!

Transferring a photo to a piece of wood takes around 20 minutes. What we like more about this idea is that you can customize the look any way you want it — your imagination is the limit! You can paint the timber any color you like and even use special effects and patterns!  And, of course, you can shape the wood to match the mood and content of your photo.
