using rub-ons in home decor

Last week, I was on the My Mind's Eye blog {I'm a Design Team member} sharing my take on their Rub On Challenge. I decided to create some darling home decor and now that I've tried it, I just want to go around and add a rub-on to anything and everything in our home.

Using Rub Ons in Home Decor |

And why stop at just plates? Because Victoria would notice right away that Isabella had something new, I knew that I had to find a way to spice up something in her room, too. If you have more than one kid, you'll know where I'm going with this. 

Sigh, keeping the peace, keeping the peace.

Before beginning your project, I suggest giving your plate or mirror or other object a quick swipe with some window cleaner and allowing it to dry before adhering your rub-ons.

  • I tested the rub-ons on the back of the plate first, just to see if it would work...and it did! I worked from above as the plates rested on my work table. 
  • I had little luck using this same technique on a curved glass vase, but I'm not giving up and will try again. I'll use smaller images, rather than the reallllly long string of hearts I originally tested with. 
  • The mirror, for some reason, was harder to do than the plates, which could have been because I was too lazy to pull it off the wall and was adhering the rub-on's at an odd angle while it was still hanging on the wall.
