A baker, I am not. That is not even up for debate. When it’s time to bake something in my house, I usually head straight to the local bakery. I don’t even own a single rolling pin of my own. That’s why when I found these vintage wooden rolling pins for sale online, I was super excited to grab them to use for a pretty home decor diy project I’d had in mind.
Most of the supplies for this project, I already had on hand, but they are super easy to find here on my Amazon Shopping List.
- wooden rolling pins
- chalk-type or acrylic paint
- mod podge
- floral transfer of your choice
- paint brush
First Things First…
Paint the rolling pin your desired, light color, leaving the ends natural. Allow the paint to dry completely…this is important.
Apply a light layer of mod podge to the painted area. This will help the transfer to stick. Allow to dry until sticky.
Cut a piece from the transfer to fit around your rolling pin. I made one that used a floral transfer and another that used a gingham transfer. There are several different choices you can pick from in order to match your current decor.
Begin rubbing the transfer onto the barrel of the rolling pin. This may take awhile for the transfer to release, just be patient and continue rubbing until it is completely onto the rolling pin.

This was by far one of my favorite DIY projects. It is so versatile with the design choices. It makes the perfect gift for any occasion. Mine are displayed in a glass jar below.
