Seasonal Vinyl

A little seasonal Vinyl Decoration.

This post is dedicated to the love of vinyl.  It’s easy, fast, festive and not clutter’y’!

One thing about having a cutter is that it’s easy to add a little seasonal decor year round.

Keep reading and you’ll see how they are used:) Seasonal Vinyl

But wait…if you are thinking about buying a cutter hold off for a couple weeks.  Trust me…it’s cool!

And surprise…I linked all my fonts to the site where you can get them…You are welcome, or maybe I’m welcomed because that’s the #1 question I receive each time I do a vinyl post and I get like 10 of them.  You would think I would have thought of this sooner!  Whoo what a crazy couple sentences!

All the fonts are 12 inches long and 3 inches tall.

All the dingbats(that is what the doodles are called) are 3×3…and there are 3 of them.

I have put links to the fonts and dingbats.  Thanks to Amanda over at Peas for fonts for most of these!!!

She is a rock star!  If you need help with downloading the fonts, she has some great tips!

I gave one set to my sister-in-law, so they needed to be ‘wrapped up a bit’ so after I applied the backer paper I rolled it.  Be careful…don’t crease the vinyl.

Tied with ribbon.

Stacked.

Added more ribbon.

So are you still wondering what to do with it?

Here’s a hint.  My back door is a sliding door window.

It’s just a sliding door that usually has finger prints all over it.  It’s a great place to add a little fluff!

Apply to the window and OH it added a touch of festivity to summer!

My kids are actually in charge of putting these on and taking them off.  They are learning the seasons as well as learning how to work with vinyl:)

You can put it on a door, the front window, a wall, fridge, wherever!

Happy Creating.

PS For a Craft cutter we recommend Silhouette

    Any idea on how this could be done with non-sticky vinyl so that they could be window type clings instead of one time use vinyl adhesive decorations? I have a Cricut but I wonder where you could buy vinyl without adhesive to do what you are suggesting but not as stickers? -Karen

    I made similar signs a few months ago for each holiday; except I mounted each on a 2x4. Yeah, kinda defeats the whole storage-less decor, but they don't take up too much room!

    I found a website that sells 12" sheets of cling vinyl. I'm thinking I could easily cut that on my Cricut and make window clings with your patterns. -Karen

    I love your blog. I am newly retired and considering either a cricut or silhouette. What is the difference? Help.

      They are both great machines. One great thing we like about the Silhouette is it has the ability to hook up to your computer and use any font or graphic from your computer. This way you don't have to buy a new expensive cartridge for every theme you want. Plus they have great pre-made designs in their shop for only .99 a download.

    I was wondering if you can suggest a type of clear transfer tape that you're using. I would like to give my colleagues decal gift but I want it to look more professional. I've used Silhouette transfer paper but it's not clear. Also, may I ask why your papers are perforated both sides on the backing papers?
