I have a love for vinyl. Traci wanted some fun words to put on the boys new playroom walls. Since she was leaving for home we had to get them cut out today.

 We cut the words out in 3 different colors 

and fonts.

Also different sizes.

ranging from 3 1/2″ to 5″.

We also cut out the words “create” and “pretend”. I  forgot to take pictures of them. Once she gets them all put up in the playroom I’ll have her take some pictures, so I can show you.

 

We also cut these letters out, for each person in the family, to go over the bathroom towel hooks.  I think they’re 2 1/2″.

Then I was on a roll and remembered I’d been wanting to make house numbers for the front door. I think I must be one of the last ones in blog land to not have vinyl house numbers.

So, following the lead of so many of you wonderful bloggers, I took the plunge and made vinyl for the front door. When I’m applying it,  I always start with the middle letter and work out from there.

First I went to the right

And then to the left. You all know how I don’t like to measure.

I really love how great these numbers look on the front door and they’re easy to see from the sidewalk.

Really simple transformation,  but I  think it adds a lot.

Did you use a Cricut cartridge or SureCutsAlot? I just got a Cricut and I love the vinyl and ordered the SureCutsAlot on the advice of others in blogland.

Lori July 27, 2010 at 5:30 pm

Vinyl letters are certainly a fun to work with. My five year old son Mark loves to work around with these colorful letters in his room. Teaching him proper spellings has never been easier before.

The overall concept of using Vinyl Lettering for decorative purpose is simply wonderful. I too experiment a lot with different fonts and sizes.

Excellent project. If the lettering you are wanting to apply is quite long you may want to consider pre-masking the letters, this will make installation much easier as you can apply the lettering as one piece, rather than single letters.
