To enhance the vintage look of your items, you can use distressing techniques. Sandpaper can be used for a weathered effect, and antiquing wax can be applied to give the pieces an aged appearance. Copper rub and buff are used to highlight decorative details and add a touch of holiday shimmer.

For added charm, experiment with layering transfers or add paint and designs where desired with a paint pen. By personalizing the items with artistic touches, they become unique pieces of holiday decor.

    Absolutely gorgeous! Are the plates food safe and washable with the transfers?

      Hi Molly! You can use a food safe sealer and they can be, but we do recommend using them as a display only for a longer lasting design ❤️🤗
