How to Put Photos on Wood

Well, it feels like forever that I've posted anything on my blog...I can't believe summer is coming to an end. I am just finishing up my latest project, Photos on wood. I had no idea that it would come out in color but to my surprise it did! I found this idea on pinterest but finally decided to do some. Check out the Craft Inspirations and DIY! Make sure you use regular paper (not photo paper) and use a laser printer (not an inkjet printer,) it's a common question I'm getting.

Yucky Ceiling Fan

So, as you can see, my ceiling fans REALLY needed to be cleaned...YUCK!!! I have one of those special bristled brushes made for fan blades but it just makes the dust go EVERYWHERE. I saw on pinterest that you can use a pillow case but I also sprayed some dusting spray so that it would really look good and so that the dust would cling onto the pillowcase. I was amazed how cleaned it looked...I did the other fans in the house immediately! 
I used an old flannel pillowcase I haven't used in years which worked perfect for this job. I sprayed the inside with Pledge and then I got up onto of my bed and placed the fan blade inside like it was a sock. I kind of was rubbing the p.c. while it was on so that I can get the under side good and around the brackets. Slowly pull off and Ta Da!!! Minimal dust fell down...YAY! I went ahead and washed my linens afterwards just to make sure...sans pillow case of course...haha.
