For the first version of these canisters you will need to
get some clear waterslide decal paper for your type of
printer. On your computer, lay out some graphics you want for your
canisters, and print them according to the paper directions. Next you’re going to need to seal them with a clear acrylic
of some kind. Do at least 3 light layers, letting the spray
dry between coats. Don’t be a dingus like me, though, and
set your camera way too close to the spray zone! You can buy canisters like this new, but I am cheap and got
mine at Goodwill. Some had these rubber seals, and those
were old and cracked. Others had silicone seals that seemed to still be in pretty
good shape. All the canisters got a good wash in the
dishwasher, after we put on the decals, these will be hand
wash only. I replaced the worn out seals with new ones I found on
Amazon. You may not need to do this step at all if your
canisters will be purely decorative. But replacing them is
super easy. Nice new seal! Now you will want to decide which canisters are going to get
which designs. Cut your design close, leaving just a small edge all the way
around. You will need to get a dish of some sort with water in it,
and put your cut out designs in the water. They will want to curl up, so you might have to gently push
them down into the water until the paper baking softens a
little more. Now we wait about 2 or 3 minutes and do a little waiting dance I can hear my kids cringing now! make sure your canister is nice and clean. Get your first decal out of the water and gently slide the backing one direction while you slide
the picture the other direction. This will create a little tab of the clear decal sticking
off on one end. Starting with that end, place your design on
the cannister and carefully pull the paper away to the
opposite side. The decal should slide fairly easily to get the placement
you want. Be gentle and watch for bubbles and wrinkles. Gently blot the design with a damp sponge or paper towel to
remove excess water, which I somehow didn’t film. For a better set of the design, we are going to bake this,
so we need to remove the seal. Baking is not necessary, it just makes the design a bit more
rugged. Some waterslide decals come with baking directions that you
should follow. Mine didn’t, so I had some trial and error. For these, you start with a cold oven, then place the
canister in and heat the oven to 315° Fahrenheit. Remove
them once the oven comes to full heat. Now the easier way! Wall decals! You just pick one you like that is the right size for you
canister, and stick it on! Be sure you push out as many bubbles as you can for a nicer
look. I had my professional bubble pusher help out. My canisters are just for decoration, and they will be
sitting on top of my cabinets. So I want to give them some
extra height. For this I will use E6000 and hot glue to stick on
candleholders from Dollar Tree. The E6000 is for longterm strong hold, and the hot glue is
just to hold it in place until the E6000 cures. It looks great,but If you plan to actually use your
canisters for storing things, you might want to skip this
part. The lids over-balance them to one side when open, and that
makes them fall over pretty easily when they are on the
candleholder. Here they are! … and here is what happens when you accidentally leave
them in the oven longer than you should! Oops!I still love
them, though! And if spooky isn’t you aesthetic, you can do this in other
styles, too! We are trying to go for “haunted farmhouse” in
our home, so here is a bit of the more farmhouse look. The
candleholder was just painted with chalk paint. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! I’ll link some of the
supplies I used below. be sure you like and subscribe!

  1. If you put a small glass rock on the ends of the decal while you are letting it soak, it will hold the ends down. Do you put some kind of finish or clear coat over the decal after you bake it? Where do you get the decal material? Great video.
