Yes you can! Go to control panel > devices and printers > right click on your printer and choose "share"
Note: All devices must be at the same network type Public/Home-group/workplace. Also you should activate sharing and network discovery from network and sharing settings, Go to: Control Panel > network and sharing center > change advance sharing settings > Turn on network discovery and sharing files and printers from there.
Now to access a printer from other PC go to My Computer > Network Find the PC that have the printer attached to it, If you can see the printer then everything work perfectly.
To print a file throw MS word or other program go to printer setting from inside the program and choose printer over network from there, some progrmas requare to setup the printer from outside so go to control panel > Devices and printer > add printer > and choose printer over network "or IP" complete the setting to setup the driver..
NOTE: The PC that have the printer attached to it will act like a printer server in the network! So it must be ON Always.
You can connect the printer into the network directly without a PC by printer server like this one below,
