On the machine that the printer is connected to, go to Control Panel > Printers & Faxes, right-click the printer, click Sharing, check ‘Share this printer’. On the other machine go to Control Panel > Printers & Faxes > Add printer and follow the wizard. Bear in mind that the printer and the PC that it’s connected to must be switched on, unless you have a ‘proper’ wireless printer/adapter.
