Stuff Week, Day 3: Wall Art for the Craft Geeks




Just because it says it’s a car decal does not mean it won’t also work as wall art. And with so many cute car decals out there, this is one technique I couldn’t pass up. I picked up these car clings from Vinyl Wall Art (vinylwallart.com).
With "Crafty Geek," "Bead Geek," "Scrapbook Nerd" and "Sewing Girl," I love how they represent different areas of my creative life, and with words like “nerd” and “geek” they definitely describe me well. As soon as I saw these, I knew they needed a place on my craft room wall. Here's what I did.

Step 1: Color Canvas


My craft room is pink and black, so I painted two 5" x 7" canvases black with acrylic paint.

I didn’t have pink paint, so I colored the two pink canvases with Glimmer Mist.


Step 2: Apply Vinyl



Apply vinyl to the canvas just as you would to any other surface by rubbing it into place.



Step 3: Adhere Ribbon
I stapled coordinating ribbon around the edge of each canvas, alternating between pink and black.


Step 4: Put your vinyl up on the wall in an order that works for you.



That's it! Four easy steps and you can have completely fun, completely unique wall decor.
