Heat Transfer Vinyl on Wood

Did you know that you can apply heat transfer vinyl on wood? 
If you stick vinyl on untreated wood, you will see it doesn't stick for a long time. You have to treat the wood. 
Or: you take heat transfer vinyl (HTV)! 
And there are so many different kinds and designs of HTV! 
Wusstet ihr, dass man Bügelfolie auf Holz aufbringen kann? 
Wenn man Vinylfolie auf unbehandeltes Holz klebt, stellt man schnell fest, dass es nicht lange hält. Man muss das Holz vorbehandeln. 
Oder: man nimmt Bügelfolie! 
Und es gibt so viele verschiedene Arten und Designs als Bügelfolie! 

What I used: 
plywood (untreated) 
HTV in green 
design HTV (Flower-Power) 
2 eyebolts 
iron (or heat press)
Teflon sheet (or baking paper) 
Was ich genutzt habe: 
Sperrholz (unbehandelt) 
Bügelfolie Flex in grün 
Design Flex Flower-Power 
2 Ringschrauben 
Bügeleisen (oder Transferpresse) 
Teflon-Folie (oder Backpapier)

Cut your design out of the design HTV and a bit bigger out of the green HTV (I've used m Silhouette Cameo but you can also cut it by hand).
Das Design aus der Design-Bügelfolie, und etwas größer aus der grünen Bügelfolie ausschneiden (ich hab es mit meinem Silhouette Cameo geschnitten, es geht aber auch per Hand).

Place the green HTV on the plywood. 
Cover it with the teflon sheet (or baking paper) and press it on with the iron (pressing, not moving). 
Die grüne Bügelfolie auf das Holz legen. 
Mit Teflonfolie (oder Backpapier) abdecken und mit dem Bügeleisen aufpressen (pressen, nicht bewegen).

Remove the transfer film of the HTV. 
Die Trägerfolie von der Bügelfolie entfernen.
