This website turns your photo into a decal. You put the Modge Podge on the face of the photo, place the photo face down on the glass, and peel the photo off.

You need clear packing tape.

You need a color print of the photo, and it must fit the width of the packing tape.


You put the photo, color side down, on the sticky part of the packing tape.

Make sure that the paper is completely on the tape, by running over it with your fingers.

Use a wet cloth to GENTLY wipe off the paper from the tape.

There will be an image left on the packing tape.

You can glue this or modge podge this onto the glass.

I am working on some spice jars, and they are glass. I have printed out some labels I have designed and was wondering if mod podge will work for this, so when they need washing I can wash the jars. If so how do you recommend that I do this? Do I just put it over the label or do I need to put some mod podge on the jar first then put the sticker on and then another coat over the top of the label?
