Customized Wall Decal: Made by Me Monday

Good morning! Today is the first edition of Made by Me Monday where I'm going to share my crafty projects with you and hopefully you'll share some back in the comments section.

For Christmas I got a Silhouette Cameo and have been doing alot of work with paper and experimenting with vinyl. I made a decal for our laundry room and knew exactly what I wanted to do in the nursery. William's room has a great six foot nook (we also have one in the master bedroom) where we have a large chair for reading and playing. Soon enough it will be home to William's own round child-sie table and chairs.


I wanted to use words of inspiration and creativity, also things that William can do in his own little nook. Once I came up with the words, I designed the decal in Silhouette Studio and then chose colors based on the vinyl I had available. Since I used a variety of colors, I had to cut each word/image separately so I pieced it together on the floor first.


 After applying the transfer tape, the decal looked like this, backwards since it has to go on the wall correctly.


I applied the decal to the wall…..


…and then pressed it on with my little "credit card" presser. This step is important because it adheres the decal to the wall and prevents bubbles and tearing.


My favorite part is peeling off the transfer tape and seeing the finished product!


Ta-Da!!



I would love to help you design a decal for your children's room. Please stop by my Facebook Page or send me an email memorabledesigns@gmail.com
